I bought this rod for my annual Canada fishing and it did not disappoint. I paired it with a Shimano Curado and 20 lb braid.. This combo was deadly on walleye, Pike and Muskie. Super sensitive tip and plenty of back bone.
In the future, I would purchase a Pike rod that was 2” longer, 2” more butt and a bit stiffer. The Deputy was a great addition to my rods and will be my go to.
I’ve used A LOT of rods in my 30 years of fishing and this by far is the best rod I’ve used for slinging soft plastic worms to creature baits Texas rigged. I would recommend to anyone.
