Mike Perry from the east coast shows what you can catch with a Breakaway 10ft 6in rod and the Akios reel combo. This is his E mail
Heres what your 10′ 6″ custom rod with a akios 656csm brought in… together they weighed in @ 46 pounds. Thanx for setups.
PS: Got a friend who has caught 5 stripers with the HDX series rod.
