This is not a steelhead rod it is a heavy action for heavy fish which is what I bought it for. I would like it more for my fishing if the butt was about 6" shorter but I can live with it like it is. The cork is an excellent touch for gripping.

Finally got to use this pole surfcasting off Marthas Vineyard. Using 20lb test mono, casting 2 to 4 oz lures, it performed well. I'm sure it would cast heavier with no problem. Caught many Bluefish running up to 12 lbs and it handled them great. Probably don't need a pole with this action but it gives you the option to cast the heavy stuff.

Just recieved two Okuma Longitude 9 ft casting Xtra Heavy rods. I unpacked them. I inspected them, and found them to be very high quality, and I would compare them to any of the high priced rods, and I have several of those! The finish on the rods is flawless, they are graphite blanks, with braced guides, and an ergonomic cork wraped handle, with foam cushion above and below the reel seat. The reel seat is beefy and will fit even the largest casting or spinning reel. I already had two 12ft Okuma Solaris rods, and they have been fantastic. The Longitude is just as good looking, and functional as my high priced rods If I buy any more surf rods, they will be Okuma Longitude!! They are half the cost of the upper crust rods, and have 100% of the quality. I am pleasantly surprised, and totally satisfied. Mine are casting rods, and I have put Ambassadeur 6500=C3 reels on them, and they balance perfectly. I got xtra heavy, because most of our Red Drum are 6 to 12 lbs, but every so often a 38 to 45 incher strikes, and I need the back bone of a heavy rod to beach the fish quickly to be released without much stress. I have surf fished for 55 years, and take it from an old salt, you will not be disappointed with the Okuma Longitude. "They come in spinning and casting, from 8 to 12 feet, and medium to x-Heavy. They are half the price, without sacrificing one bit of quality!! A really great value!! I cannot mention my other rod's names because of the review guidelines, but I did buy these two online from Walmart, and you will not find a better rod for $200.

The action of this rod is perfect for surf fishing using bottom rigs. It is a stiff rod rod with plenty of backbone. I only wish the rod was thinner and that the reel seat was lower on the rod. I looked a long time for a cheaper surf rod and I could not find one to beat this rod under a hundred dollars.
