This rod is a casting version of the 31″ spinning rod. It is longer because it has a longer butt section but it has the same blank. This rod is a good all purpose JawJacker rod. Recommended for use with 6-10 lb test line and it will set jigs up to 1/8 oz. well with the JawJacker. This rod works well when targeting fish in the 2- 10 lb range.
