I was in Freddies and when I noticed their 10% sale on rods, I started looking for another pair of rods for my boat. I'm looking for a heavy rod 8 1/2 or 9' length. The berkley IM8's looked pretty good, and when you knock off 10% and send in their factory rebate for another $15, they seem like a decent rod. Just wondering if anyone is fishing them and what they think of them. I'll be using them for trolling for kings, mooching for silvers, and jigging for salmon, rockfish and whatever else will bite a small jig.
I have a pair of shimano scimitars and a shimano clarus as a comparison.
