    I don't have one, but I've used one. Man, that's one heavy duty solid fiberglass rod. Maybe good for building up his muscles, but I'd probably look at the Shakespeare Sturdy Stiks, which are also solid fiberglass but a little lighter, or one of the American Spirit Night Sticks, which are very tough hollow eglass rods. Both of of these are in the same price range as the Daiwa rod, maybe even a little cheaper.

    All the beefsticks I have seen where broomsticks.I also like the american spirit rods.They are priced right and have a good action.

    no its really light the tag that came on the rod says powerful fiberglass construction. For a 28 dollar rod it feels really nice it will pull anything i catch in, i cant seem to break 15lbs, if your on a budget like i am i think it its a good rod for the money

    yeah just picked a 6'6" MH Beefstick and i must say it is heavy duty. can barely bend the tip manually and the rod itself is heavy- weight wise. Bolted on a Okuma reel and now I feel like I have a setup to tackle a shark!! bought setup so I can have a heavy duty setup on Ohio river. Haven't used it yet, but it appears to be a solid rod.

    Just to update.. Over the weekend I had the pleasure of reeling in a monster Flathead off my beefstick. Don't have an exact weight but it was 45in long with a girth of 32. some where between 45-55 lbs. I had no problems getting him in. Rod grip length was excellent and I had no worries on the rod end of the deal. Rod provided excellent leverage while reeling in a pig from 60+ feet of water.
