    Just added a 13 foot Breakaway HDX to my arsenal of long rods. So far I am hitting around or over 500 feet.

    Nice rod, but still prefer the Lami rods. Distance wise it is great.

    Nice rod and great distance at 500 feet. What type of line do you use? Have you ever use Breakaway mono line, if so do you have any opinions on the quality of the line?

    Thanks

    I have a 7500CT spooled with 25# Berkely Big Game and a shock leader. Cant's say much about Breakaway line or how it would do. I guess in the real world with 6nbait above 400, but not a great deal over that.

    i lost by a total of 42ft. and finished second overall. due to a miscommunition i didn't get to improve on my 509 even though i had one over 600 that didn't count if i had put that one on the field i would have won.

    What is the 'breakaway' feature of a rod.I am in the market for a long rod for surf fishing and would like to know if this feature would be useful for my needs.
    Thanks

    They have two versions that is either the LDX or the HDX. The HDX is for heavier weights up to 8 ounces for distance.
