    Came across these on EBay and was wondering if anyone has tried them out before I buy them and tie them to some 209s. The seem sturdy, and they're considered boat rods.

    The seller is selling them brand new in a pack of two and they're about $60 for both of them. And I seriously can't see a downside to buying them, especially 2 of them.

    I just bought one, I think it is a slammer 15-30. It is a combo of really light tip and heavy butt. The foam handles are kinda easy to snag. The guides look fine, haven't used it yet.

    I gotta slammer as well but haven't been able to use it. waiting on my abu 6500 to get here for it. the tip is a lot softer than I like but once you get a foot foot and a half down the rod y ou can feel the backbone. I think it will be a real sweet rod to go with circles because of the tip
