    I don't know about them, but I got a 11 ft Daiwa beefstick lately, I just tried casting a couple times today, with 3 oz I was getting about 100 yds. I got it to try surf fishing, but also wanted to use it to get out to deep water in some lakes in MN. Wow, I was impressed.

    I would assume you are talking about the Water Eagle model. I know Cabelas sells them. The 10' casting and spinning models have a lure rating of 1-5oz. If you are going to cast 8oz and bait I would be searching for a rod with a lure rating of 6-12oz. The eagle claw will probably be too soft to do anything but lob 8nbait. Good luck.

    8oz is nothing to this rod in 10ft.It handles it with ease.

    I know someone with one of them and it seems to do well. I'm not sure if it is the same model but his is 9'.

    I had a nine foot years ago and it served me well for the money, until I did upgrades.

    I forgot to mention that I am reviewing the older model water eagle rod.Not the newer one without the cork handle.Just bought the newer model 10 footer today for $12 bucks out the bargin cave at cabelas.It has a diffrent real seat,guides,and handle.You can also see the string like stuff where they wrapped the guides.The guides and real seat look exactly the same as on my Ugly stick Big water.But I'm pretty sure there the same.
    Ill give and update this summer on how it performs next to the old one.

    I tried a 9' Water eagle MH and it did not like more than 3 oz of weight. I mean we could lob a 6 oz cannonball & about 1oz of cut bait 60-80 yards with 30 lb braid, but it went where it wanted no real consistancy with more than 3 oz on. I just got 2 - 9' MH Whuppin Sticks & took em out just to see how heavy I could get, & with my Okuma Avenger 55's with 50 lb braid they did great with 2-4 oz, 5-6oz was fair but more than that it was iffy.
