I was taping up the 14'3" 7/8 solstice riverside this morning, and gave it the old wag test. Very funny thing. When you wag it aggresively unlined it looks like a noodle. Bends down to the cork. When you have it lined up and are casting it however, it doesn't feel, look, or act that way at all. First time I've seen a rod that behaves so much differently than you would think it does from its "showroom" performance. Granted I'm using a lighter line (624 grains at 78 feet) than most, but I'm not so sure that explains things.

Anybody else notice this?

You are smoking too much of the sweet leaf:smokin:

That thing bends down to the cork whether you realize it or not. Just has a fast recovery which makes it feel faster when casting. Have Aaron take some video of you casting the rod and you will see the cork bend.

the sweet leaf,,,too much!hahaha,i wagged one next to another older rod of unmentionable origin,i know what the `unmentionable' is capable of ,don't kid yourself!,just load it and fire,i doubt the rod would have went into production if it wasn't great,some rods just have a feel/action that,well,might feel noodly in the parking lot,get out of the parking lot!! :D
