I've reviewed your rods and have a question for which one fits my needs best. I target mainly Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish from surf/piers/jetties throughout the Panama City, FL area. It would be sporting my extra 5000 Penn Battle loaded with 12 lb flouro. I fish 7/8 oz to 1 oz gotcha plugs and 1 oz Deadly Dicks for the most part. Your classic inshore MLS looked appealing with its 1/2oz-1 1/2oz weight rating. I prefer Fuji style guides and cork handles if possible.
