701L & 801L (Light):

The rod is light like a feather and very thin. The blank weighs only 2.5 oz, but it is strong enough to swing one gallon of water (8lb). The beauty of this rod is that the tip is extremely sensitive to detect any delicate bites, but it has a strong backbone and power.  This rod is good for fluke, snapper, scup, and even striped bass or blue.

Targets: Fluke, Sea Trout, Red Fish, Calico Bass, Snapper

731M & 801M (Medium):

There are no ultimate togging rods as fishermen have different tastes, but I can not think of any better togging rod than the Challenger Bank 731M. The rod reminds you of original GLoomis rods, but it has a softer tip while having tremendous lifting power for its class. This rod is good for blackfish, striped bass, yellowtail, and mutton snapper. In fact, it can handle any inshore fish. The blank weighs only 3.8oz. 

We landed many 10+lb Togs and 35lb Cod with 801M Rod.

Targets: Blackfish, Striped Bass, Bluefish, Yellowtail, Big Red Fish, Light Cod or Seabass Jigging, Big Snapper

731H & 801H (Heavy):

This rod is good for deep drops, cod, tuna, halibut, or grouper. When you target big fish like tuna, grouper, or halibut, you think of heavy-duty rods. However, this light and thin rod can handle big fish like heavy-duty rods, but in half weight.  The blank weighs 5.6oz, but 200lb tuna was landed This rod is unique and there are no peers in terms of lightweight and super strength.

Targets: Deep Drop, Big Halibut, Deep Water Seabass Jigging, Cod or Tuna Jigging
