A slightly more powerful casting rod designed for fishing the flats, the PR844 is a good choice for a number of different species, including snook, specks, snapper and even small tarpon. Works well with the live bait, but casts spoons, soft plastics and jigs equally well. It is a fast-action rod, but leans towards moderate a bit, which is helpful when fighting big fish. It has sufficient power to handle large permit or jacks out in the gulf, but it's better suited for shallow water. GL3 offers a good blend of sensitivity and light weight.
