This is a short review of the Majorcraft 7''3" Exizaust PE rod review

The rod is rated for .6-1.2 PE which roughly translate to 6-12lb test braided line. I spooled the Exceler 2500 with 6lb Suffix SB for this short test of the rod's ability to reduce windknot. Note that the spooled was filled pretty much to the rim to really test the ability of this PE rod at reducing or eliminating windknot.

Condition was 10-15 knots East wind on a shallow flat where
I was fishing the deeper hole. I cast North, Northeast most of the time so the wind has plenty of effect on the cast.
The water was very clear, typical condition in winter time here in Tampa Bay and water temp was 63 degrees and air temp was about 67 degrees.

The trouts were very cooperative with 10 hits in the first ten casts. There were some nice trout mix in there from 16-21 inches. Trout season is closed down here November and December so it's all C&R.

I was throwing 1/4 oz jig head with a variety of Gulp bait. The rod and reel handle the very thin 6lb Suffix braid(with 20lb flurocarbon leader) easily and effortlessly. Because the guides are very small, forget about casting the line to leader knot thru the guides.

The closest action that I can describe this rod would be a medium action 7ft St Croix Avid although the action is more of a mod fast action than fast action. Strength and backbone wise, it is very comparable to the St. Croix. The rear grip on this rod is 9 inches, compare to 8.5 inches for a St. Croix Avid 7ftr. This is a relatively short rear grip making this rod's effective length closer to 7''6" when compared to most 7''6" rod.

I moved around a bit to find some redfish and there were a ton of rat reds(15-18 inches) as usual and they were a ton of fun on 6lb braid. The rod handle the fish quite easily.

I finally found some red big enough to test the strength of the Suffix and the rod. A nice 6.5lbs, 25 inch redfish. The rod handle the fish quite easily.

In 2 hours of endless casting and catching about 20 trouts and a dozen reds, I never did get one windknot.

The Sol was feeling lonely riding on the Wade-aid on my back so I caught several trouts with it.

On a side note, the Sol perform perfectly with 20lb Suffix SB.

The Majorcraft sure earn its place on the open flats especially when using very thin braid line and I give it a thumbs up.
