The Daiwa VIP's are good, solid rods, well made, good components, I'd say hard to go wrong with one of those. I have a VIP 870 that I've used 2x only, but caught a nice 15 lb. yellowtail with, it handled it no problem. The 870 is rated 15-40, the 270 could be a tad light for a 50lb. + fish, but I''ve never caught a sturgeon so have no idea how they fight. If it were a 50 lb. tuna, it would be too light imo unless you wanted to play that thing for an hour or more until it died of exhaustion. If you hooked a really big 100lb. plus sturgeon, I''d venture to say you might want a rod with a little more backbone than a 270, but I''m sure it could be done. The triangular hypalon foregrip is very comfortable. I''d say they are a little better quality than an uglystick tiger...similar action to Calstar. If you could pick one up in new or really good condition for $50-65, it would be worth it for sure...I think at one point they went for around $100 but that was years ago when they first came out.
