I haven't used one yet, but yes the first batch he wasn't happy with how they turned out and he sold them really cheap. I believe ducky has one of those.

The second batch was supposedly really good. And piscatuer and few others have those.

I'm yet to use one, but he has stopped bringing them in because he said it was a lot if headache to do them to his satisfaction. I had the chance to buy the last one but I couldn't afford it at the time. They are pretty lightweight and very nicely made.

Got here too late, was gonna say Rui rods ($300) are pretty awesome for the money. The componentry would value the rod in excess of $600. Toray Blank, TISic guides, and Fuji Seat. Its super lights and responsive and throws a jig a mile, (which I find very helpful landbased for covering ground). I also use a Hearty Rise Egi force ($359) (Dunno if u can still get them) Has a fantastic blank and balances my 2000 Certate perfectly, which is a fair effort for an 8'3" rod.
Ive felt quite a few Egi rods and they don't measure to the two above. Calamaretti, all of the Emeraldas models, even Breaden didnt impress.
What to look for?
1) Light in the hand as you're working the Jig like a mad man, and its a long rod too generally in excess of 8 foot.
2) Cast a mile, (No way to test but to have a cast unfortunately, getting that extra 5 -10M could mean the difference between reaching a reef of weed bed from shore
3) Crispness to fee the take,/ bottom feature.
What model do you use thank,s

I've got one of the second batch Rui rods, love it.
Was at full stretch a couple of weeks ago, bringing in a big cala, then a couple of cuttles across big tide flow down South of the bay. Rod performed flawlessly.

It's called explosive squid law or something along those lines.

It's the squid law 'explosive limit'
Which is somewhat ironic given my history with rods.
