I have really been impressed with the new Rapala Magnum spinning rod for salwater fishing. This rod is really a freshwater rod but I have been testing it extensively fishing southwest Florida for fish up to 10 lb. and it has performed with flying colors.
The Magnum series is a little heavier than the Shift or Concept TI, but it is also more robust with the right amount of flex which makes it ideal for casting or trolling. If you travel to warm locations in the winter time and you are looking for a spinning outfit that you can take with you make sure to check out the Rapala Magnum series.
