I have 4 Triumphs all the same med-heavy and fast action. They're about 5 years old, St. Croix's lower end but still perform and hold up better than most rods twice their price IMO.
It was going off this morning -off the beach- about 2 jetty lengths out- only 2 guys on it- huge rips through the bait... was bummed i was going to work...
Anyone else paddle out on a board or a kayak... or even skish? so much fun hooking up with a big one!
8ft custom with 150vs and 30lb suffix
How does the suffix compare to PP in terms of wind knots? It's a bit more expensive, right?
Isn't the Suffix a round-wound braid? I use PP also, but my buddy just got some round-wound (I think it's suffix) and that stuff is awesome!

Early run king salmon numbers are WAY down in southcentral AK - more people than fish - but there are a few of 'em out there (like this 60 pounder caught 2 days ago on the Deshka).
