This is a double extra heavy rod with fast action. Use it with 20-40# Flouro or 30-65# braided line. Good for frogs, mat punching, and all close range flipping.
From Power Tackle Pro Ray Hanselman:
“The 970 and the 1100 are the new Power Point flipping rods, and they are great because they are light and easy on the shoulder and elbow after flipping all day. The 970 is a great shallow flouro flipping rod in light to medium cover. The 1100 will handle flouro or braid in medium to heavy cover in medium to deep depths of water.”
