The PG143-7’0″ was designed with smaller running baits and top waters in mind. Similar to the PG144-7’0″ in strength and casting ability, the PG143-7’0″ offers enough power to control big fish but still allows you to make long, accurate cast with light weight baits.
From Power Tackle Pro Ray Hanselman:
“The 143 is another leader in its class when it comes to a jerk bait rod. It definitely has the right flex to give the bait the right action and enough bend not to pull small jerk bait hooks.”
