Quick Update. He managed to get out for a few hours to try out the Fireblade and he reckons it's a beautiful rod. He was using it with a Penn Surfblaster.My Brother in Law got one last week, but as he's still recovering from Covid-19, he hasn't had a chance to try it out yet.
Could I ask where you ordered it from SiD, would love to get a look at oneBeen up the field again, this time with 525mag and mon main, braid leader. Casts well, just need to back off the mags and see how it really goes. Too much wind for that today. Love the way it loads without power casts, simple otg does the job. Love the unassuming way it looks, bare carbon (tip is even unground) & plain wippings. It's a tool and not a tarts handbag!
