Rod Characteristics

This custom rod is 7’6″ in length and is Medium-Heavy Power weighted for 8-17 pound test.

As we have learned through other fishing rod analyzation, fishing rod powers vary across the board.

The Salt Strong custom rod falls right between a Medium action rod and a Medium-Heavy action rod.

Within Bull Bay’s medium power blanks, they have thick-walled construction.

This means the diameter of the rod is still the same as any other medium power rod, however, there is more material in the mid-section of the rod than other manufacturers.

In comparison to the different TFO Professional Series models of fishing rods, the Bull Bay custom rod comes out as the lightest option.

The increase in power and lightweight rod allows you to fish structure like docks or mangroves comfortably and without concern.

Unique Features

This rod is also equipped with a direct-contact reel seat.

That means when you rest your hand on the reel seat, you will be able to feel all of the vibrations within the rod.

You will feel the bottom and every bite as you work your lures with this advanced feature.

In addition, the rod has a double-locking reel seat.

There are two locking mechanisms that twist up and reinforce the security of the reel in the reel seat.

Just about every 2500-3000 spinning reel from Daiwa, Shimano, among other brands will fit securely and snugly in this reel seat.

Furthermore, the butt section of the fishing rod is fully made out of cork.

The length of the butt section is also not too big where it interferes with your fishing technique and it is not so small where you are struggling to maintain contact with your lure or a fish.

It is a perfect length for you to maintain contact with your lure and for you to fight fish without relying on your forearms for strength.

The butt length creates balance and comfortability for anglers.

Moreover, just above the butt section is the ever-so-popular hook keeper.

The hook keeper makes it easier to keep hold of soft plastic lures, especially on weedless setups.

It is also located on the side of the rod so it will not interfere with your casting or catch the mainline in any way.

Finally, the fishing guides on this rod are of top quality and are what Bull Bay uses on all of its fishing rods.

The guides themselves are slightly angled upward in order to assist in preventing wind knots.

Although that is yet to be proven, this style of rod guide is very rigid.

They can take slight dings and maintain structural integrity much more than a typical 90-degree angled guide.

Paired mine with a Shimano Vanford 3000 reel. Casts and reels much better than my Daiwa Fuego and Falcon rod setup, and the sensitivity is exactly as described here. Very happy with it. Thank you for all of the effort put into this rod!

Thanks for this review. Was looking in to the bull bay custom for some time.

looks good is there still a rod in the works with Mudhole or did this take the place of that? I have been looking forward to a custom Salt Strong rod.

Looking forward to it. I have been building my own rods for a little while. Might be time to buy one again.

I have both the TFO professional 7’6 Medium and the Bull Bay Custom rod. I had the TFO rod first. The only con I would say is the tip feels a little soft. That’s when I purchased the Bull Bay rod. The Bull Bay is a little stiffer in the tip. I have the Bull Bay paired with the Daiwa Procyon 3000. Seems like a perfect fit to this rod. Balances very nicely and casts a mile.

Justin, you are spot on with regards to the rigidity of the rod. A fellow member let me test out the rod and it feels like a 10-20 medium action rod. If you are fishing for trout I would look at a Bull Bay Sniper 7’6 6-12. This rod is more of a bull red/monster snook type of rod.
