Chrisv sold me a Fenwick HMG Travel Rod with both a medium tip and medium light tip. My BG 3500 was a little large for the reel seat so I put an IronPTS30 on it. Quickly found the sheepshead in Orange Beach and caught my share while two boats were filming a fishing show. Live shrimp hooked through the tail worked for me. Moved to another location and had not stop action with juvenile mangroves. The light medium tip is much stronger than I imagined. It was stiffer than my teramar medium light fast. I look forward to giving it some more testing in South Florida.
