Anyone fished the SB780 in Rx6? Wondering how sensitivity is on this one?

Thanks

Nope, but SB843-3 (travel rod) seems fine. I don't know if all SB's are the same with respect to action, but the 843 is very fast indeed. Heavy butt that goes a long ways up.

Yes, many years ago, it's a dandy like all Batson blanks.

OOPS! My rod is the SB841-3, not 843. CCS says it is a much more powerful blank than the "1" in the model number indicates.

for me SB780 is an extra-fast action blank with a very soft tip, I 've always wondered why it is described by Batsons as mod-fast ?

You have some pictures of this blank under load here:
