I recently purchased (2) NFC MB 705-1 (Delta LMX) blanks. Any good or bad opinions out there?

I like the blank, but I'm out west and more used to these style rods. I find the x-fast medium power tip followed by a more medium heavy body and butt to like jerkbaits, spinnerbaits, topwaters, and rip baits. My early HM and IM models also did well with jigs, senkos, and Texas rigs within the lighter tip's parameters of 3/16 to 5/8, 3/4 oz took the snap out of the tip more than I personally like.
It's a nice stick that does a decent job twitching 3/8 to 1/2 oz marabou jigs for coho salmon also.
