Great blank for freshwater Trout fishing

Went out freshwater Trout fishing yesterday with my arsenal of rods equipped with Microwave 25's and Airwaves. The star was the American Tackle Bushido rod bult on the the SP72-2/4-8 blank, it is simply a Trout fisherman's dream rod! Handles everything with aplomb and laughs at the fish while doing it! With the G2 split grip handle system, Aero CCT reel seat, MW25's and a size 20 reel, it is comfortable, light and simply crushes my other rods in comparison! My go-to for a great day on the water! And yes, we caught fish up to and including one about 2 1/2 pounds, with a larger one lost at the net!
