Lemax black rose

Anyone have any info on a lemax black rose 70mhfs2??? I think its 7ft rated at 10-25lb which is quite a fair range.

Would it be suitable for flicking softies for snapper, spanglies, etc

probably overkill

for just pinkies and spangos (unless you hook a horse), but with those ratings it should be a fairly versatile stick for what you mentioned plus stuff like tuna and queenies etc.

I agree with Huggy.

I've got the 8ft Black Rose and it's a great rod, got plenty of grunt in the back end.

The 6'6" should do you for local pinks but the 7'0 will give you the extra range.  I took the 7'0 Lemax SlimMax to Coral Bay earlier in the year year and it held up well with plastics in the shallows and also flicking around land based for queens, trevs etc.
