Opinion please - Black label Rods especially the BL-FT 762ULXS

I have just been looking at matching a new Shimano Sustain SA2500FG with a new rod and came across the black label. Wanting to use this for Bream and especially flicking poppers etc at YF whiting. Living only a 2 minute walk from some nice Peel Estuary flats I wanted to give this a hot crack rather than compromising with my bunch of Pilbara designated flickies. And the colour matches the Sustain sooo well.

Thoughts appreciated.

 daiwa rods are pretty nice id go a 7foot model bit more of a allrounder unless you really need a long cast jmo

I dont rate Daiwa reels above Shimano

But I have to admit I do like their range off rods better. Dont know why but no Diawa rod has ever failed me, wheras some Shimanos have. I am looking at the 7footer Brg. I am no code expert and wrote this one down but I am certain it is the 7ft rod. They have a six foot version, but the extra foot allow a little versatility.
