and Im out of here. I mean the bend starts in the foregrip area, and that is usually a weaker area in most rods.

Amazing bend in it.

The smiths seem to do that, bent right from the butt area. Chrisps AMJ does the same and recall seeing a video Kasey with an AMJ52EX on a big sambo looking like it was gonna snap at the grip.....but they don't. Sweet rods.

I recon if bakers got 10kg you'd have a pretty damn hard time stopping them. They go mighty hard for their size.

 

So what model smith was it?
