We shipped a Big Shoals with the three piece frame option over to Norbert Renaud in Ireland last year. Recently he got it out for it's first run of the season and it looks like the early season pike action is hating up in .
He has a nice little nugget on the two glass ten weights that I sampled in Louisiana with the Fiberglass Manifesto. I agree with Norbert's assessments on those rods completely. Both the Echo Bad Ass glass and the Epic Bandit 10wts are worthy rods and should have a place among any serious big fish angler's arsenal. Oh yeah and the video is pretty bad ass too.
