[quote="RISE"]Starting a new thread, but wanted to do a quick post in here to mention that I got to spend a few days on the water with the Hooligan, Cristobal Ltd. and my favorite big bait stick...The Lion Heart. Also got to add hours onto other favorite sticks in the collection.
Hooligan is a very nice stick. Loads up well on the cast with a 3/8 oz lead head jig and trailer. Sensitivity is also very good, and the rod was able to paint a clear picture of the bottom composition. Is it worth the retail price??? I'll need more time with it to answer that honestly. I own many outstanding bottom contact rods, so the hooligan will need to earn its stripes, so-to-speak. We will see if it can do so in the coming weeks.
