Managed to snag one of the first batch of 610MLs, got it today.

First impression - this is not a DS rod. Compared to my Expride 610ML, it seems to be about a power heavier through the tip and mid section. Probably perfect for 4" flukes, finesse swimbaits and jigs...maybe a finesse hard jerkbait rod too. FWIW the 6'7ML Adrena lies somewhere between the Expride and Vigore in power.

Incredibly light and balanced as you would expect - fit/finish is perfect 10/10.
What total weight would you say it tops out at? If possible, would you be willing to post some pics?

Congrats!
one of the Vigore videos from Olympic did mention the power of 610ML is more in line with M, so it looks right I guess...
when you say it is not a DS rod, do you mean the tip is not soft enough? I also have a Expride 610ML and I wouldn't mind Vigore has a little stiffer tip as I won't use it for vertical drop shot.
