great rod, initially purchased for bait fishing. It felt a bit light for the rated weight but its surprisingly sensitive with good backbone. It will easily throw 3 to 6 oz and does surprisingly well with smaller weights. Ive plugged with it as well throwing everything from sp minnows to tins. Its a great low cost rod.

I still enjoy fishing with bait every now and then and these rods were right in my budget. What I enjoy the most is that they are a medium heavy fast action rod. I'm please with this purchase.
Hi I received diawa ECA1002MHFB but all I use are spinning reels Can I use a spinning reel on this rod? How bad of an idea will it be considering the first eye is pretty far from reel seat.
The rod model that you have is designed to be used with conventional reels. A spinning reel would fit on the rod and you would be able to fish with it, however the guide layout would significantly hinder your ability to cast well. Also, the blank is designed to bend in the opposite direction than it would if you were fishing the rod with a spinning reel. I would strongly suggest getting a different rod that is designed for spinning reels.
