Had one of these I bought as a combo w/ a 2500 Sienna & spooled it w/ #8 Stren. Found myself using it a lot as my go to rod & it will handle 6/7+ lb Bass. Decided to get another but couldnâ€;™;t find one anywhere... But..Tackle Direct had em so I bought 2! This is a good rod!!
ProsA light rod. It has enough backbone to handle large fish.
ConsI can find no fault with this rod
good budget travel rod

This rod is awesome for the price. I am a die hard Shimano reel fan and never had a Shimano rod till now. I purchased this rod for the ease of packing it away when I am on a trip ,because my main rod is a one-piece GLoomis GL2. I am not kidding when I say that this rod is lighter than the GL2. This rod has the finesse to flip any bait or lure into a tight spot ,as well as the power to muscle out a fish from cover. Given the price of this rod I would recommend it to anyone.
ProsPrice, Casting precision, and the Craftsmanship of this rod even though you pay pennies for it.
ConsNone so far.
Great all around rod.
