ANDE Stand-Up rods are designed to place a great deal of strain on large fish while the angler stands up to do battle. Strength and lifting power are prime requirements in this rod type and are designed-in through the use of top quality materials and components.

The full length, blank through butt, dual layer graphite and fiberglass construction delivers plenty of strength and power. The strong solid tip aids enormously in lifting big fish. Ergonomic fore grip shape helps control rod and line. Aluminum gimbal butt fits all fighting belts. Fully under wrapped heavy duty fixed guide frames protect highly polished aluminum oxide guides for smooth, wear free line flow. Stainless steel roller stripper and tip top guides on ''R'' models provide smoother line flow and more fighting control. Corrosion proof machined aluminum reel seats with heavy duty machined hoods deliver greater strength without excess weight.

A $7.00 oversize packaging charge applies to this item as it ships in a long heavy duty tube to protect your items. This fee will still apply when discount shipping coupons are used.

Best standup rod for the money by far
April 5, 2015
I've long been a fan of the fast action of Ande graphite rod blanks more than any other brand all the way up through stock versions of Calstar and Seeker. I tried the 20-50 version of this years ago and found it far more toward the 20 lb class than the 50 and sold it and forgot about these rods again. Eventually it occurred to me to try out the 50-80 lb standup rod in case it was the elusive light fast action 50 lb standup rod I was looking for, as the MH version had been very much on the light side of its class. It did turn out to be exactly what I was looking for. A fast enough tip to be fun on any fish, yet a large amount of backbone lower in the rod (it will lift a 20 lb weight without turning into a U) if called upon. So far I've caught 135-150 lb striped marlin without problem on it fishing up to 18 lbs of drag, and am looking forward to trying it on a blue marlin when I get the chance once I put Makaira 15's on some. It's early days to see how the components hold up on these rods, but have never had trouble with Ande's yet, whereas inexpensive Penn, Jarvis Walker, and other brands I've used have all ended up literally coming unglued (spinning reel seats, gimbals, etc). If you're looking for a classic beefy 50-80, look somewhere else, but for a great light 50 that will be fun on anything from small tuna to nice marlin, this is a great choice.
ProsFast action tip, great taper Plenty of guides Lots of backbone for its weight Light
ConsNot a true 50-80 lb class rod if you're looking for one but I wasn't looking for one.

Excellent Rods

I've used these rods for bottom fishing for years now and have never had a problem with them. I've had everything from B liners to 70+ pound amberjacks on them with no issues. Clear coat hasn't chipped off or de laminated from the sunlight like I've had happen with other brands.
