Not a bad rod, just not for me
October 4, 2013
I chose this rod because it has a lure weight rating of 1-3oz. The MH version is rated for 2-5oz. I wanted to through metal/ bucktails/plugs from 1-4oz and the 902M seemed like it would fit the bill better. The rod hits the scale at 9.7oz which is a great for the shoulder. I knew the guides were small due to the newest braid ready design.
Since I ordered the rod online I did not have an opportunity to feel it until it arrived. Once it was in my hand I was less than impressed. I took it down to the school yard to test cast it. The tip guide is so small that my knot got stuck-that's small! I just did not like the rod at all for what I do. I returned it and for the same price I got a St Croix Triumph 10' 3/4-4oz and love it. it is perfect for what I need!
Cons:everything I mentioned above
