Great rod for the money
July 22, 2013
Bought this rod for a trip to Belize. I needed a rod that can handle stingrays, nurse sharks and tarpon. The 7' heavy spinning model did an admirable job on two stingrays and a 36" tarpon. It was able to cast live herring and grunts accurately for a distance of 40 yards (that's all we needed to cast). It also was able to cast very well within the stated casting range (3/4oz to 3oz). Unfortunately, I didn't get to test it on a nurse shark.
Only regret is that a travel rod case was not included, unlike other travel rods offered by other companies. Would have received 5 stars otherwise.
Pros:Price, quality, construction
Cons:Lacking a travel rod case
