How can they sell this much rod this cheap?!
August 20, 2014
I was very skeptical about this rod. It was on sale for $60 and I needed a spinning rod that could keep up with my new fin nor lethal 100 (80lbs braid and 50lbs of max drag), and this one had the specs to match it, so i gave it a shot. Glad I did! The rod is beautiful with an aluminum cross cut ball style gimble, x flocked foregrip, cross weave carbon fiber bottom half of the rod, and smooth stranded weave on the tip end. The rod is very deceiving because of its light weight and thin diameter. It has power and sensitivity to spare! It balances larger heavy spinning reels like my lt100 and penn 706 very well, making them easy to cast and fish all day. paired up with my lethal, it has landed 2 50 lbs cobias, and a 7' hammerhead so far. Bottom line is that what I have paid in the past for just the blank this rod is built on, you get a finished rod built with quality components!
Cons:stiff, needs close to max weight to get good distance on a cast(but that is expected with such a powerful rod)
