This rod is light (about 11 oz) and has a pretty strong back bone. Rod action is too stiff for lighter lures, good for fishing lures from 5 to 9 oz. In hockey terms, this rod is just like a tough, reliable 3rd line centre; doesn't cost you a whole lot, nothing fancy but can get the job done if used within its' limitations.
Pros:Fair value as it was bought at a discount from TackleDirect. Light weight, very comfortable for speed jigging.
Cons:Very poor materials for the handles, must be used with caution to avoid dent and tear. Overall quality of the rod is not worth the regular MSRP.
