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.
ProsFair value as it was bought at a discount from TackleDirect. Light weight, very comfortable for speed jigging.
ConsVery 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.

Bought to speed jig and possibly use as a jetty rod. Works well when vertical with heavier jigs. Lose some touch with anything under 4 oz. Can lean into a fish and the rod stays very stiff through the middle. Guides are very well constructed with plenty of gloss epoxy. Good looking rod but bummed it was made in China. I do not like the handle material, dents and tears very easily. I got the rod on sale and I think I got a good value. "Limited" Warranty is only 1 year.
ProsStiff heavy action through middle with fast action top 1/3. Great with heavy braid Strong reel seat
ConsMade in China Cheap handle material Butt end cap not fastened 1 year Warranty
