ANDE Stand-Up rods are designed to place a great deal of strain on large fish while the angler stands up to do battle. Strength and lifting power are prime requirements in this rod type and are designed-in through the use of top quality materials and components.

The full length, blank through butt, dual layer graphite and fiberglass construction delivers plenty of strength and power. The strong solid tip aids enormously in lifting big fish. Ergonomic fore grip shape helps control rod and line. Aluminum gimbal butt fits all fighting belts. Fully under wrapped heavy duty fixed guide frames protect highly polished aluminum oxide guides for smooth, wear free line flow. Stainless steel roller stripper and tip top guides on ''R'' models provide smoother line flow and more fighting control. Corrosion proof machined aluminum reel seats with heavy duty machined hoods deliver greater strength without excess weight.

An $8.00 oversize packaging charge applies to this item as it ships in a long heavy duty tube to protect your items. This fee will still apply when discount shipping coupons are used.

Got this rod for trolling in the Chesapeake Bay. Paired with Penn squall 40 and very happy with the set-up. Look forward to many years of use with this rod!

I was apprehensive about the rod at this price point. Pleasantly surprised. Muscled a 6-8’ Nurse Shark in 100’ of water paired with a Penn Squall 20LW reel and 50# braid. When people asked me where I got this rod and then tell them what it cost, they went home and ordered some too! Lots of backbone and a nice sensitivity tip.
Best value rod there is

I have been using these rods for 20 years. Never once had one break or a guide fail. I think I replaced one because after about 8 seasons of salt water use I couldn't get the nut un-jammed on the reel seat
Prosgreat price and will haul in any inshore fish in New England

I went out on a Head Boat and was disappointed with their gear so I started looking for a Rod and since I don't think that I would go out more than five to six times a year I didn't want to spend a lot but I wanted a good Rod , Well this hit all the marks , Value , Fit and finish , Planning to get a second one so if I can get my Wife or Son to go they'll have a setup too .
ConsNo gimbel cover but that's no big deal .

Ande Stand-up heavy rods
July 3, 2019
Great purchase for the price.
Rods arrived and looked great
First trip out they held up pretty well, they say heavy tackle but are not exactly heavy duty. Great for bottom fishing for snapper, trigs, decent-big AJs but idk if they can handle a big shark or bigger AJ.
Overall great rod for the price.

Purchased 4 of these rods to basically have some cheaper rods for snapper season and basic bottom fishing.
They look great for being rods in the cheaper end but held up great on our first trip out but time will tell.
Overall they seem to be worth the money.
ProsCheap price Great look
ConsNone at this time but it will all come down to how well they hold up

Ande standup pole

Not a bad pole for the price. Read some crappy reviews but I can't complain. Caught a 34# bass no problems. For $60 you can't go wrong...

Love them!
February 10, 2019
Tried the 5'6" and 6'0" out in our shark spread paired with fin-nor st50s and they have exceeded expectations. Landed 3 bucketlist sharks including 2 bulls and a hammerhead on the last trip. Very sensitive, plenty strong, take abuse well. They really play the fish but still have plenty of backbone. Plan to buy more for up coming season.

Owned and distributed by the same company that produces Tsunami rods

The rods this company produces are amazing. I live right down the road from them funny enough, but more importantly is the quality that their poles give you versus the price you pay for them. My stand up 80-100 conventional is so sensitive that you can not only feel every lump and bump on the bottom, and every strike, but also tough as nails on big fish. I have caught dorado,Small tuna, brown sharks, blue sharks, and even small threshers on this brand of rods with zero problems

Bang for the Buck
January 30, 2017
I bought 2 6' 20-50 lb rods for striper trolling Overall a nice Rod. Would like to have seen a little better set of guides but for $53,i can't complain to much. The double locking reel seat is nice. I would buy again. Good bang for the buck.

Great For Trolling

This rod is great for trolling, it's strong and the tip can handle the drag of pull small umbrella rigs in your spread. Can't go wrong for the price.

Is this rod heavy enough to troll the tandem mojo rigs that have become popular for stripers in NJ? or would the 50-80 lb rod with roller guides be better?
1 Answer
its a good set up for striped bass.

What reels are appropriate for this rod??
1 Answer
Hello Joe. The Shimano TLD 20 would be a good reel to match with the ASU-561A SBH.
