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.

A $7.00 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.

Bang for the Buck
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.

Great Stand Up Rod for Pin Rigging
I've used this rod for 2 years pin rigging. Has the back bone to fight anything you will hook. Despite a fair bit of abuse is has held up well.

Best standup rod for the money by far
I've long been a fan of the fast action of Ande graphite rod blanks more than any other brand all the way up through stock versions of Calstar and Seeker. I tried the 20-50 version of this years ago and found it far more toward the 20 lb class than the 50 and sold it and forgot about these rods again. Eventually it occurred to me to try out the 50-80 lb standup rod in case it was the elusive light fast action 50 lb standup rod I was looking for, as the MH version had been very much on the light side of its class. It did turn out to be exactly what I was looking for. A fast enough tip to be fun on any fish, yet a large amount of backbone lower in the rod (it will lift a 20 lb weight without turning into a U) if called upon. So far I've caught 135-150 lb striped marlin without problem on it fishing up to 18 lbs of drag, and am looking forward to trying it on a blue marlin when I get the chance once I put Makaira 15's on some. It's early days to see how the components hold up on these rods, but have never had trouble with Ande's yet, whereas inexpensive Penn, Jarvis Walker, and other brands I've used have all ended up literally coming unglued (spinning reel seats, gimbals, etc). If you're looking for a classic beefy 50-80, look somewhere else, but for a great light 50 that will be fun on anything from small tuna to nice marlin, this is a great choice.
ProsFast action tip, great taper Plenty of guides Lots of backbone for its weight Light
ConsNot a true 50-80 lb class rod if you're looking for one but I wasn't looking for one.

Excellent Rods
I've used these rods for bottom fishing for years now and have never had a problem with them. I've had everything from B liners to 70+ pound amberjacks on them with no issues. Clear coat hasn't chipped off or de laminated from the sunlight like I've had happen with other brands.

Does the job
Cost effective and get the job done. Trolls my umbrellas to spoons on planer well. Secures my reels on tight, especially with the dual locking nuts.
ConsMy older model has fatter butts then this newer model. Glad they fixed this as the fatter butt was difficult getting in and out of the out-rodder.

I like this rod...
I purchased this rod, though it was a 6'6" Medium Casting Rod w/ Gimbal, to pair with a Shimano Tekota 500. After buying the Tekota, I was on a slightly lower budget for a rod. Typically, I tend to steer towards St. Croix Rods. Not on the budget I was on. I then came across this rod. At first glance, I really did not think much about it. And I almost passed it up. Being right in my budget, power and action, I decided to buy it. Driving home, I almost turned around to bring it back. I thought that one through, and drove home. I first took this setup on a Sea Bass Trip. I brought my spare rod just in case the Ande did not work out. I was pleasantly surprised when hooking my first fish! This rod had incredible sensation. I could feel everything working on the other end of the rod, times 5. Then hooking a 3 lb Sea Bass, I had great control, a nice bend, and let the rod and reel do all of the work. Also, with the Tekota, it had very good balance as well, and light weight. Granted I did not have a monster on the end of my line. However, I did not think much of this rod at all at first. And now, I really liked it after hooking on fish! I used this rod for the rest of the night, and from that point on. It is now one of my favorite rods. The butt will fit into a fighting belt/chair also. Just be mindful of the butt cover. It comes off easily. I already lost and replaced mine. Not a big dollar replacement, just wanted to mention it. You can do a lot better than this rod, absolutely. However, based on the price, this rod is really not bad at all. Be well!
ProsGreat rod for the price Good balance light weight very good action
ConsButt cover comes off easily Based on price, this rod can easily be overlooked and under rated
