Great rod

I've owned one of these rods for at least the past 6 season. I've caught hundreds if not thousands of fish on it to 30+#s. Stars customer service is excellent and they stand by their warranty and their product which is important to me. I have thrown plugs close to 4 oz with it and had no problems
ProsGreat price Warranty and customer service excellent

Star Ariel rod
June 26, 2015
Got this rod with as a gift for father's day from my wife and kids along with a previously review Penn battle 2 5000 reel. The rod is very well made. I chose this rod based on my experience with my star Ariel 11 foot surf rod. This rod loads smoothly and casts very well. Have not thrown anything heavy than 2 ounces with it so far but I feel that it can handle it's rated range. Only gave it a 4 star rating due to the fact I haven't thrown heavier lures with it and only caught a 20 striped Bass with it.
ProsLite and well balanced
ConsNone so far.

Great entry level rod!

Very good rod if you are just starting out, or need a backup. I got one for myself, and one for my nephew, both paired with Penn Battle reels and the are great, only complaint is they are heavier than you would expect for nine foot sticks.

Are these rods made in USA?
1 Answer
All of the Aerial series rods are made in China. Star ships many of the components for the Aerial rods to China for manufacturing. This consists of blanks, Aftco parts, thread and a few other items. The Aerial line of rods is the only model by Star that are made in China. It is a mid-price rod of nice quality. Every other rod by Star is produced and manufactured in Miami, FL and/or Morehead City, NC.
