If you're looking for a 2 piece, well made with high end components rod with a no questions asked warranty look no farther. I bought two of these and I am very happy with them.

Very Stout Rod, yet Very Versatile
January 18, 2020
I bought the 8’ 801-2 model, and let me tell you, everything about this rod is STOUT.

I have it rigged up with a ultra lightweight (for its size) Daiwa Ballistic 6k, and it is a wonderful rod for live or cut bait fishing.

I’ve also used it to jig 1-2 oz spoons and such, and it’s worked very well for that, as well.

The guides are oversized, so if you’re not into tying smaller leader-to-line knots like FG or the Alberto, or if you’re kayak fishing where those can be a bit of a pain, then this rod could serve you nicely as well.

I’m not sure if everyone doesn’t like the style of the reel seat or what, but I’ve found that this is literally only one of two different rods I own where I don’t have to constantly snug up the reel... so there’s that.*

*If you’re wondering, the other rod is a high-end Star VPR for inshore fishing.
ProsRugged design Two piece allows for easy transport Oversized guides Reel seat holds its tightness
ConsIt?s not actually a con, but, as with any rod, make sure you check the recommended lure weight for the rod you?re purchasing and match that to your application. If you?re trying to throw 1/16th oz or even 1/8? oz jig heads with this... it?s not going to perform well, because it?s not designed to work with something that light.
Reel seat could be better

Great rod and perfect action for my applications. Reel seat creaks. Only complaint.
