Rated 5 out of 5★ by ohiobassfisherman Hard to believe this is only $15, great surf rod. First let me preface this by saying I bought this as a throw away to take to Florida. I had taken all this heavy surf gear the year before and found that on the gulf side, you really don't need it. I put a Spirex 4000 on it with 15lbs. braid. The rod performed flawlessly, handled the snapper, flounder, redfish, snook with no problem. I wasn't expecting much for $15 so I was pleasantly surprised. I take several of these with me now, I leave my expensive bass rods at home. Beach fishing is relaxed, and you can relax knowing that no one is stealing your $400 G Loomis rod while you are out wading!! 02/15/2012
Rated 4 out of 5★ by DJ44 Great value This is a good rod for light tackle fishing. Excellent value for a 7' two piece medium action rod, just $15. 06/12/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★ by TomLeo Don't waste your money I bought this 2 days ago, and the rod looks great, but is cheaply made and very fragile for a graphite rod. I caught a fish this morning, well within the capabilities of the rod as specced, and the rod broke in 2 places. I'm going to be at Walmart in the morning, and exchange it, since I can't find the receipt for a cash refund, but upgrade to the Ugly stick, specifically. 07/05/2013
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Blair55 Very good rod for Gulf flats fishing I have used this model rod for over 10 years for redfish and trout fishing on the Gulf coast flats and own at least 8 of them. It is sturdy and the guides hold up well. It has enough strength to pop a cork and play a big redfish and enough flexibility to cast a lure well. I don't rinse my rods after salt water use and after 6-7 years some of the cages holding the stainless steel insert corrode and release the insert. If someone steps on it or closes a car door on it you haven't lost $100. The mechanism to attach the reel foot to the rod will not corrode and works as well in a 10 year old rod as in a new one. The only weakness is a design change about 2 years ago which prevents Penn spinning reels from seating in the rear slot. I was able to use my Dremel tool burr to carve the slot out and make the Penn reel foot fit. It is very durable and a great rod and I recommend it without reservation. 07/30/2013
