Rated 3.9 out of 5★ by 9reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by 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 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
Rated 4 out of 5★ by 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 Very weak rod I have purchased three of these rods. All were 6'6" Medium Action rods. At first sight, they seemed to be good rods. I used them to primarily bass fish. The first one broke on my third hook set. I still got the fish, and it only weighed 3 lbs. I returned it and got another one, and the same thing happened. I decided to try it one more time, and on the first fish, I set the hook and the rod snapped again. This rod is not worth anything if you try to catch anything above a minnow. 08/17/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★ by easy to handle 7 ft rod Easy to cast -- two piece for carrying in limited space -- well balanced to hold -- my second one (the first developed a split in the tip's line guide that was shredding the line) and I was happy to be able to find the exact replacement rod. I use it about 5 times a week, so it holds up well to frequent exposure to the elements. 09/23/2014
Rated 1 out of 5★ by 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 5 out of 5★ by its ideal for lighttackel it does every thing ok for light tackle.with a 2000 shimano.peewee 07/06/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Good value rod I prefer a 6.6' fishing rod and this one had performed well for my needs. The value is hard to beat so I've now got one for each of my reels. I typically do light fishing in local rivers with 6lb line and the rods sensitivity and stiffness has worked well. Be careful because the two piece version of this rod seems to be crushed a little lore easily than others when it's broken down for carrying. 06/06/2014
