I’ve always said the fishing rod part of the fishing tackle industry is an odd duck. If you make a great rod at $70, it goes on the discontinued list quickly because guys won’t buy it, figuring if it’s $70, it’s just a cheap rod. So you have to add enough features to a budget rod to get guys to buy into its quality. This rod is priced well with a lot of thought put into the combinations of materials, actions, powers and tapers.
The lengths are right. I like that the rods have a little more backbone but still maintain sensitivity.
