The quality is apparent


For a $150 fishing rod, you’ll certainly be impressed by the obvious quality of this rod so don’t let the affordable price tag fool you. Some of the features include stainless steel guides with Zirconium inserts, cork and high-density EVA grips, and a Fuji reel seat.

I’ve swung some fish into the boat that I probably shouldn’t have while testing this rod and the rod gave no indication that it couldn’t handle the extra stress. You won’t hear any snaps, crackles or pops when it’s under a load and I think you know what I’m saying when I say that it simply feels solid.
