Bass Pro Shops® 3' Graphite Series Spinning Rod
A Great Find!
I wanted a quality spinning rod that was about 3' long, and which was not an ultralight or kid's rod. The typical 24" ice fishing rods were too short for me.
I looked for this type of rod from MANY sources and Bass Pro is the only place that has it. I was surprised at how inexpensive it is.
I saw the other reviews about rods breaking and I think they just got defective products. When I got mine, I bent it in different directions to see if it would snap easily and it didn't. I've caught fish with this rod and it is great.
My only complaint is that one of my reels (a really old Daiwa) doesn't fit on the rod really well. But another reel fits on with no issues. The problem is that in the reel seat, there is a small raised "Bass Pro" emblem. It's covered when you put a reel on the rod. That emblem is raised just enough to keep my reel from being seated very securely. So far, I've caught fish with this reel and rod, and my reel hasn't fallen off. But it may be the source of problems later if the reel seat screw portion loosens up.
I am very happy with this rod and would definitely buy it again. Worse case scenario, I will just use a different reel with this rod.

It is a really cheap rod. Do not put a bend on it or it will snap. It is graphite and alright but still don't bend it.

This is the perfect urban "Recon Rod". I keep the rod paired with a Quantum PT10 reel and #8 line behind the seat of my truck with a small tackel bag. I hit community park lakes/ponds when I spot them driving around, and it always ends up in the golf bag. I have caught numerous sun fish, smaller bass, a few 1-3 lb. catfish and bass. The Rod has held up great after consideralbe abuse by me and the fish I've caught.

Any spinning reel will work fine, I have used a Pflueger Supreme & Pflueger Medalist with it and I currently have it rigged using a Mitchell 300XE with 12 lb test. The lighter test line you use the further it will cast. I have used it with 8 lb test as well, it worked great for me.
Longer rods allow for longer casts. Also, this is a fairly rigid graphite rod that doesn't add much of the "slingshot" effect to casts. Having said that, a small diameter, QUALITY fishing line will make a BIG difference in casting distances. As will heavier lures. I can cast plastic topwaters and small spinners a country mile with this rod! I have caught bass just short of 5 pounds on these rods...no problem. Use a decent quality reel with a smooth, consistent drag. Combined with some of these excellent new superlines, you should have no problem landing bass.
I have caught many bass using this fishing rod, I love this rod its great for kayak fishing. I was going through a narrow area recently at a pretty good speed and the tip of my rod got caught on the bank and almost bent the rod in half, I thought it would break but it didn't. I caught the bass you see pictured here (and many others) with this rod. As far as casting goes, that will depend on the line that you use and the weight of your lure. When I use ultralight lures like the Rebel Bumble Bug I'm generally fishing around overhanging brush and trees maybe throwing the lure 10 yards or less on 8 lb test. When I throw crankbaits I get much more distance, again depending on the weight of the lure, choice of line and wind conditions probably in the 25 yard to 35 yard range, I hope this helps.
