I have several of these rods that I have purchased over the years. You can't beat em' !! Lightweight, sensitive, strong, durable. I love that they come with cork grips and quality guides. In my opinion, it's bang for the buck. Why spend hundreds more when you don't have to.
I recently purchased the Model: BNB76HT and fished with it maybe three times. I couldn't give it 5 stars because of what happened. After a few snags and one line break I had to thread the line back through the guides. Went through the tip and was pulling line off the reel and pulling the excess out so that I could re-tie a new lure. There was hardly any bend in the rod but I suddenly heard not one but two cracks. I was left with a three piece rod and my mouth wide open.
I think and hope that this is a one time occurrence and it will not deter me from buying this brand from BPS again. The rod was returned for a new replacement at no charge and no shipping costs. Bass Pro Shops is a company that stands behind their products and their name.

i have 2 of these, a medium action 6' with a Garcia 5500C3 for spinner baits and crank baits, and a Medium Heavy 6' with a Garcia 4600C3 for plastics and jigs... i have other rod combos with shimano and other Garcia reels,,,but these are my go to rods. you can feel the bite and they have plenty of backbone. hauled in an 8 pound largemouth with the 4600 med heavy combo at Wapapella Lake in Missouri several years ago and it still is catching fish...

I bought one of these rods on the way to Guntersville because I wanted something cheap to sling an A-rig with. I have used this rod for 9 months and I am extremely happy with it. I have caught a couple of hundred fish with it throwing an A-rig, mostly 3-7lb stripers and hybrids. I could not believe that I would be this satisfied with a lower priced rod. I would buy another one in a heartbeat, and I usually only fish Dobyns and Kistler rods.
