When the fish have lockjaw and you really have to work for every bite, this is your rod. We took our popular CarbonLite™ Original Trigger Rod and shot its sensitivity right through the roof! We've replaced the original guideset with extreme-high tech Pac Bay micro guides--11 perfectly-calibrated, stainless steel guides plus tiptop, all with hard Hialoy inserts. These tiny guides precisely focus the flow of your line, eliminating slap and greatly increasing vibration transmission. And with all possible excess weight trimmed away, you get an almost superhuman sense of feel. So if that fish so much as breathes on your bait ... Give it a try!

Guides are too fragile! Before I had a chance to use my rod, I noticed a guide insert was missing. I exchanged it for another assuming it was a defect in manufacturing. Got the same model again. I used it 3 times in a year. During my last outing, I casted and noticed the guide insert spinning on my line. The guides also bend easily. I use a rod sock and store it in a rod holder in my house. I take very good care of my equipment. I own several other BPS rods and like them all, except this one...

I cast out the first time, the lure started gently coming through the weeds and 'snap' the rod fails on the first cast. Will have to put the time and effort into a return, but not looking forward to having to do this.
Will not buy this again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by dha0714 Less than a year old and two guides have busted
I purchased the 6'6" Med-Hvy Carbonlite Micro Guide earlier this year and, though I like the feel of the rod, it just hasn't held up. Two guides have busted so far in the mere months of weekend only use, and I really have no idea how, as I'm extremely careful with all of my equipment. In comparison, the Carbonlite without Micro Guides is wonderful...no problems whatsoever and I've been using it as long or for even longer. One last FYI: I've been fishing for 40 years or more and this is THE first time I've ever had a real complaint about a fishing rod I've purchased.

I have two of the 6'6" Micro Guides and love the weightlessness of them due to arthritis in my wrists. I can fish all day with these and my 50 shimano's. I only wish they made a 6'8" med action to give it a little bit more spring.
