  • 85 million modulus carbon fiber blank
  • Pac Bay DLC stainless steel framed guides
  • Works great with mono, fluoro, or superlines
  • Almost weightless space-age P-Tec polyfoam grips
  • Two-piece Soft Touch reel seat with maximum blank exposure
The featherweight 85 million modulus carbon fiber blank provides the ultimate combination of extreme power and mind-blowing sensitivity. Features featherlight, stealth-black, Pac Bay DLC stainless steel-frame guides with super-hard titanium-carbide inserts and a unique PVD (physical vapor deposition) coating to make them extra-slick and damage-resistant. Ideal for traditional monofilament or modern superline braids! Ultra-lightweight two-piece P-Tec polyfoam grips with plenty of blank exposure so you can feel the lightest pick-ups; super-light two-piece Soft Touch reel seat with max blank contact. The bottom line with these rods is this: you’ve never held a spinning rod so light, and you’ll be so amazed by the way it performs, you won’t want to stop fishing with it. Try one today!
Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 145 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Purchase I loved the trimness of holding the rod which is very comfortable since I don't have basketball player's huge hands. As sensitive as the rod is claimed to be, engineering refuses you to have any contact with the rod itself. The reel seats on a metal ring and a handle cushion, whereas reel floats off the rod without making contact with the carbon rod. No part of hand or fingers make contact with the rod either. I don't understand why, after all these years, all the feedback, & all the engineering, hand contact with the carbonlite rod is still refused. I was hoping that a reel, carbon leg, connected immediately to the carbon rod would be achieved. Maybe in another 50 years engineering will stumble into that important aspect. All the hoopla written about the sensitivity of the rod fires you up but when you receive it, it's still the ole' same ole, same ole. No hand contact with the rod. October 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by favorite rod i have had this pole for over a year and is my primary bass rod, 6'6 medium paired with a pflueger supreme 8230mg great combo and very light weight. great sensitivity and cast far, one of the lightest rods ive found. would recommend this setup to anybody. September 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great rod - compared to about everything I'm the last in my group to own one of these. I've heard they are great for some time now but I always seemed to stick with the Loomis GL2 - GL3 or St Croix Premier. I bought the 6'6" MH Fast, and figured I'd save $100 and could return if I didn't like it. In a word, it's Impressive. It's very light, balances well and every bit as sensitive as the Loomis of St Croix. I've used it 2 days in a row throwing EVERYTHING (rubber worm, frog and jig) all worked great. I'm keeping this rod, well done Johnny Morris.. August 31, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by 3 months later... I bought a 7ft rod for better and further casting on bigger lakes. This rod was awesome until 3 months into using it, it snapped in half on a 2lbs rainbow trout. I take care of my fishing gear and can't understand how it broke. It must've been the strongest 2lbs trout in the world. I would definitely never buying this rod again. August 24, 2014

A: 
The difference to me, is the length of the handle. The extra length can work for you if you're flipping, or Carolina rig, fishing. If you're casting lures at targets all day, I want the shortest handle available. The long handles will definitely get in the way & hinder your casting.

A: 
I believe it's simply the length, based upon rod length and intended use (i.e. longer on longer, heavier rods). It's accomplished mainly via how much rod blank is visible between the grips.

each handle is progressively bigger for example, handle A is the shortest and handle E is the longest.. there is a picture, while looking at the carbonlite rods, that shows all of the handles with ruler showing the different lengths.

I was wondering if anyone has fished 3/4 oz. lipless crankbaits (or other lures of the same weight) on this rod and if so how it has hadled them. I currently have a MH Tourney Special and the MH power rating is the same as this rod. On the Tourney Special I can throw 3/4 oz. lipless crankbaits without putting much stress on the rod and land largemouth bass up to 5 lbs. I am interested in upgrading to this rod paired with a shimano stradic FJ 3000 and 10 lb. test berkely xt as an "all around" spinning setup.

I have fished 3/4oz lipless crankbaits, top water raps, drop shot rigs, carolina rigs and just about every weight of spinnerbait in my magnum box. I coupled this rod with a "Quantum Smoke PT 25 spinning reel and have had no trouble chunking braid line into tough cover. Your upgrade should be no problem for this rod.

I'm using exactly the same setup pairing two of these rods with Stradic FJ 3000s for redfish, trout and flounder in coastal Carolina. Two days ago, we were casting Mirrolure 17s along the intracoastal waterway, and the rods performed just great. I am using 20 lb Power Pro on them.

Would be a very good set up. I had the same combination until I discovered how well a MH Carbonlite worked with a #40 Johnny Morris Sinature Series reel for heavier baits. Can't go wrong either way. Rod has plenty of backbone for larger fish and toss big baits.

5'6 ultralight question?

Details: 
I just bought one, and is it just me or is the guide, the one next to the reel seat, oversized or something for this model? I put a picture for reference! It doesn't look proportionate to the other guide compared to other rods i saw at bass pro, It looks like a guide they would use on a 7' foot rod.

The oversized first guide is designed for wider spools to keep line flowing smoothly and increase casting distance. But yes...it looks odd. Great design feature though. Match it with a JM Signature series reel and cast a mile

The rod has more casting ability, so it needs a larger guide to allow the line to disburse properly. My 6'6" rod casts better than my 7' and 7'6" Gloomis

I own one of them medium power. Very satisfied with that one, I use braid on it for deep fishing and mono for finesse and weightless applications... Never had any problem, even when I caught a 25 lbs carp on it while I was jigging for bass with braided line on the reel... The guides look very thin but they are good quality.

i have the 7'2" medium FAST ACTION rod, the longer handle allows me to whip the bait, i skip fluke jerk baits under docks with the carbonlite. just make sure you get a fast action, when just the tip bends, it acts like a sling shot. the longer rods cast farther and faster for me so they skip my plastic bait well.
