Rated 4 out of 5 by Turkeybuzzard45 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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by huntf150 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..

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.
