Not so good!!
I just puchased the 7"2 foot spinning rod and made my first cast with it and it snapped in half right in the middle of the rod. My lure never made it to the water. So needless to say, very disappointing. I am going to get another one and hope this was just a defect. I will write again to let you know how it performs...

I bought two. The action is great for my Pflueger Presidents. And they look awesome. I really like the design and style. I would recommend them.

6'6" Med Fast Action
This rod casts a country mile. I usually fish my St. Croix Premier and this Carbonite outcasts it by a LONG SHOT. It's INCREDIBLY SENSITIVE & LIGHT but don't be fooled into thinking it doesn't have a solid backbone b/c it does.
For those whining about how it's fragile, I don't know what to tell you. I put mine through the ringer today and it performed exceptionally well.
I'm fishing my 6'6 Carbonite with a Pfleuger President reel and I couldn't be happier.
I would recommend the rod to anyone who wants a solid rod that's extremely sensitive, light, and can cast forever.

I wouldn't pay too much attention to the negative reviews of this rod snapping on the hookset. Just read the reviews on other 85 million modulus (IM9) graphite rods. They all have the same problem. Graphite makes them lightweight and brittle and if you score them like scoring sheetrock that little cut is the weak spot wear it breaks on the hookset or lifting a 2 pound fish into the boat. If you throw them in the bed of a truck with nails, screws, tool boxes etc and are ruff on rods buy an ugly stick, not these. If you like these more expensive graphite rods you need to baby them as much as possible because of the materials they are made of. Get a deep scratch that you may not see and chances are that's where it'll break. I use these rods for all kinds of fish. I have caught a 16lb. and several 10 to 12 lb. carps on these rods and have not had one break yet. If I get a pretty good nick on the rod, say the second or third eye down then I pretty much already know that's were it's going to break sometime soon on a hookset. Take care of these rods & be more careful and easy with them than you would your ugly sticks & you should get good service out of them. Mine are over a year old (4 of them) and not a broken one yet. Got one carp that would have gone 20 plus pounds but it broke me off when I tightened the drag down & tried to horse him in. Line broke not the rod. Graphite rods breaking is pretty common with about every brand there is and you can see it in the reviews. It's just the nature of the beast when it comes to graphite. Need bullet proof rods go with fiberglass first, composite second. This rod is a nice bang for the buck no ifs, ands, or buts about it. Anyone saying this rod is junk is just plain foolishness. My 4 have not given me a problem in the last 14 months I have had them.

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 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.
I was just wondering how well does it handle fireline original fused, I know it's titanium guides, but I was just wondering does it cut into the guides when your battling big large-mouth or trying to unsnag your lure?
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 a 6'6" mh with a plueger president 2000size and it works great for drop shotting. Also, i swap out the reel with the bps extreme 2000 with 20-30lb power pro, and i'm ready to fish the slop with topwater frogs. Its a good all around rod...one of the few true multi purpose rods
i have the mh and it has no problems with the slop. i use it %95 of the time fishing for snakehead in heavy cover and it works great..the crazy part about this rod is with a 3000 size reel and braid its a beast for frogging, then i throw on my plueger president 2000 with 8lb fluro and its great for drop shotting..its a very strong rod, yet sensitive enough for multiple applications
Just wanted to suggest that you may enjoy the video in the Outdoor Site Library with Wally Marshall "Shooting Docks with Mr. Crappie". His set up, of course, is for crappie, but he's got some tips that will translate for any species.
im thinking about buying a carbon lite but i still got some questions i must know before i make any purchases. i am looking for the shortest and most sensitive/flexible pole for the style i will be fishing. i need a pole that will be very sensitive for jigging but need something that will be able to chuck out crank baits and poppers and handle good size bass as well as trout, i was thinking of the 6'6" M, Fast or MH, Fast. if if anyone could tell me whether these would work out well or make other suggestions i would greatly appreciate it!
i use a medium lite for crankbaits/poppers on black bass and stripe/and reasonably sized catfish...also for trout . I do not use it for jigging. I would recommend the medium 6.6 to do it all..... the Medium heavy to me is too stout. I use shimano 3000 symetre reels on the two rods i have and am planning on buying two more carbonlites MH for my shimano 4000 reels for hybrids/rockfish and large cats...hope this helped...........
I have the 7' M. Great sensitivity for jigs. I use this rod for bass/pike, using jigs/spinners. The cranks work well also. Rod is smooth, so put a good reel on it to compliment it. Average to good size bass around here is 4-6 lbs. Handles them with ease. Good fishin!
