Rated 5 out of 5 by harts Amazing!!! Purchased the 7'2" medium, fast action to go with my Stradic Ci4 4000. Worked great in salt water on big reds and perfect for largemouths on swim baits. Rod is ultra light and very sensitive. Easily handled a 15lb red. April 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by pmill06 4.5 lb Bass in less than 1 hour after purchase The fishing gods were looking out for me today. Just picked up my new J.Morris series II rod today paired with a PQ "H" Spinning reel. Stopped by a local clear water lake on the way home. Landed a 4.5 lb LG bass on my third cast on a drop shot rig. Because this is the first time I used the rod I was not sure what to expect, heck I only has the rod for an hour. But I like it, The rod handled this bass smoothly, the rod is extremely light and brought my first 4 lb bass of the year in with no problem. Can't wait to use it a lot more for lake and California Delta bass fishing in Northern Califonia this spring and summer. February 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by jprathead Great rod Owned one previously and it was my favorite rod until someone sat on it while striper fishing in the spring and broke two inches off of the end of it. Got it fixed, but it never was the same so I ordered another one. This rod is better than the other. You can't beat this for the price. I have owned rods that cost two to three times as much and they were no better. I use mine mainly for a worm rod, but have hauled in fifteen pound stripers on it also. Very sensitive also. I can tell if there is a piece of pine straw on my worm when working it. October 15, 2012

A:The advantage for the K series alconite guides compared to the Fuji titanium frame SIC guides used on the original Johnny Morris series rods is that the K series guides are more tangle free -- especially when fishing with one of the newer super braid lines. Alconites also cost less -- keeping overall rod cost down.
Both titanium frame SIC guides and recoil guides flex better which can be an advantage, and SIC guides are harder than alconite guides.
The titanium framed SiC guides that were on last years model were much better but they also cost more so I'm sure BPS went to stainless steel framed alconite guides to save money.
FYI: The rod price is lower this year and the cheaper guides probably play a big part in that.
