Nice light rod I got this as an extra ultralight rod to go with a new tinylight spinning reel l got and I like it. It's actually much more flexible than the other 5' UL rod that I have, so it has a really soft, quick action and it casts well. September 26, 2012
BEAST!!!!!!!!!!! THIS ROD IS LITE THE ROD TIP IS FLIMSY EVERY FISH FEELS LIKE A MONSTER BUT YOU WELL ALWAYS CATCH FISH WITH THIS August 9, 2012
Great Rod If you want to have some fun in fishing for panfish, perch or trout, you got to try this rod. Most fun I have had in fishing, liked it so much my fishing partner got one and we really enjoy catching panfish. The tip of the rod allows us to set the hook better and quicker. I have used this rod for jigging and the action with the jig is unbelieveable, it makes all the difference in making the fish bite, also used it with bobber and jig and again did not let me down. I liked the rod so much I purchased two more and rigged one for just jigging, and the other for use with a bobber and the 3rd for use with small, light weight crankbait for cappie. August 3, 2012
smart design - mediocre quality Graphite rods are lighter and more rigid than fiberglass rods and have pretty much taken over. Graphite rods, being more rigid and lighter, transmit the energy of a light strike much better than heavy, mushy, soft rods that absorb and dampen the energy. They let the fisherman feel what is going on at the end of his line. BUT - experienced fishermen know there are sometimes advantages to "glass" rods. That is where this rod shines. I purchased the 5' one-piece rod. It is a "slow" action design (the circumference from the tip of the rod increases very gradually (slowly) to the butt of the rod), making this a soft, whip-like rod that bows nicely down to the handle, almost like a fly rod. This is an excellent design for casting ultra-light and micro-light lures to panfish. On a steady retrieve, these lures tend to set the hooks themselves when the fish hit, making it irrelevant that these glass rods don't have the sensitivity of graphite. The slow action design of the blank combined with the softer fiberglass also make fighting smaller species of fish much more exciting (WAY FUN!). That is where this design is a superstar. I love my expensive graphite rods, but I still like a slow action glass rod for certain applications. I normally buy expensive custom made rods or top-of-the-line St. Croix rods. This is an excellent design for certain types of fishing and I would be willing to pay much more for a better quality version of this glass rod (better real seat, higher quality cork handle, better eyelets - okay Bass Pro Shop?). P.S. I haven't had any problems with very small diameter braided line sawing through the eyelets. It appears they use ceramic eyelets that are compatible with braided lines. July 9, 2012

This is NOT a fast action rod. It's is best described as medium slow to parabolic.

Graphite = fast-ish; Glass = slow-ish.

A: 
it's made of a type of fiberglass called E-glass. The longer rods can handle bigger bass and cats better than the short ones. I've caught a 5lb bass on the 7'6" model with 4lb test. All bets are off if there are thick weedbeds and/or timber in the area. The shorter rods can't put as much leverage on larger fish. And the longer rods still make medium sized bluegills feel like runaway trains. You won't be dissapointed in this rod as long as you realize it's a glass rod and not a graphite rod. It's not very sensitive, but it is the best rod for small hardbaits (cranks and topaters) with trebles.

I have yet to catch any large lake trout with this rod (because I have yet to try). But the stream trout seem to come in on it just as nicely as 6lb+ bass do so I do not know why it would not make a good rod for you.

A: 
The rod length all depends on where you fish. If you are like me, fishing narrow mountain streams with heavy foilage on either bank, the shorter the better. I use a 5'-5'6". But if you are in a wide open stream or lake, a 6'6" would benefit you. The longer the rod, the more precise your cast will be.

You might have trouble with really light weight flies, but weighted lures should be able to be cast easily.

A: 
The 7'6" rod is as ultralight as you can get. It does have at least 6 eyelets. The price is very awesome! If you're mainly buying it to fish panfish, and the occasional larger catch like an accidental LM bass, you can't go wrong with the UL model. If most of what you're looking to catch is bluegills, sunnies, crappies and perch, this is an excellent rod.
