Great for the Price!
I was looking for a reasonably priced, long fishing rod to use on a boat and also for long casting from shore.I wanted to be able to fight fish of all sizes and be able to have some fun with them.This is a great rod.....everything I was looking for!

Perfect for the surf.
I purchased this rod to fish the surf in Southern California. I used it recently and caught several Barber Perch. The rod casted the light quarter ounces sinker with ease and the action on the rod made catching the fish a blast. I would recommend this rod to anyone planning of doing this type of fishing.

Float 'n' Fly
I have been using these rods for crappie for years now and still think they are the best on the market for jigging. The good thing about them is you can really catch any fresh water fish on these.

Love my 9'6"
The 9'6" version of this rod requires the "Heavy Action" balancer kit, (or 6.9 oz of weight) to balance it perfectly.
ADVANTAGES OF LENGTH: It allows me to crank the lure up the middle of a channel without getting too close, or pull the lure along the back-side of a fallen log, or hold the tip close to the water when standing on a high bank, or drop bait under a low-hanging branch from 10 feet away, or cast far out into the lake.
CONS OF LENGTH: The length makes this rod harder to rig and carry through the woods. An inexperienced fisherman would spend all day untangling things, but if you are use to dealing with fly rods or long poles this becomes a mute point.
MY EXPERIENCE: I haven't used this rod for Float 'n' Fly technique and I may never do so... I've been using it mostly with a 1/4oz inline spinner and 4lb mono to catch trout out of small streams. I've had it a month and I love it. Twice I've been out when the water was low and clear, and my companions weren't able to catch anything, but due solely to the length of this rod I've been able to reach into the right spots and pull out fish. For the money it can't be beat.

previously i had used this rod for float fishing for bream and it worked great. today i used it for bottom fishing the river for trout. it was sensitive enough to pick up the lightest nibble, but i had trouble setting the hook with it. i was holding it at 11 o'clock like i normally do with other rods, but i missed 3 fish
How deep were you fishing? Was there alot of slack in the line due to river current? Using Mono or Flourocarbon. If fishing deep, have a rod with some back bone this rod was not designed for real deep fishing. Take the slack out of your line before you try setting the hook. Use Flourocarbon it has less stretch and is more sensitive than Mono. If you don't change any of the above try holding rod at 9 o'clock or 9:30. This can give you uo to extra 60 degree of rod tip travel and may help you with your hook set.
