Bass Pro Shops Micro Lite Graphite Float 'n' Fly Spinning Rod
I was looking for a reasonably priced pink salmon rod for a while, and found this 9'6'' rod could be the one by its specs. Tried it on Fraser river, BC the next day after I got it. It's a perfect spinning rod for pink salmon. It is sensitive, lightweight, easy to cast and only half the price of my old S brand rod. With this rod, I landed 3 pink salmon between 4-6 pounds with ease on the first day of fishing. The downside, reel seat is a little bit loose and wish it has a hook keeper.

Great Light tackle Rod
Finnally a rod with action all the way to the base. This is a very long rod 9'6" and it allows very accurate casts to tailing redfish. I am using 10 pound line and throwing medium sized spoons but it also allows you to throw accurately plastic worms very accurately. This type of Rod has been very hard to find and I am extremly pleased with this one.

Best crappie rod I've purchased
Nice and lite which at 64 is an advantage. The eight foot size allows me easy casting to the 35 yard spot I find my best crappie with six lb. sensation line. My seven footers can reach the spot but takes a harder cast and the wind can stop it way short. Only thing I wish is that the top four eyes were cermatic instead of aluminum. Add the adjustable Shad net(up to six foot) and I'm good for 14 inch plus fish at that four foot high bank.I purchased one for fixed bobber and jig and a month later purchsed another for bobber and minnows.Only drawback is you don't use it under trees since you need ten feet of clearance.

Excellent slip bobber rod
I use this 8'6" rod paired with a 2000-sized Daiwa reel and #6 mono for fishing slip-bobbers for both crappies and walleyes (for crappies, I'll then add a #4 flouro leader tied to a swivel). The long length lets you cast much further and it is able to take up a ton of slack on hooksets. The action and power rating of this rod is also absolutely perfect for fishing this technique. You also don't need/want and expensive higher graphite blank for this technique because the bobber is the strike indicator (sensitivity isn't as crucial as with jig fishing for example). Would not change a thing and could not be happier!!
