Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fishfan1 Perfect for all species The 9 '6" model is great for everything from Bluegills and Bonefish to Redfish and Carp. The light taper is sensitive to light bites and the strong butt allows me to land large fish as well. Long casts are key to reaching fish and this long rod really cast the lightest jigs (1/32oz) into the strike zone every time. At this price these rods are an amazing value. May 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by randwell Good rod at a good price i got this rod to go steelhead fishing. I have used it in the mean time for some local fishing trips (steelhead live 3 hours away in Cleveland). Rod had great feel. I wish I had bought the balancing kit. April 24, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by ragworm101 sweeeeeet I purchased this rod to replace a bastardized fly rod I was using. Think I might get an other in the future, for the price increadable action. Only used a couple of times since i got it couple days ago so I will have to see how it holds up. P.s. it looks real pretty. April 10, 2013

Details:looking for my first fly rod and i like the possibility of being able to switch between ul spinning and fly. just wondering if it would be better to get an actual fly rod. what do you think?
A:I have used this one for 13 yrs. and odered my 7th or 8th one this month. This is my go to Trout and crappie rod. I Dont leave home without it.
Details: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
A:A part of this is may be bait size, dull hook, or too large of line for sensitivity. I have antisipated strike as soon as bait hits the water holdin ros @ 9:30 or 10:00 making sure line has no slack
A:reel the slack out of the line and set the hook like there is no tommorow
A: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.
A:With 2-4 lbs. line absolutly
A:i use 4 lbs test with mine and it does great. you just flip the lure where you want it. i have the 9 6 version had the 8 6 and it did well too.
A:With my 8 footer I've cast a 1/32 oz jig 25 or 30 feet. With a weighted bobber I put a 1/32 oz jig or 1/16 oz jig 30 to 35 yards out.I surprized me a 1/32 oz jig could go so far.
A:Yes, the longer length allows for longer casts. The action is lighter and more spongy than your typical rod.
