Rated 5 out of 5 by Cowboy1421 Best Fishing Rod Ever
This is the one! All my life I have used whatever fishing rod happened to come my way, through rummage sales, family members buying me something for Christmas, etc.
This is the first time I have ever intentionally sat down to consider the kind of pole I need: what type of cover I throw in to, what obstructions there are around me, what type of lure I most frequently use, and (honestly!) how big the fish are that I usually catch.
After a lot of reading, I chose the model ML70LS-2, 7 foot "light" Micro Lite. It has simply surpassed all of my expectations. It has the right amount of flex at the tip to throw a small lure (1/16-1/8 oz.) a good distance. It also has enough back bone--I think!--to wrestle in a larger fish than I normally catch. The cork handles are wonderful. The number and configuration of guides assures long and accurate casts.
I paired this with a Pfleuger President reel, the 6925, also ordered from BPS, and I could not have chosen a better combination!

I received the item and it was as I had thought. It has good cast-ability and yet strong. It works well with the reel purchased for lite tackle fishing and at a fair price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by deke1 great bang for the buck.
i needed a 2 piece rod for a backpacking trout fishing trip. tied to my pack for 50 brutal miles the rod never broke. (despite my best efforts to walk under every low hanging branch).
catching and landing fish..perfect. casting small lures? no problem. sometimes when i had a larger trout, i could feel the rod shaft shifting inside the handle. not a real issue.
oh. you have to keep tabs on the reel screw. sometimes it came loose and had to be retightened. the locking nut was not that effective. and pay attention to where the rod parts connect. not too tight, not too loose.
i give it a respectable 4 stars.
