Bass Pro Shops Micro Lite Graphite Spinning Rod
Was looking for a lightweight rod to use on our fishing trip to the Eastern Sierra's for catching trout. I needed something that had some length, 7'6"...(certain techniques we use for Rainbows, Browns, Spotted's, & Brooks have to have a spinning rod similar to that of a fly rod; can't use a 4'6" - 6' rod.) The Micro Lite was an awesome purchase! It performed exceptionally well, whether it be in creeks, rivers, or lakes. I reccomend this rod to anyone who wants quality for an affordable price.

outstanding ultralight rod !
Great backbone for an ultralight rod. Great sensitivity all the way down to the rod seat.

light weight rod
this is a very light weight ultra llight fishing rod. It seems to be a very sensitive and strong rod. The cork handles are very smooth and well built. the only thing that I'm not sure about are the guides they dont have ceramic inserts and seem to be just stainless inserts. I have four of the older micro-lite rods and I love them so i decided to buy some more while they where on sale. I use these rods for ultra-light trout fishing and I hope these new guides dont groove later on with light line . but I still think these rods are very nice .. despite the fact that they could use a hook keeper. but I am happy with the rods I bought and would buy again

Awesome bang for the buck!
I am a light tackle fisherman and fell in love with these Bass Pro offerings upon first sight. They are weightless in my hand and have great response. These fishing rods make it very effortless to decipher what is happening with your lure/bait. I own model ML66LS-2 and recently purchased another for the lady. I have mine matched with an Abu Garcia Cardinal 101 reel and have hauled in respectable size Channel catfish and Rainbow trout with this combination. I highly recommend ultra light/light fishermen to give these rods a try.
