Clearance starting at:
Our advanced process combines graphite with fiberglass for superior flexibility and strength. Sensitive enough to detect light nibbles; accurate enough for long casts with full control. Lightweight design for easy all-day use. Ideal for light angling, especially for crappie and panfish, but ready to go toe-to-toe with those big bass and walleye, too! We've probably priced them too low--because these rods not only look great, they fish better than many rods costing twice as much. Fly rod has one ceramic stripper guide and wire snake guides. Equipped with comfy EVA foam grips and smooth ceramic line guides.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mjkirshner Nice rod, but not really a 7/8
I bought this rod for kayak fishing, as I have had rods fall overboard and didn't want to risk one of my more expensive ones. It casts surprisingly well, but I found that it casts a 9 wt bonefish line better than 7 or 8 wt lines. It is also very top-heavy, so a larger reel with heavier line balances it a little better, but even with the 9 wt line, it is top-heavy. I wouldn't want to cast all day with it, but I am planning to use it for kayak and surf fishing, and won't be casting it for many hours at a time. The reel seat and foam grip look cheap, but for the price, I wouldn't expect more. Overall, it seems very functional and sturdy. I wouldn't want it as a main rod, but for a situation where it might get some abuse, it seems like a good choice. I would recommend it as a starter rod, but only the 5/6 because it probably is more like a 6/7.

I bought two of these rods in eight and nine foot lengths. These are perfect for my intended application which is slow trolling with lead line or other conventional heavy sink fly line. I wanted a knock around rod that would take a little punishment but be dirt cheap. No tears would be shed if they got a scrape. Heavy and utilitarian at a bargain basement price.
