Tackle big fish like catfish, striper, and largemouth bass. These Bass Pro Shops® Power Plus™ Trophy Class Spinning Rods have plenty of backbone and muscle, yet without large diameters and weight. The secret is in the unidirectional fiberglass construction that eliminates the layering normally found in fiberglass rods. This process also adds flexibility, eliminating premature breakage and stress on the wrist. Features an extended EVA foam handle, for extra power and fighting leverage, that easily fits in rod holders, heavy-duty double foot aluminum oxide guides, hook keeper for pre-rigging and sensitive graphite reel seat.

Good for the Price
I got the 6' 6" rod and i'm kind of kicking myself for not getting the 7" but such is life. It has pretty stiff action and sometimes is a little awkward casting because the line seems to run out a little funny when i use braided but works fine with mono. Could be because my reel is a little oversized for it but this is just my experience. I waited till a caught a fish to write this and I pulled in a decent sized steely (28") from lake ontario and it performed perfectly well. I wish I would have gotten the seven footer though, 6' 6" isn't optimal for great lakes fishing but it got the job done so i'm going to stick with it. definately recommended if this is an option in your budget range

I ordered this rod online because I was looking for a 7'6" bass rod. What I received was a surf rod. This rod is not at all good for large mouth bass like the description read. It is bigger, and thicker than the rod I use for sturgeon. Other than the fact it's no good for what I bought it for it is a good rod. I'd recommend it to anybody who's gonna do some bay fishing. Just keep in mind the item description is way off.

Good rod for heavy and medium heavy
Responisible for catfish 44#, 48# and 56 lbs and many, many smaller cats. Own (4) and they have never let me down. Don't plan on the pole flip to help your cast. Pretty stiff, which enables control on larger fish but requires more body in your cast.

Very decent rod!
bought the 6'6 Medium Heavy a while back for fishing in the Florida Back Country waters and it held up really nicely my first trip when I caught an 8 pound Bluefin Tuna in the deep water and a 10 pound Gag Grouper. I also ended up catching a lot of pan fish, and was very surprised on how sensitive it was for a fiberglass rod this heavy. I also use it for Catfishing back in Texas, haven't landed any substantially sized cats or carp, but this is definitely a great rod for the price!

I would say a Ugly Stik regular or Ugly Stik Lite, in about 5 1/2 ft. They are very reasonably priced and you can't kill them. Best idea would be to go to a Bass Pro store and feel them. You don't want to over-rod a youngster, but with this type rod they will be able to use it for a good while as they grow.
