Clearance starting at:
Tackle big fish like catfish, striper, and largemouth bass. These 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.

I'm a firm believer in you get what you pay for. For some reason, I relied on the BPS salesman and took his word for it, that this was the rod I needed. I purchased the 7'6" spinning model and was pleasantly surprised how well this rod worked on my trip to Kodiak, AK. I paired it with a Penn Battle 5000 with Power Pro 30lb braid. No trouble what so ever with 9-14lb coho and 5-9lb pinks. This combination muscled them all with aplomb. The two piece rod also made it easier for the flights getting there. I would recommend this rod assuredly.

recently went on a trip to the tropics,took the 7'6"model.it performed well under the rough fishing conditions;catching medium sized snook(robalo)with 1/4 oz swim-baits.it takes muscle to yank the fish out from under the mangrove roots.the rod is not the most sensitive,but had ample strength.I even accidentally whacked it once on the ceiling fan,and nothing happened.will use it again on my next trip.

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
