I have been using the Tourney Special one piece 6'6" for years.Several other sizes too, including my bait caster. I fished many a tournament with them. I never checked the description for the newer version and when I opened the tube and saw the new handle I was mad because I thought I ordered wrong. The new version is ugly and poorly balanced. The guides are cheaper too. Bring back the old version at a higher price if you need to, I am not a fan.

This used to be one of the best values in a reliable rod but this new version is a loser. Like other reviewers have queried, where's the cork? Besides the poor balance the reel seat on the 7' I bought didn't line up with the first guide. It was a quarter turn off and I had to bend it into alignment. Fortunately it didn't damage the wrap or the glaze. I would have given a zero star rating but the lowest option was one; no more tourney specials for me.

I've bought ~30 of these rods thru the years taking many family member and kids fishing.. Great spinning and casting rods until you removed the cork grip. Totally changed the balance and feel of the rod.
Even my now adult son who grew up on Tourney rods and bought the new non cork handle ones, complained about them..He bought a different brand to replace them.. Please put it back on.. Change is not always better. Thanks

Rated 2 out of 5 by JLB63 Where's the cork?
I've used these rods for several years and was satisfied that they were a good value. They offered a good range of lengths and actions, they casted well, and sensitivity and strength were sufficient. Then the cork handle disappeared and was replaced with a knob on the end and a very small bit of rubber at the reel. Essentially, the new grip version is no grip at all. I actually bought one of these, and ended up wrapping the no-grip portion with bicycle handlebar tape. It's better than before, but the whole idea of no-grip is nonsense to anyone who is a fisherman. PLEASE bring back the cork!
