Why call them Extreme? The word “Extreme” is somewhat overused these days, so with these rods, we’ve tried to stay true to the official definition, which is (according to Webster’s Dictionary) “exceeding the ordinary, usual, or expected.” We have packed every possible ultra-high-end feature into the strongest, most profoundly sensitive package, and still kept your investment under $100!
Here’s what you get: We start out with an immensely powerful yet feather-light 60-million-modulus Powerwall IM9 graphite blank, then wrap the butt section with a new diamond weave carbon fiber to enhance lifting power. We top the blank with virtually frictionless, mirror-polished Fuji aluminum oxide guides, and we finish the blank with the most durable clear-coat available. The grips are turned from ultra-premium-grade cork, with our exclusive PowerHump handle to aid in balance and enhance fish-turning power. The full-contact, Soft Touch reel seat puts your fingers directly on the blank so you can feel even the softest bite. The result is a fishing rod that is farthest removed from the ordinary, that is anything but the usual suspect, and that far exceeds what you expect from a rod at this price point. By definition, these rods truly are extreme! Three piece travel rods include cordura covered travel case and nylon rod sock.PowerHump Handles:
Our specially contoured, premium cork handle design gives you enhanced leverage and an increased sense of confidence during the battle!Fuji Aluminum Oxide Guides:
Polished to a mirror-like, friction-free finish. Extremely durable; precisely spaced for perfect line flow.Full Contact Soft Touch Reel Seat:
Lightweight, rock-solid reel seat locks your reel in place, and the blank-thru construction puts your fingers in direct contact with the blank for the utmost vibration transmission.

by yellowgoldwing Very sorry to report 7' medium Extreme spinning
I own two Bass Pro Extreme spinning rods nearly 20 years old. I couldn't be happier with these rods. Since they have performed so well over the years, I asked my wife to buy me a new one for a Christmas present 2013 which she did. On the first trip out on March 2014, the last 4" of the rod tip broke on the 2nd smallmouth I caught. Bass Pro promptly replaced the rod hassle-free. This past Saturday on Memorial weekend, I was once again smallmouth fishing the New River in Virginia. Again, on the 2nd smallmouth caught, the rod tip of the newly replaced rod broke in the same identical place. I do not know what is going on with this current batch of Extreme spinning rods, but I find it more than just a coincidence that 2/2 7' medium action spinning rods broke in the same identical place the first time each rod was used. Something going on with these new batch of Extreme rods regarding quality control or something. Something definitely amiss....I am very sorry to report this, but I thought Bass Pro and customers should know.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tobolamr Surprise Find in this Rod
As I've said in prior posts - I usually stay away from stuff with store's names on it. My jig rod broke last season, so I needed a new one, and this had all the features I was looking for - and a price I couldn't pass up. I've got the 7'6" with Extra Fast tip & E handle, and I'm very pleased with it so far.
I have not noticed a huge difference in casting difference so far, but I had to re-spool the reel and haven't fished it since.
I HAVE noticed it is MUCH easier to pitch and flip with this rod than my last 6'6". I also find hooksets to be a little more effortless. And I really like the extra length because it lets me drag the jig along the bottom or along structure nice and slow and feel every little bump and drop.
I'm really surprised by this rod, and I'm really glad I'm surprised. Definitely a good rod to branch out with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JJEA power hump cork handle
Love the grip on the BPS rods. I've got fairly large hands and the size of the cork with the power hump are perfect for my grip and very comfortable and controlling. Like the rods much better than the more expensive other brands.
Only improvement I could see is the addition of a series of BPS bait casters with MICRO GUIDES< that would be a nice alternative option>

I really like this rod , it light, sensitive and I personally prefer a cork handle. I would like to see BPS reduce the width of the handle , the BPS Power Hump concept makes the handle a little bulky, don't get me wrong the rod is still great but it could be even better with a thinner cork handle.
