  • Feather-light 60-million-modulus Powerwall™ IM9 graphite blank
  • Diamond weave carbon fiber wrapped butt section
  • Fuji® aluminum oxide guides
  • Durable clear-coat finish
  • Ultra-premium-grade cork grips
  • PowerHump® handle
  • Full-contact, Soft Touch reel seat
  • Available in travel rod model
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.
Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good rod Got the 7' MH rod on sale for flippin'. Very light rod; much lighter than the bionic blades, and much more sensitive. June 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice Rod A very nice fishing rod. I matched it up with an Okuma Stratus 35. wound with Fireline. It worked well with spinnerbaits and Texas rigged lizards on Susquehanna River (PA) smallies. From crankbaits to jig-n-pig, this rod had a great feel and good sensitivity. I would recommend this rod for a nice all around piece of equipment June 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good rod. As an avid fisherman in rivers and streams I have had many different rods over 40 plus years.This rod here is the best so far.I am picking up on the bites on my tube jigs that I have not felt before.My catches have increased with this purchase. June 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Used Extreme Rods for decades I have used extreme rods for over a decade now. The 5ft 9in version I had before I made my recent purchase worked great and I used it for seven years. I had another one before that but the tip broke when a friend of mine closed the car trunk on it. I still have the second 5ft 9in version, but just wanted a 6ft 6in version. The sales price was right this year so I bought it. I already knew the Extreme rods are very sensitive and last a long time. I am very happy with my new rod and hope to get another 5 to 10 years out of this one also. April 29, 2013

I tend to fish on the pier of texas city and galveston's seawolf pier and i was just wondering about this rod's durability and how well would it handle medium sized reds and everything else you might catch from the piers? I was thinking of using it with the Penn® Fierce™ Saltwater Spinning Reels FRC4000 with braid line. Will a 15 lb test line with a 20 lb flurocarbon line be fine?

A: 
Not at all. 6'6" ML is definitely the right model for the dropshot technique. It would also work well for a split-shot rig, which can be just as deadly as the shaky head rig.

For lighter crankbaits, however, I would highly recommend the 7' ML BPS Crankin' Stick (baitcast rod). I'm talking about baits weighing between 1/8 oz. and 3/8 oz.; they do make lighter crankbaits (e.g., 1/16 oz.), but those are usually designed for species of fish other than bass. The added length helps you toss those lighter lures further, and the Crankin' stick is specifically engineered for the job (blend of various materials besides just graphite). Plus, they usually go on sale several times each year for $60. Tight lines!

This rod is excellent for bass. My recomendation is to use lighter line, 6lb-8lb during the cool-cold months and heavier line, 8lb-10lb during the warmer months. To give you an idea I caught a 10lb stripper on 8lb , using the same rod you have. See pic

The older models with the solid cork handle have an unscrewable butt cap, but the new, split handle models don't.

A: 
I have this rod and have a Daiwa Exceller 2500 reel on it. The reel is the older model; 4.7:1 gear ratio so it has plenty of torque. This rod is made to throw heavier baits so I would suggest a reel with plenty of torque and a good drag. I don't have a Shimano reel, but I can recommend BPS Pro Qualifier, Pflueger Supreme and Abu Garcia medium size reels for this rod.

No clue. You would have to break a $100 rod to answer this question. No rod is rated for how many pounds it will hold before it breaks. At least 10 pounds
