In the 1960's, Browning pioneered the development of fiberglass rods... and in so doing, created a legend. Crafted of proprietary Hi-Density tubular fiberglass, a SilaFlex rod offered the most advanced technology of the day--the ideal blend of light weight, strength, flexibility and sensitivity. Today's SilaFlex is true to the original (if you've owned one, your hand hasn't forgotten the feel!). Same quality blanks, same classic actions, upgraded with aluminum oxide guides, premium cork handles and lightweight graphite reel seats for exceptional handling all around.
Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Old School Greatness! I began fishing with my grandfather back in the late 60's, when there were not a million different graphite and carbon matrix rod choices out there. My grandfather swore by his Browning Silaflex flyrod, and never left home without it. When I was old enough to choose and purchase my own gear (early 70's) my spinning rod of choice was the Browning Silaflex, matched with a Daiwa spinning reel. This combination served me well for many years, and I went through many similar rod and reel combinations during those years. After years of fishing with "modern" rods and reels, I've often wondered why all the changes? I don't remember my old, simple Daiwa spinning reel having tangled line every six casts as do the new fancy spinning reels, and they did not cost a week's salary. And, you never heard of an old FG rod breaking on a mid-size bass. Thanks for bringing back the Silaflex spinning rod at a beautiful price. I have a Pflueger President on mine and it feels like the old days. My grandfather would be happy for me. Do yourself a favor and buy one of these rods. You don't have to be an old timer to appreciate the simplistic beauty of it, and you'll have a difficult time snapping this rod on some 5 pound fish. Enjoy! June 3, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by To limber I purchased this rod a couple of weeks ago. It's labeled medium heavy but it's more like medium. Wouldn't recommend it for like top water frog fishing in heavy cover. It's too limber. May 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Small price, Good quality This rod is amazingly light, throws crankbaits a mile and simply cannot be beaten on price. I was in two minds as to whether or not to purchase this as a crankbait rod, I am so glad I did. The rod looks nice, reel guard is sturdy and the rod performs on bigger fish. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a cheap but sturdy, lightweight cranking rod, why pay for expensive rods when this will work very well! April 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best rod This is one of the best fishing rods I've used in a long time. I love the action with it. April 17, 2013

A: 
yea, i think so. these are great crankbait rods that should be paired up with a matching reel and mono-filament line. the tip absorbs the action of the crankbait. and the mono allows for a little stretch when setting the hook. use a sideways sweeping action with your hook set, just not too fast.

the weight of these rods doesn't come into play. i didn't notice any issues. i just totally enjoyed the fact that these are great crankbait rods. i was able to work them all day without stressing out my arms. the rod tip absorbs all the action and leaves you free to concentrate on catching fish. a must have for serious cranker.

Details: 
I plan to go at least once a week this year to my local ponds Im buying this rod this week and pairing it with this > Pflueger® President® XT.
Im going to be fishing spinners, plastics, live bait, & whatever else I have in my box. I usually grab my 7' rod now and take that. But im curious what you think I should get the 7' or the 6'6" ?

do 7' 'ers cast further ? I assume they do... ?
sometimes I will have a row boat / canoe others will just be from shore.

...oh & what do you recommend for line ? test / brand ?

thanks in advance !

My friend, the Pflueger is an excellent match. Use the 6.6" with 8 or 10lb Berkley clear mono and black with silver flake senko's.

A: 
I fish both salt water and fresh water. I like to be consistant with my rods and whether spinning or bait casters, I like 6'6" rods. You may be able to cast further with a 7' rod, but I get a lot of distance with the 6'6" rods and really don't think the difference would be noticeable. I use 10 lb. test line on this outfit which is MH and 8 lb. on my spinning outfit with a M rod. I use 12 lb. on all my baitcasters regardless of the flex of the rod.

A: 
If I'm in a boat I prefer the 7' rod, if I'm fishing from shore I prefer a 6'6" model. It really depends on how much brush you will have to contend with fishing from shore. If the shoreline is clear I would go with the 7' model. You can get a little more on your cast with the longer rod.

On spinning gear I prefer fluorocarbon line in 6-10lb test depending on the size of the reel. I prefer Spiderwire 100% fluoro but the Bass Pro XPS 100% Fluoro is pretty good too.
