Rated 5 out of 5 by Tombtot Great rod !! I mainly fish the tributaries around Lakes Erie and Ontario. In my opinion this float rod Is perfectly suited for these small to medium tributaries. I think the intention is to use this as a centerpin rod however I am a bit old fashioned and prefer to use a spinning reel. I like the versatility of the sliding rings, and put tape on the rings just for peace of mind. Went three for four the first time out with this rod and the one I lost was my fault (swam under the ice and broke the line)., Great action, fair price, quick shipping. Bottom line GREAT ROD thanks bass pro!!! February 8, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by MichianaSteelheader93 Terrible! Worst rod purchase I've ever made! I purchased the 13' float rod around Christmas time...got about 3 uses out of it before the entire top eye fell out trying to get un-snagged by simply pulling back. It's also an extremely unbalanced and heavy rod. Spend the extra 20 bucks or whatever it is and get a guide select! Spending $120 bucks and not getting a lifetime warranty doesn't make the deal any better either. February 14, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by freaknasty89 13' float rod I have the 10'6, 13', & 15' rods.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LMHJr Poor Choice I have been looking for long-rods for a while. While this one was long, the first time I used it the tip broke off behind the second line guide. What a disappointment. July 13, 2011

Details:It doesnt look like this rod has standard seating for a reel or is it just a bad picture?
A:It is not a bad picture. It is what is called sliding rings reel seat. It is typical on float rods and a choice by the manufacturer to accommodate the many different type of reels that are used. It allows your reel of choice to be positioned wherever you choose on the cork handle.
A:It is designed to use a float reel. Think of a fly reel with no drag, that is what it uses. The reel seat is adjustable so that it can be paced anywhere along the handle. Unlike a spinning or casting rod that has a fixed place to put the reel.
A:This rod appears to have sliding rings, as opposed to a reel seat. This allows you to change reel placement to get a perfect balance. If you are worried about the rings sliding off, you can always tape the reel in place. i have heard that this style of reel attachment is preferable amongst float fishermen.

how many pieces is this rod? 2 or 3?
Details:What would you recommend for a starting rod for musky fishing? My more experienced fishing buddy says that I need a road with more guides as well as a bait casting reel. I would welcome your suggestions for a mid-price rod and reel available at your Vaughn store.
A:I'm not sure which version of this rod you're looking at. But, the 11'-6" and the 13'-6" for 1/4 to 3/8 oz lures I'm currently seeing are way, way. way too light for muskellunge.
Any good sized muskellunge would snap these rods into really expensive tomato stakes.
