Excellent rod worth every penny
I have a Revo Premiers 30 spinning reel and had it matched up with a 7ft. med. Veritas rod and thought it was the best combo I could ever hope to own regardless of price as I own G Loomis and St. Croix by the bunches. I still think the Veritas rod is awsome but I wanted to try the micro guides to see if it would increase casting distance. I bought the 6ft. 6 in. Duckett med. and man I will never go back. It increased my casting distance tremendously and not sure how but also decreased line twist. This rod is strong and up to any challenge you throw at it. I honestly put a .25oz. top water on the other morning early on a small lake I fish with a little fog rising gave it a strong toss and could not see where it landed. I mean it took me forever to retrieve it. Third cast I hooked a 3 lb. bass and he was so far away it didn't know what I had until I could bring him much closer. This is now my favorite setup and I will be buying more of these as money allows. The fit and finish are great and those tiny little guides hold the line so tight to the rod that you can feel everything. I use Power Pro 10lb. braid and the best reel ( Revo prm30 that less than 400.00 can buy). This Duckett in my opinion is way under priced for what you get. The micro magic is the best rod I my ever own but I will own many as they are truly a value if you can afford great fishing gear and I haven't fished with anything under 3-4 hundred dollars I would trade it for. Great for shakyhead, dropshot and many other applications, a one stop rod if I've ever fished one. Highly recommended for most all fishing types. Great for long distance and strong as a bull. That hump feels great in the hand and even lighter than the Veritas with greater sensitivity. Never thought I would ever say that!

Can't wait to throw this rod!
Spent 2 hours @ BPS today looking for a new drop shot rod. I had a Loomis GL-2, St Croix Rage, Shimano Crucial, and an Abu Veritas in my hand. (I own St. Croix, Loomis GLX, and Falcon rods, so im naturally bias toward them.) Compared them all to the Duckett DFMM70MS and it was lighter and more sensitive than the other 4. I decided to go with it.
I did notice one issue, luckily before I got to the checkout - one of the guides was messed up. The insert was in the guide crooked, making the top razor sharp. That could have been a problem. I went back and swapped it out.
All in all, seems just as nice as rods 2x the price.
Can't wait to give it a try, will report back.
