Offshore Angler Power Plus Rods - Boat Trolling
Best Bang for the Buck
I purchased the Offshore Angler Power Plus-Boat Trolling Rod and matched it up to a Shimano Charter Special 2000. I fish for trophy Catfish Blues and Yellow Cats. I am a member of the North Texas Trophy Cats. My team-mate and I have recently been picked up on the Prostaff of one of our sponsorships. Offshore has constructed a well crafted rod with reinforced stainless steel guides and a strong backbone for fighting those bigger fish. It also has the sensitivity and flexibility for those first tell,tell signs of a catfishing moving the bait before it makes it's big run. I am very satisfied with my purchase and it has found a home among the rest of my heavyweight tackle and gear. Thanks Offshore Angler for a great affordable rod for those folks who are on a tight budget in today's difficult times!

At first I thought I would absolutly love this rod. It felt great and seemed like it would surely haul in a big spoonbill. Caught my first one with it and loved the way it felt in hand. Soon after I got another spoonbill going around 45 pounds and bam! My rod broke, but it broke at the reel seat. It was weird as the reel seat was still there fully intact. However what holds it to the blank of the rod is what failed. Thank goodness my penn was locked on the rod, but it would spin around if you didn't hold it.
I would give five stars if it hadn't of broke. BP did swap my rod and I sure hope it was some fluk.

PowerPlus OFA Trolling Rod.
Purchased 2 of the Off Shore Angler Power Plus Rod-trolling. So far they have held up just fine. In comparison to other rods of the same weight they are stiff. I have found that some of the other Rods of this price range just dont hold up. This rod has. This is the perfect In shore rod, trolling deep on the wire, bottom fishing. I used braid with these rods to feel the bite on smaller fish. All in all, good value, durable, throw it in the boat without worry.

Excellent rod for the price.
I've had theses rods for year and continuous use very durable. Reeled in some monsters yet to snap one. I Would recommend to a friend but do not recommend purchase online shipping prices are ridiculous paid separate shipping for each only to have them all jammed into one box. Not what I expected.
