Offshore Angler™ Power Plus™ Rods - Boat Trolling
A good multi-purpose rod.
Bought this rod for a catfish rig. While at my local store I couldn't find a one-piece rod longer than 6 ft until I saw this one, It was on display along with all the other catfish gear. So far so good, seems strong enough bringing in 15 to 50 lb cats and carp. It's cheap enough I don't worry if I accidentally damage it or if it breaks. Of course if it snapped while under warranty BPS will replace it. Overall a good deal for the money. Pair this rod with a Shimano IX4000 spinning reel and you have a very effective and low cost cat and carp combo that will get the job done.

Dont spend the money.
This is hands down the worst pole i have ever used. I purchased it online and had it shipped to my house. I was very impressed with the speedy shipping. The first day i got to use it, less then 2 hours into the fishing, the tip breaks off. I had only reeled it in one time prior to it breaking and had not even hook up on a single fish. The pole broke about a foot from the top. Needless to say, my fishing trip was cut short. Luckily Bass Pro stands behind their products and is going to issue me a full refund.

Good Catfish Rod
We have been fishing with these rods on the ohio river for 2 years now and really like them for drifting. They would have gotten 5 stars if the reel seats were better. 3 out of the 9 of the rods we have the reel seats have spun out on the blank and are unusable now.

Rod worked great !!! First fish on the rod was a 4ft 100+lb black tip shark . Couldn't ask for it to perform any better . I would buy it all over again.
