Offshore Angler™ Power Stick™ Spinning Rods
I have the 15-30 3/4-3oz model and it is outstanding for such an inexpensive rod. It has all the backbone in the world and moderate flex and fast action for incredible hook setting/fish fighting power. It has six large, super tough guides which allow for surprisingly good casting with heavy mono line. It's even fairly sensitive despite its heavy action. Also, the product description doesn't mention this, but mine has a Fuji reel seat. Bonus! It's a little heavy, but that's to be expected from a glass rod and it's well balanced, so that's not that big of a deal. I use mine for catfishing rivers and couldn't ask for a better rod for the task, especially for less than $60.

Great Rods for the Prices!
I bought the Offshore Angler - Power Stick, model PSS71017, 7.0', 10-17# line, 1/2-2oz, Light Lure Action.
I matched it to a Penn Battle 5000 and this makes for a great combo for surf/pier and inshore.
I could not ask for more performance from the rod.
First fish on it was a 27# Black Drum in strong surf & outgoing tide. More than enough backbone to haul the fish through the waves & current.
The action is great for jigging Spanish on the pier.
Sensitive enough to fish flounder and feel the lightest taps.
Heavy enough to haul Sheepshead off the pilings.
I now have three Offshore Angler rods, and all three meet & exceed my expectation for rods in their prices ranges.
Offshore Angler - Ocean Master - model OM12SS, surf/spinning, 12.0', 2pc, 6-12oz.
Offshore Angler - Cobia Special - model OE81530, spinning, 8.0', 15-30#, 2-5oz

Great rod for the money
I mounted a pair of older 4500 Baitrunners on these rods. They have a good backbone and should easily handle the, kings, tarpon and big jacks that we catch around here.
