Must admit I was skeptical about the weight of this rod and how it would affect performance. Have fished with it a number of times and have been very pleased. I use the 6'6" MH rod for throwing plastics and it has done very well. I pitch docks during summer months and I have had no problems pulling fish out of cover. This rod loads up nicely and I have no complaints with the power. This is my first light construction rod and I was worried how it would hold up under a heavy load. I have not had any problems. The most surprising thing about this rod is the weight. I was truly surprised at the difference between this rod and what I usually use. The weight made a much bigger difference than I ever thought.

This Quantum is SMOK'N
I liked the Smoke med heavy spinning combo so much that I had to buy the med heavy casting rod with the 151 caster. This baitcast combo is fantastic! I spooled it with 20 pound powerpro and went after the biggest readily available fish that I could,Carp. I caught several hard fighters in a medium river current with biggest being 14.62 pounds. No problems handling these fish,not that I thought there would be. This rod/reel is very light weight and a dream to cast for extended periods,excellent balance. The rod is really sensitive and strong. The reel is very smooth in casting/retrieving and easy to adjust. The drag is also smooth when slowly tightening and much more than enough for Carp. Comparing it to my St.Croix rods and Revo S reels,I am very pleased with this purchase.

Snapping rods left and right
I bought the 7'6" heavy rod for flipping heavy cover. i was flipping some thick mats with it and hooked into a decent size fish. i trolled into the mat and as i did the fish surged down and SNAP! the rod broke 6" inches down from the top. while this rod was being sent back to Quantum to be replaced i went to BPS to get another of the same rode figuring mabey i just got a bad blank. so i bought the rod came home and got it ready to fish. went out the first time with it hook a 4 pounder in open water around no cover and as i was working it to the boat i hear SNAP once again! luckily for me BPS exchanged the rod for me without a receipt because i had lost it and i am very greatfull to them for that. Thanks BPS. in conclusion the rod does have a great feel and is light as a feather but none of that matters if the rod has no stregth. in my opinion there GARBAGE.

My lightest and most sensitive rod!!!
Bought a 7' Med. Heavy and absolutely love it! Tough as nails. I have it paired with a Revo S and It's the smoothest, lightest combo I own.

A heavy action rod is great for fishing football jigs, especially when flipping and pitching to bass that are backed in to cover. As for worms, it may be a bit tougher if casting. Larger worms such as 10" worms and senkos may be adaptible to a rod of this weight, but for those smaller, you may want to look at using a medium heavy rod. Tight lines!
I am just starting out with casting reels & rods, I can cast fine so that's not an issue but I am wondering what size is a good short Handel cranking size rod? I mostly use plugs & hard swimbaits, so which of the selection would be best for that? I have the smoke 6:3.1 reel already, incase u were wondering what reel I was looking to use it with. Also a braided line diameter suggestion is welcomed also. (I fish stripers, bass...etc)
It has a five year warranty tag that comes on the rod. unfortunantly it wont last you five years. i would be suprised if you get a year out of it seeing as how i have bout 2 and both rods have snapped on me toward the tip while fighting fish(bass). save yourself the hassle and choose a different rod.
