Rated 5 out of 5 by fishingGodyahmahn One of the best poles I ever bought
This pole is great when matched up with a Shimano Triton 200 level wind reel. You can use braided line, because of the stainless steel eyes. This is a great combo for Downrigging. I learned of this combo while fishing Lake Tahoe. I use Reel Deal Charters out of Tahoe City Yahct Club, North Shore. I landed a beautiful 10 pound Mackinaw Trout on this pole. This pole can be used for any type of fresh water fishing, especially when targetting larger fish and greater depths. I highly recammend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Burrito Great buy for the money
I use these rods trolling cranks and crawler harnesses for walleye in reservoirs and lakes in the NW. Sensitive enough to detect those light biters, yet tough enough to stand up to nasty snags and novice anglers on board battling 8 lb walleyes. The Ugly Stik performs as well as more expensive rods, and better from a durability standpoint.

Last year, I went redfishing in Murrells inlet. Caught some very nice reds and some Humonguse sharks and Black Drum on these rods. These are really great rods for the money.

I would like to buy the 7'6" ML casting. I am thinking it will outcast the shorter 7' ML and might be more parabolic fun. I intend to match it with a Daiwa low profile baitcaster. Any owners of the 7'6" ML have any good comments about their rod. Thanks.
Light is an alternative term for fast - so a medium/lt rod would be faster action than a medium. Faster rods will initially flex / bend closer to the tip giving a more progressive resistance as pull increases. Slow action rods bend along the entire rod length and have a more linear resistance curve.
