Rated 1 out of 5 by SchaeffHaus Nice rod, but very weak tips.. issues with 2 rods
I bought these rods initially based on previous reviews and looking at them at the local BassPro shop. The rods seemed good for my NP, SMB and Walleye fishing in northern Canada. I purchased 2 rods one for me and one for my Father. On my 3rd cast my braided line caught the tip and snapped the tip right off in mid-cast on a MH 7' rod. I was shocked. Figured, OK could be factory defect, it happens. My father was using his rod with Shimano Baitcaster (also new) and upon hooking about a 30" NP brought over side of boat and his tip too snapped about 4-5" from tip with very little pressure on rod tip (30" pike is only about 7 lbs). I liked the rods look/feel, but the tips are way too weak IMO. I personally like the Extreme BassPro rods better for little less $$$ too or Daiwa rods as they have basically a lifetime warranty on them.

The thing to remember about Shimano is that their rods get handed down the product line, meaning last years Crucial is this years Compre! You basically get a rod that was worth nearly twice as much the previous year and they are worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grinny Great rod! fun fight!
I am not a tournament fisherman, and it seems like all the manufacturers these days make only stiff rods... I found the worm and jig rod in Medium weight and fast action and it is a blast to catch bass on with senkos or other rubber worms... I love these rods I own 3 of them...
