Rated 4 out of 5 by Love2BassFish Nice Rod This is a very good looking and feeling rod! It is a little heavier than some other spinning rods, but it doesn't feel like your going to break it every time you set the hook either. (The weight is the reason for only 4 stars) It has a great balance when you match it with a 2500 series Shimano reel. I have the 6'8" MH and use it for finesse worms, light bass jigs and weightless Yum Dingers. It has a great tip for skipping under docks and plenty of backbone for a solid hook set. I have no problem putting a lot of pressure on a bass if needed to get it out of trouble. I will purchase a M action of the same rod for drop shot and small grub fishing soon. It is worth the $100 price tag for sure, it also has a lifetime over the counter warranty! You can't go wrong with this rod if you are looking for quality and not just a gimmick. April 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Grinny Great rods! Very Sensitive! I love the handle on these rods, you can really feel the bite fishing soft plastics, and the lighter weight actions provide a great fight! Buy one you won't be disappointed! I own 2 of these rods. April 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by RD01 Shimano Compre rod I fish inshore waters, from a kayak, for redfish, snook and seatrout. I have found that when casting from a low sitting position in my kayak, heavier saltwater rods, with longer rod butts, can cause a great deal of discomfort in my upper arm and shoulder. The shorter rod butt and lighter weight of the Compre allow me to fish without any discomfort. My Compre is a medium-heavy action and is loaded with 20# braided line. The rod casts my favorite jigs and top-water lures, ranging in weight from 3/8 - 5/8 ounces, beautifully. December 23, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by polo1796 Great Rod Awesome rod with a solid backbone. I got the 6' 8" mh rod and is good for most types of fishing. Paired it up with a stratic ci4 and red 10 pound power pro which looks really nice, and really sentitive. If you are looking to just dropshot with it, get the medium power. Can never go wrong with shimano! June 16, 2012

A:I would go with the medium action. The MH will be too heavy for what you are wanting to do, you need a lighter more responsive tip that the medium will give you. Hope this helps.
A:I would recommend using an ultralight for trout and stick with this pole for bass fishing.
