Shimano Compre Bass Spinning Rod
Sensative and great feel...
Pick up the 7'2" MH with a Shimano Stella 4000,great jigging pole for them bass here in Ca. from small mouth to large mouth and also striped bass at the Rio Vista or Bay Area in Oakland. Very sensitive tip in feeling all the small movements of the fish nibbling the bait,either jigging or bottom bait fishing. The tip is very sensitive when jigging any type of lures,you can feel the movements of the lure in the water . The finish of the rod is very good with great guides installed at the factory. Have hookup a 40 "sturgeon on this light setup and it really held together like a piece of cake. Fast hook up with the rod is par none from other rods. I will keep this as my light "get to go " main system in my fishing arsenal rigs.

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.

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.

i own 2 of these rods one casting one spinning i like them better than my st croix mojos. I paired the spinning to a quantum smoke , and the casting to a quantum energy pt love these setups. My st croixs have abu revos on them but you can't beat these rods .. I fish 30 to 50 hrs most weeks so i know a good rod when i see one..
