Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Soft tip. I bought the 7'2" M and was disappointed about how soft the tip was. I just didn't get the length of cast with light lures that I was used to. Guess it's back to the drawing board. January 8, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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 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 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

This rod or Mojo Bass?

Details: 
I'm torn between this rod (7'2" M) and the Mojo Bass (7' M). I swim a lot of grubs, hop tubes, finesses worms and finesse jigs. Also, wacky rig every once and a while. I swim grubs a lot though. I'm wondering if this rod will be ok for that technique since it says its for jigs and worms. I have a jighead on my grubs. I'm guessing the "jigs" part means small and finesse jigheads. I want to get this rod if they come out equal. Thanks for any help you can give!

A: 
Both rods are good choices and it will come down to your preference for handles, colors, ect. I don’t get too hung up on the techniques recommended for any rod. Look at the length, power/action, line and lure rating and if it fits what you are doing that is what you should get.

A: 
The Shimano Compre has a vast range of options. There is definitely a specific rod to fit your need. With the IM-9 graphite construction, partnered with the Fuji Aluminum Oxide Guides, and a Custom Shimano Reel Seat, it will compete well against any other rod in its class. Also, it is backed by an over the counter limited lifetime warranty.

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.

Definitely go with an ultralight, something in the 7 foot length for long casting.

I would recommend using an ultralight for trout and stick with this pole for bass fishing.

Yes this rod can be used for Trout as well, may want to stick with the medium, not the heavy.
