Rated 5 out of 5 by Cody1 Amazing Rod!
I just purchased this rod today in 7'2, medium power, and 6-12 line. Lets just say that this is the greatest feeling rod i have held. it is very balanced and responsive when bass are biting. I was a little scared to make the jump to such a nice/expensive rod, but it was worth it!

I have purchased (2) Shimano Crucial Casting Rods in Drop shot configuration. One is 6'5" and the other one is 6'11". I had to switch to the casting rod versus the spinning rod for my "Drop Shot" fishing due to the fact that I have a torn right Rotator cuff and I am right handed. I have found the casting Rod is much easier to use casting left handed compared to the Spinning Rod "and the "Crucials"
really work well. Bet they even work better if I could use them with my right arm!
Would recommend these Rods for anyone considering "Drop Shot " fishing with a casting rod & reel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by imsencer Best Casting Rod Ever
I absolutely love this rod, it is the lightest and most durable rod I have ever used. The rod is so much lighter than my other rods that I have trouble fishing with them because they are so heavy in comparison.
