Shimano® Crucial® Spinning Rods 3 5 2 2
Paying too much for the name I have now tried 3 of these Crucial rods for walleye fishing and I think they are simply garbage. They were all paired with the Stradic reels and love the smoothness of the reels. Bought these rods based on name and I will not buy another. I have bought cheaper rods with better feel, balance, and sensitivity for half the cost. Shimano fans may like them but I won't use them again. July 10, 2012
CRSX68M2A Just got the 2pcs crucial 6'8" Medium and right away tested it on trouts. 4# test on a Shimano Stradic CI4 3000. The IM-10 tip is very sensitive and enough to detect trouts light bites. The extra fast taper making hook setting easy, but that Extra Fast taper and the 4# test line forced me to set the drag loose. Got the limit with all shimano rods and reels in compre and crucial and stradics. The biggest one for that day was a 2.7 lbs. It actually pulled and bent the crucial in it's final head shake. Can't go wrong with Shimano. January 16, 2012
