Shimano® FX® Spinning Rods
I read the reviews and stil decided that for the price it was worth the gamble. On my 4th cast with a two ounce pyramid sinker the rod broke just above the top section where the two pieces are joined. I returned to BPS for a store credit. There is a reason that multiple people have taken the time to post a review for others benefits. Poor construction.

Shimano spinning rod
These are a great purchase for the price. I bought two. Several of the reviews talked about the poles cracking and breaking where the two sections joined. I took shrink wrap and put it around both sections, but I made it so I could still seperate the sections when needed. The heat shrink helps to keep even pressure around the pole and reduce some of the flex. I have had no problems at all and I use it to pier fish all the time. I pulled in a 5 lb stingray, and an 8 lb catfish, those are the biggest so far. But I highly recommend this pole for anyone looking for a good pole for a little price tag.
