Decent rod for money, bad quality control I use 4 of these every weekend with guests trolling for salmon in Prince William Sound, Alaska. The rods perform well, good action and lightweight - perfect trolling rod. However there is WAY too much variability in their quality control, 1 out of 4 is badly made and the top piece will break within the first couple uses/casts at the top/bottom join. Even on the relatively well made rods the top/bottom join is a weak spot. After the first one broke I reinforced the top piece at the join with a black thread and superglue wrap and havent had any more problems. Other than the top/bottom join its a decent rod for my guests to use, especially for the price August 10, 2010
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. April 1, 2013
bad pole I got this pole jun 12 2014 went fish next day. caught a small bass about 10" long snap the top off the pole. June 13, 2014
Inexpensive for a reason I have two of these rods and fished probably ten to fifteen times with each. As some previous reviews indicate, the rod snapped above the bottom half when I applied some pressure when a striper I hooked became tangled in a limb structure. In the past, other brand rods held up well when this occasionally occured. I would not recommend this rod unless the bottom structures that I fished was free from any structures other than dirt or sand. February 24, 2011

A: 
I think you could. The line rating is to 24 pounds but I think the rod could probably handle fish in the 30-40LB range if the fish is played properly.

A: 
I would not use this rod when fishing for large cat fish. The upper part of the rod is too weak to horse a fish with any fight or bulk.

A: 
On the 8 footer rods you could, on the smaller ones the reel seat might be a little too small.

Be careful tightening down the reel seat, these rods can strip if you over torque them.
