Rated 5 out of 5 by Flgatorhunter 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Stripernabber 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DominionCharters 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
