Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor Quality 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. June 30, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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
Rated 4 out of 5 by A lot of Rod for a good price I bought his rod based on price; Length and power is what I was looking for and that is what I got. July 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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

Answer this Question


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.

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.

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.
