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
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
THE WORST FOR ME.. I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM HAPPEN TO ME TWICE IN THE PAST WITH THESE SPINNING RODS. THE MAIN BASE IS OKAY, IT WAS ALWAYS THE TOP HALF AT THE BEGINNING WHERE YOU INSERT INTO THE MAIN BASE, IT WOULD CRACK/BREAK, EACH TIME WHILE CASTING OUT WITH A 3oz WEIGHT, THE FIRST TIME ALL I SAW WAS A SNAP, THE SECOND TIME ALL I HEARD WAS CRACKS COMING FROM THAT AREA WHICH WAS OBVIOUS WHEN I LOOKED IN THAT DIRECTION OF THAT SAME PART.

Great Combo choice Paired this rod with a Shimano Thinnus 6000. Great inshore combo. April 28, 2010

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.
