Rated 5 out of 5 by Shue Outstanding Rod & Outstanding service. I recently purchased the 7'1" Med. action spinning rod. (This is my 3rd Rage Rod.) The sensitivity & light weight of this rod is unbelievable. The handle is very comfortable and gives you a firm grip even when wet. During a recent trip it broke about 6" from the tip when I set the hook. I contacted St. Croix about this issue. Their service department contacted me within 10 minutes of me sending them the email. There was no issues with getting it replaced. Outstanding customer service. April 12, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by GoneBassFishin St. Croix Rage spinning/casting rods I purchased a spinning and casting Rage rod as part of St. Croix's promotion (buy two and get one free). In the limited amount of time I've had to fish with them I am impressed with their light weight and action. The neoprene handles are a bit less in diameter than my other rods but are still comfortable and offer good grip while saving weight. The reel seat is sturdy and sensitive but again, as these are my first St. Croix rods I think the reel seat has the reel sitting a bit higher on the casting rod versus my other rods. The PAC BAY Minima micro guides seem sturdy and I can cast a country mile. All of my casting rods have micro guides and I highly recommend them. While these rods don't "stand out" from any of my other rods I feel I will get many years of enjoyment out of them. December 31, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by BassinMass Rage ML I bought this rod for finesse fishing. It is very light and incredibly strong. There appear to be a few bugs yet to work out. The first one I had snapped while pulling in a small pickerel, but this was replaced and has stood up. Best blank for finesse I have found. The bigger problem is the plastic reel seat. It is not able to tighten down sufficiently and therefore the reel wobbles a bit which is unnerving when playing a big fish but so far hasn't let go under these conditions-this definitely needs to be fixed before this rod reach the excellent category. I have two of theses and this is an issue for both models. July 18, 2012

Details:I'm switching over to braid for my main line on spinning gear. My old spinning rod is nice but the action is too stiff for braid. I saw the 6'8 Medium model of this rod and the action feels perfect for braid. My concern is that my leader knot won't flow through the smaller guides smoothly. I don't use microguide casting rods for this reason. Has anyone used this rod, or similar micro guide spinning rods with braid and a flouro or mono leader? Any problems with this? Any suggestions for this or any other rod that would be good? Thanks.
A:I have a Rage Bait cast rod. The micro guides do not like knots. They will hang up in the tip.
A:The last few eyes are all the same size (about the same as the rod tip eye on other spinning rods). I believe you will be fine using the leader knot. However, if possible, I recommend you go look at one before spending the money.

A:The action on your older rod won't be too stiff for braid. If you are worried about braid not stretching and too much power on your hook set,just ease off a little.
I have a micro guided rod and I use 15 pound powerpro,works great. I don't use a leader of mono etc but I don't see a problem with 20 to 30 pound mono leader.
You might slightly notice the knot but that also depends on how long of a leader you use to reach the guides.
