I bought 2 of these bait casting rods at a local Outfitter. They were represented as the best rods in stock. With many other rods built by respected manufacturers in the racks this was impressive. At home I seated a reel and threaded line through the 9' 8-12lb rod I'd bought and gave it the old chair leg pull test. The guides were spaced too far apart and there were simply not enough of them. Instead of suspending the line above the blank, the widely spaced guides allowed the line to lay hard against the rod and straight line out under it between the guides in the tip section. This is a "real bad" so I returned both to the store. Not having enough guides that are too widely spaced is usually found on low end economy stuff and completely unacceptable in this caliber of pricing so I rated it as poor based upon that. I easily found a set of 8'6 rods with the same line ratings at a nice savings over these from a different manufacturer and both have smooth, transitioning bends with 3 more guides all well spaced that suspend the line beautifully above their blanks. I would not recommend this product.

Used this rod in alaska on king salmon, they worked flawlessly. Actually went out and bought 3 more and use them steelhead fishing.
