Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent rod for the $$ I own four of these rods and use exclusively for largemouth bass. The feel is amazing and balance is perfect. Well worth the money. July 7, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Performs as well as many much higher priced rods. I have several Falcon Cara and Kistler helium rods and am really surprised how good a rod this is. Sensitivity is just as good as the Falcon or Kistler. The balance is very good with a Shimano stradic or Sahara . I ordered the medium heavy for Shaky head and tube baits and it has performed above my expectations . The weight of the rod was surprisingly light and the only reason I rated the rod as a 4 instead of a 5 was due to the foam type grip which I like but am unsure of the long term durability. This rod performs just as well as the higher price rods I own. July 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very satisfied. This rod is better then some hi end brands. It's worth every penny, I gaurentee, that for a hundred bucks you will not find a better rod. June 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing!!! Purchased the 7'2" medium, fast action to go with my Stradic Ci4 4000. Worked great in salt water on big reds and perfect for largemouths on swim baits. Rod is ultra light and very sensitive. Easily handled a 15lb red. April 13, 2013

A: 
The advantage for the K series alconite guides compared to the Fuji titanium frame SIC guides used on the original Johnny Morris series rods is that the K series guides are more tangle free -- especially when fishing with one of the newer super braid lines. Alconites also cost less -- keeping overall rod cost down.

Both titanium frame SIC guides and recoil guides flex better which can be an advantage, and SIC guides are harder than alconite guides.

A: 
Definitely not!

The titanium framed SiC guides that were on last years model were much better but they also cost more so I'm sure BPS went to stainless steel framed alconite guides to save money.

FYI: The rod price is lower this year and the cheaper guides probably play a big part in that.
