Browning® Fishing Six Rivers Salmon/Steelhead Rods
Worst rod purchase I've ever made! I purchased the 13' float rod around Christmas time...got about 3 uses out of it before the entire top eye fell out trying to get un-snagged by simply pulling back.
It's also an extremely unbalanced and heavy rod. Spend the extra 20 bucks or whatever it is and get a guide select! Spending $120 bucks and not getting a lifetime warranty doesn't make the deal any better either.

I have been looking for long-rods for a while. While this one was long, the first time I used it the tip broke off behind the second line guide. What a disappointment.

I bought the 10'6" noodle version of this rod in the spring and have been using it for salmon and steelhead in southern Ontario. The rod handles great. I've pulled in 36" salmon with it on 4lb line. The bend to it when fighting a fish is just sexy. The rod also has a really nice finish to it. I've got multiple compliments on how nice the rod looks from guys running 15' float rods with centerpin reels and you know how stuck up they can be... This is a beautiful rod and very well priced, the guys that complimented me on it were sure it was a $300+ rod. If you're not used to long rods it can be a bit tricky to use, but a few days out with it and you'll be a pro with it.

It is designed to use a float reel. Think of a fly reel with no drag, that is what it uses. The reel seat is adjustable so that it can be paced anywhere along the handle. Unlike a spinning or casting rod that has a fixed place to put the reel.
This rod appears to have sliding rings, as opposed to a reel seat. This allows you to change reel placement to get a perfect balance. If you are worried about the rings sliding off, you can always tape the reel in place. i have heard that this style of reel attachment is preferable amongst float fishermen.
What would you recommend for a starting rod for musky fishing? My more experienced fishing buddy says that I need a road with more guides as well as a bait casting reel. I would welcome your suggestions for a mid-price rod and reel available at your Vaughn store.
