Browning Fishing Six Rivers Salmon/Steelhead Rod
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.

just picked up this rod this season. I got the MH rod. Casting off the
piers of Lake Michigan for King Salmon has been a real treat. With the
long rod with 10 pound fireline I can cast smaller lures further than
most can toss a 1oz spoon. I can feel every pulse of crankbaits and
rattle baits. Best of all a very secure feeling when a spawn run King
Salmon is trying to make a run on you. I have longer rods set up with
heavier line, but this is now my go to rod. I can cast all day and not
be exhausted after it all.
Highly recomend this rod.

The rod is wonderful. pullin in 10 or 12 pound steelhead or salmion is a blast on 6# line. i fish rivers (mostly the credit) and it has served me well, i have the 8'6 rod, in MH and i find even though it works awesome for those tough fish, 6 pound is a bit light for it and i'd go for the medium. the only problem i find with it is i mostly do cast and retrieve and i hate casting with 2 hands, and after a couple hours even though i have the 8'6 rod, my wrist starts hurting. also, (even though it's basically my own fault....) i'm used to fishing with 6 and 6'6 rods.....and i tend to stick this guy in the trees a couple times when i'm fishing. Other than those few small flaws, beautiful rod and there's nothing like haulin these fish in on some long rods...
Go buy one if your considering...don't hesitate.
Oh yes, buy it with the combo with the pflueger president reel, greatest reel i've ever used comes to $113 CDN and u most definently get your moneys worth

i have three of the salmon/ steelhead series rods and have had great success and no problems. i have the 15', 10'6" in spinning, and 9'6" in casting they all have caught very nice fish and i have no rods break, or even any problems with them. i am looking forward to buying more of these rods when i have the money this winter and summer.
