These rods are trash. I purchased two of the XH models. Both shattered into pieces on a Gag Grouper fishing trip by 20 lb fish. Bass Pros would not replace the rods since they were 18 months on a 1 year warranty.
I have several Shakespeare Jigging rods that are 1/2 the price and 2 times the quality.
What a shame, these Freestyle rods have a great feel.

Not strong enough for Stellwagen Cod
I went to the Bass Pro Shops outlet in Foxboro, MA and talked to the salesman. I told him I was headed out on a party boat that weekend to do some cod fishing on Stellwagen Bank and I wanted a new rig. I mentioned that we'd be jigging norwegian jigs, and also bottom fishing with clams. He steered me to this rod.
I was surprised at how thin the rod seemed and told him I would have thought a stiffer / thicker rod would be needed. He basically said, "Yeah, a lot of people think that but these new rods can do the job just fine and also give you that little bit of extra sensitivity for feeling bites when bottom fishing."
So I took this rod, along with a Daiwa Saltist 40H reel, 80lb braided line, and 50 pound leader out fishing the next day.
I even asked the deckhand to take a look at my setup.. since it seemed everyone else on the boat was using Penn 4/0 reels along with short telephone poles for rods. He said, yup.. no problem, that rod is rated for up to 200lb line. No worries.
The first cod I hooked into was not overly big. Maybe 10-15 pounds? The rod broke into 3 pieces as I was trying to get the catch up from about 150 feet of water. Fortunately I managed to land the fish, but I'll be heading back to BP Shops to replace this rod with a heavier model
