Daiwa Spinmatic Ultralight Spinning Rods are true performance ultra-light rods. These rods let you cast lighter offerings and sense the slightest of bites, while still providing plenty of backbone. Spinmatic rods feature Daiwa's Extreme Guide System for greater hooking power, sensitivity, and accuracy. Great for trout, panfish and crappie.
Spinmatic Ultralight Spinning Rods feature black blanks with metallic orange thread wraps and black guides.
Features of the Daiwa Spinmatic Ultralight Spinning Rods include:
great rod, good for long distance hook sets, bought a new one on here recently to replace my old one that my friend rolled up in his power window, snapped instantly as it is hollow at the upper part, also had one of the guides bend slightly somehow on my old one after not much use, but all in all cant beat the price, action is great, very sensitive, funnest trout rod ive used (went with the 7 ft UL FAST action) would be 5 stars if it was a more durable rod
I RECOMEND THIS ONE...
The 8' model is as good an ultralight as you will find in this price range. The rod is light and well balanced. Quality components and construction.
This is a great rod for the price
I am not suprized my next Daiwa Spinmatic ultralight is on back order because these are great light weight rods for a good price. Teamed it up with an all metal Zebco Platinum 11PL Spincast Reel for trout fishing our lakes in Eastern Washington. I hope that my next rod gets shipped soon, I want a complete arsenal of these rods in defferent lengths for trout, steelhead and small salmon in the Puget Sound. I have landed some 15 - 20 inch trout on the 5' and it was a great experience. The UL action helps launch lightweight spinners and spoons with ease.
I hope my next rod is shipped soon and in time for the Humpy run on the Puyallup River!
After using several manufacturers of ultra light / noodle rods, I must say that I was very impressed with the quality and great price of this one.
The action is true and it still has plenty of backbone to play out large fish.
I can honestly say that this is by far my favorite trout rod now and will be ordering another one in the near future.
Very good action for a rod this lenght.
I havn't had it long enough to see how it holds up but so far so good.
Bought the 71/2 ft.and used it for stocked trout. Casts very light offerings really well. The fish I caught fought hard and were a lot of fun.
Love this rod,very sensitive,let you feel even the slightest hits.Long last with the lightest lures
love these rods, very sensitive , with a lot of action ,lets you really enjoy the fight of the fish
2 cons first. Guides on a 8ft rod could've been long cast guides and lower butt section of rod on all lengths of the Spinmatics need more backbone/stiffness. However, having stated that, what a great rod for the price. Aesthetically as nice or nicer than those more elite brands. Very nice sensitive feel pulling small plugs and crankbaits. For the money, very very good buy.
I first bought the 7 footer, liked it so much i bout the 6 and 4' models, matched with the diawa crossfire spinningreel, these feel great and are a pleasure to fish with.
This rod has the touch & feel I need for those very light crappie hits out in open water. It casts my 1 & 2 pound Fireline smoothly and quite far. I'm very happy with this rod!
Great ultralight rod. If you like ultralight fishing this is a nice rod. It has a really nice feel with a soft tip. Vary sensitive. I really like it.
I purchased the 7'6" and 8' after having great use with the 7' rods. I took the 8' out to drift salmon eggs under a float on a river. The action and ease of casting light offerings is great. I landed several rainbow trout in the 14-18 inch range and never worried about the 2lb line breaking because of the action. I felt every head shake and pull. This rod is a great value and if you fish for trout, it is a must.
