Really fast delivery.  It's February and won't be able to use them for a few months, so no review on actual use.  Heavier than I expected, but I guess that's the way trolling rods with heavy weights need to be - I hope the handle fits my rod holder.  Should be fine though.  I have used more finesse-type equipment in the past

About Me:

Brought to try to compare with the Heartland line of medium heavy trolling rods. I actually like the rod action of these rods trolling kwik fish from a drift boat going downriver. The tip telegraphs the action of the lure quite well and has the action and toughest to easily handle a 30 pound plus king salmon. Additionally, the very low rod price makes it so I not concerned about breaking the rods and I have purchased two rods each of the 8, 8 1/2, 9 and 9 1/2 foot for myself and my friends have also purchased at least two in various lengths. Good deal and I couldn't be any happier with my purchase decisions.
