About Me:

I bought this rod through FishUSA and I was excited to try this for Steelhead in Michigan. The very first time I took this out in 2009 the rod broke within one hour of making casts....The rod just shattered on my casting on 3/30/09. JBI replaced my rod very quickly and I kept the rod in the sleeve (never took the replacement rod fishing) until 04/09/10 to once again fish for Steelhead. Within one hour of fishing the rod shattered again in the same spot...Not a coincidence...This rod is made in China...Don't waste your money...I now have to fight to get JBI to return my money plus the shipping and handling to me. I would not put any money towards this rod at all...You'll be sorry..!! FishUSA can't get rods right now due to manufacturing problems...Geez I wonder why!!!

Pros: Good Tip Action, Sensitive

Great rod for the money. Had one other one that I used like crazy, but the cork handle got loose. For the money and good quality I had to buy another. Bear in mind I had the first one for over 3 years, and used it for just about anything I thought it could handle. Even caught some Flatheads pushing 20lbs with it. I probably abused it more than I should have, otherwise I probably wouldn't have had to buy another. Awesome rod!
