About Me:

I bought a 15 ft aventa, used it as a spinning rod, till i got a center pin. for the money i spent, I caught 4 out of 7 fish all over 25 inches in water that was flowing at 200 cfs... no problems at all. power when you need it and enough give to keep them pinned.. it may take a bit to get used to it when rigged as a spinning outfit, being a light action it is a little spongy and may wobble after the cast, or in an unsteady hand.. beware the tip this is a long rod with a fine tip so newbs beware.. don't prop the door with it.. if you are carefull you will get you [$] worth and then some... remeber the rod has recommendations,, follow them, its not a piece of shhhh because you don't take care of it... I have upgraded but still, thes rod is a good way to start pinning without breaking the bank

Pros: Accurate Casting, Well made for price, Good control, Easy To Transport

Cons: Short handle for 15ft rod, Light action only

Best Uses: Trottingcoarse fishing, Float spinningpin, Catfish, Steelhead, Large Fish, River Fishing

About Me:
Avid Fisher
Bought as a combo with Sheffield reel. Fairly smooth casting using the Modified Wallis cast. As a beginner in float fishing I only get about a 20-25 yd casts but I'm consistently acurate. Hook setting seems to be fairly easy with 13'6" rod getting nice long drifts. This was the best deal I've seen for this set-up.

Pros: Good Tip Action

Cons: none

Best Uses: Float fishing, River Fishing

GOOD FEELING ROD, weak tip

Buyer
Western NY

About Me:
Avid Fisher
This rod feels real good in your hands, and fishes real well to, but I am disappointed that today I broke the first two inches of the tip while fighting a little 4 pound steelhead. Other people have said that they have experienced the same thing with this rod. Disappointed that I now have to call the company to replace it. I hope that this rod was just a lemon, and that the replacement will be better.

Pros: Good swing, Flexible, Sensitive

Cons: Breaks Easily, Tip broke off

Best Uses: Steelhead

About Me:

Price is right-however tip broke off second time I used the rod. Okuma is a great company-they stand behind their product. I own five reels and eight Okuma rods. Great factory response. I would purchase the next expensive Okuma rod rather then this model. The tip on this rod is very prone to weakness. My fishing buddies some five of them have had the same problem.

Pros: Light weight-accurate cas

Cons: Needs better eyelets, Breaks Easily

Best Uses: River Fishing

This is a good beginners ceterpin rod, soft and a little heavy, but be weary of it in cold weather. I broke the tip (8") off fighting a medium size steelhead on my third trip with it, yesterday a freind broke his just above the second ferrel fighting a medium sized fish. It seems in cold weather these rods get very brittle. Others I know have had similar experiences.

Pros: Easy To Transport
