About Me:
This was my first rod purchased for my first center pen set up. It's a nice rod , my only issue is its to soft and flimsy. I like a little more back bone and not so much sensitivity. Makes it hard to set hook.

Pros: Sensitivity, Quality built rod

Cons: No back bone to sensitive

Solid Choice for a Entry Rod

As an entry-level rod, the Guide Select offers good value for the money. It's a little on the soft side for large water, but has a good backbone. As long as you don't hinge the rod, you can put the entire rod to a fish without worry. It's lightweight and easy to work all day. Plenty of sensitivity and control. If you're looking for a good rod to start or as a backup, it's tough to go wrong with the Guide Select. (sliding rings, use electrical tape to stay in place - works well, no problems)

Pros: Durable, Good Tip Action, Easy To Transport, Flexible, Sensitive, Accurate Casting

Cons: none

Best Uses: none

I have purchased this rod and fish western ny steelhead. first time out with it, i landed a nice 10lb steely. no complaints. this is my first float rod and absolutly love it! I got it about 3 weeks ago and have landed many fish on it already. I thought it was going to be hard to used to, but i picked it up and got a hang of it right away without any problems. I got the okuma aventa reel with this rod and its a great combo!

This rod is absolutley perfect for a beginning float fisher or the experienced. I use this rod for salmon, steelhead, rainbows, and browns. It has very good accuracy, and is very flexible and durable for charging salmon, steelhead, or those monster browns and rainbows. This rod not only looks great, but performs great when you need it most.

Pros: Accurate Casting, Easy To Transport, Durable, Sensitive, Good Tip Action, Flexible
