After landing some fish on the 8 footer I give it a 5 out of 5. I still prefer the 9 foot version of this rod because it can cast an 1/64 oz lure a bit further in bigger water. For the price you can't beat either rod.
Pros: Great deal on noodle rod

About Me:

I have bought four of these rods, 2 9 foot and 2 8 foot. Both 8 foot rods broke just below ferrule on the first trip, fishing for Small mouth Bass. No pressure both with small fish on. The 9 footers are still intact and functioning. Great rods when they hold up but I couldn't give them more than three fish rating. I would buy a couple of more 8 footers if they would hold up. Instead I bought an 8 foot panfish series St. Croix for way to much money. Not used yet, we will see.
Pros: Decent Price
Cons: Durability Question

About Me:

Purchased this rod to fish the lower Niagara river and lakes Erie and Ontario tribs for steelhead and brown trout. So far the rod has perfomed beyond expectation, especially when considering the price. I have found the rod to be well balanced and have the right amount of action to act as a shock absorber when fighting these fish.

Pros: Great deal on noodle rod
Cons: none so far
Best Uses: Float and fly fishing

I have used my new rod on about 5 or so trips. It handled a 3 pound smallmouth with ease. I can cast 1/8 ounce jigs at least 75 feet with it. The quality of the rod is good. The only things I would change would be to put a larger first guide on it and give the blank a little more backbone in the butt section....

Pros: quality of construction
Cons: small guide, a little too wimpy
Best Uses: casting light lures a good distance
Pinnacle Vertex IM7 Noodle Rod (8ft.-6 inches)
Verified
Buyer
South Pasadena, CA.
About Me:
none

This IM7 noodle rod is well built. The upper half of the rod is very flexible, and the lower half of the rod has good backbone. The rod was a very, very good purchase at the sale price of under $30.. The seven guides on my rec'd rod are in prefect alignment. This rod has a hook keeper which many inexpensive spinning rods do not have. The first guide on the lower section of the rod is somewhat small in diameter; however, this should not prove to be a problem in deminishing the rod's casting capabilities, since the first guide is about 27 inches from bail's line pickup roller guide of my older Shimano Stradic 2000 spinning reel. This rod would seem to hold a lot of promise in being able to toss out mini-jigs as light as 1/32 oz. I plan to do side by side testing of this rod against my previous favorite 7 ft.- 6 inch , 2 piece, mini-jig spinning rod. In my upcoming tests will be using the same reel and same weight mini-jigs on each of the two rods. At this time, I think the Pinnacle rod will be able to cast out small mini-jigs as well as my previous favorite mini-jig spinning rod, and maybe even toss out the mini-jigs farther out.

Pros: Well constructed rod-at least the one I rec'd
Cons: Absolutely none
Best Uses: mini-jig spin fishing
Excellent rod

I just recently purchased the rod for the upcoming steelheading season. I have not used the rod yet to give a thorough evaluation. Next year after the season is over I should have a better idea of its performance. This review therefore is strictly on the basis of fit and finish of the rod. The price and quality of the components so far is excellent.

Pros: Value, Quality Components, balance
Cons: none so far

8' is excellent for panfish. The length gives you the ability to cast farther and reach the fish others can't. The rod had good backbone, yet plenty of play in the tip. I just ordered 3 more for my friends who keep borrowing mine.
