10'6" Shimano Convergence Medium Power
Reviewed:

About Me:
Avid Fisher
I use this product for float fishing steelhead on Michigan rivers. I have a 10' Convergence from a couple years ago, and I prefer it to this 10'6". The 10'6" does not balance very well with my Revo Sx baitcaster, very tip heavy, which will wear on your upper arm and shoulder after a long day. It is also a lot softer than my 10' convergence. It fights fish pretty well, but it does bend to the cork and the guides do not seem to be spaced right, because the line rubs on the rod when fighting fish.

Pros: Flexible, Accurate Casting

Cons: Softer Than I thought, Tip heavy

Best Uses: River Fishing
