 Perfect action for multi species
Pros: nice light action
Cons: fiberglass sensitivity
Comments: Although this rod is fiberglass which will give a reduced amount of feel compared to graphite the action is perfect for pitching small baits for crappies, small bass and walleyes. I use a lot of braided line and this moderate action will help stop tearing out the mouths on crappies. The fiberglass will make it tough and last a long time. I usually use a UL for crappie but a lot of my bump around fishing includes catching small bass and walleyes and this rod gives the little extra power for slightly bigger baits and I plan on deep water double jigging for crappies soon so I will need more than a UL for the weight I need to get it down and keep it in 20' near the bottom.

 Excellent live bait and small lure casting rod
Pros: light and sensitive, casts extremely well, excellent price
Cons: Learning curve to set hooks
Best Uses: bait and light jigs, Panfish, trout, smallies, perch, white bass
Comments: Love this rod! Paired it with a Pfleuger President and some 8lb NanoFil, and it works really nicely for panfish, perch, and smallies. I'm looking forward to trying it on some eater walleyes. My only knock was the learning curve for hook setting. It took a while to get used to the slower action, but once I worked out my technique its been fine.

 great action
Pros: sensitivity, light and sensitive
Best Uses: Trout, panfish
Comments: I purchased this rod for use 1 week a year at Lake Panguitch, Utah, a stocked rainbow, Cutthroat and Tiger Trout lake. The rod exceeded my expectations with cast-ability and sensitivity. We fish a quarter ounce slip weight on 4 pound Vanish baited with Gulp dough bait. In 5 days of fishing I caught nearly 50 rainbows and 15 Cutthroats from 12 to 18 inches, releasing everything under 18 and all Cutthroats. I did catch one 20 inch Tiger Trout on Berkley Gulp Chunky Chartreuse Garlic, it also went back. I am going to order another one of these 7 ft. light rods for next year.

 Nice feel for the money
Pros: light and sensitive, casts well
Cons: reel seat is junk, I can see how it cracks easily
Comments: Got the 7' light and it suits my needs. I read some reviews that said the reel seat is junky, and they were correct, so I just wrapped it in electrical tape to keep it from breaking. First trip out I got 3 16", and a 21" stocked Rainbow. No issues with the rod, which was both sensitive and had enough backbone to boat the big one without a net. I needed this rod because I don't have a green one!!

Reel Seat needs to be re-inforced.
Pros: Light and very sensitive
Comments: My 11 yr old grandson placed his first cast and hooked a 2lb 3oz Rainbow Triploid within 30 seconds of the bait hitting the water. As he reeled in the cork reel fastener BROKE in two!!! He landed the fish but his brand new pole was a disappointment. Good thing I had a spare pole. I'm waiting for Berkley to replace the pole on warranty. Pole cost [$] last week. This week it cost [$] for Fedex return plus $9.95 S&H for a return pole a total of [$] ... go figure!
