9.6ft DXS Salmon Rod- "stout"
Pros: Top-quality materials
Cons: To stiff, Little sensitivity
Comments: 9.6 ft arrived yesterday, I was expecting it to be more flexible. It's very stiff. Tip sensitivity is very poor comparred to the 8.6ft Ugly Stik- Salmon Lite I also ordered and received.. I am likely to keep the Daiwa as a back up rod to the Shakespear product. The line rating for the Daiwa is 8-17lb, the Ugly Stik is 8-20lb.. From that aspect, the rods are similar, that is all.. Feel is paramount, if you prefer a stout rod, the Daiwa is for you, if you prefer a much more sensitive tip and overall increased rod flex,, the Shakespear is the ticket. As for me, I'd prefer the more flexible rod, fight more enjoyable.
 Daiwa DXS862MHXS
Pros: Sensitive, Top-quality materials, True extra-fast action
Cons: Matte finish
Best Uses: inshore or light surf, Salmon or steelhead, River
Comments: This rod surprised me and I'm very impressed with it. Honestly, I ordered it to use for light tackle surf fishing, but after trying it, I decided to keep it out of the surf and use it for salmon. It's extremely sensitive, has top-shelf reel seat and guides, has a top quality cork handle, has a true extra-fast tip action, and easily tossed 2-1/2 ounce weights the one time I used it in the surf. I dropped a star - honestly: half a star - because of the matte finish. Nothing aesthetically, structurally or functionally wrong with a matte finish, but I'm very careful about cleaning gear to stop invasive species, and the matte finish means I need to spend a few more moments cleaning this rod. It is an impressive rod at a bargain price. Highly recommend it for budget conscious anglers - grab one before someone figures out that it's under-priced!
