Great value rod!
Pros: Flexible, Good Tip Action, Sensitive, Accurate Casting
Best Uses: River Fishing
Comments: I find for the price this is a great rod. Good quality, sensitive, protects light leaders, and overall handles steelhead very well. I feel it is a bit on the heavy side which you will notice when you fish all day.

 Excellent rod,Great Value
Pros: Sensitive, Durable, Flexible, Accurate Casting, Good Tip Action
Best Uses: River Fishing
Comments: Great rod for Niagara River bottom bouncing out of the boat or from shore. Action is very forgiving when fishing light lines for steelhead. These rods are equal to or better than rods costing three times more. I now own four of these, and every one fishin out of my boat who uses them thinks they great.

Don't Waste Your Money...
Pros: Good Tip Action, Sensitive
Cons: Breaks Easily, Poor Construction
Best Uses: Small Fish
Comments: I bought this rod through FishUSA and I was excited to try this for Steelhead in Michigan. The very first time I took this out in 2009 the rod broke within one hour of making casts....The rod just shattered on my casting on 3/30/09. JBI replaced my rod very quickly and I kept the rod in the sleeve (never took the replacement rod fishing) until 04/09/10 to once again fish for Steelhead. Within one hour of fishing the rod shattered again in the same spot...Not a coincidence...This rod is made in China...Don't waste your money...I now have to fight to get JBI to return my money plus the shipping and handling to me. I would not put any money towards this rod at all...You'll be sorry..!! FishUSA can't get rods right now due to manufacturing problems...Geez I wonder why!!!

Pros: Durable, Flexible, Good Tip Action, Handle Comfort, Easy To Transport, Accurate Casting, Sensitive
Best Uses: River Fishing
Comments: I use this rod from October thru till May on the Niagara river. This is a great boat rod for river steelhead fishing, handles those line peeling rainbows without any problem, even with ultra light line. This is a well finished rod with a very comfortable handle and excellent performance, equals some custom rods I have used. Outstanding rod for the price

this rod rocks!!!!!!
Pros: Good Tip Action, Flexible, Sensitive, Durable, Accurate Casting, Fun to fight large salmon
Cons: Hard To Transport
Best Uses: Small Fish, Large Fish, River Fishing
Comments: this rod is awsome to fight salmon on. you can put a ton of force on the fish to keep them from the rocks in my local river. i have landed around 40 to 60 salmon on it allready. the largest is 17 pounds but have had larger on it with no trouble. it makes it easier to use light line on salmon.

 Great rod for the money
Pros: Affordable, Good Tip Action, Sensitive
Best Uses: Surf Fishing, Small Fish
Comments: I use the 10' noodle rod for surf fishing in southern California. It has a great tip action and really allows me to get the bait out there with the 10' length. I now have 2 of the JBI Black Diamond rods and I would recommend them to anybody into fishing with light tackle. They have held up great and are really affordable.

 Good Rod
Pros: Sensitive, Accurate Casting, Easy To Transport, Durable
Best Uses: Any fish you deem fit
Comments: Great rod for the money. Had one other one that I used like crazy, but the cork handle got loose. For the money and good quality I had to buy another. Bear in mind I had the first one for over 3 years, and used it for just about anything I thought it could handle. Even caught some Flatheads pushing 20lbs with it. I probably abused it more than I should have, otherwise I probably wouldn't have had to buy another. Awesome rod!
