MS 702L
Pros: long, light weight, durable, guides attached well
Cons: foam butt
Best Uses: panfish, light lures
Comments: I have a 7' MS 702L, and purchased it over a handful of years ago. I'm not sure if they have made any improvements or changes to this rod since, the picture looks similar. This rod is really impressive and has sold me on Shakespeare rods. If I was to replace this rod, I'd buy another. I've been using it with 4-6lb line to pull medium sized bass, and walleye out of a spillway, and all of my pan fishing. The guides are cheep stainless, but are attached to the blank very well. The only improvement I would like to see on this $20 rod is to replace the foam butt with a plastic butt. The foam can get damaged too easily; I've had that happen with previous rods.
 Shakespeare Micro Series 5'6" Light
Best Uses: trout
Comments: Great entry level lightweight rod. Good action and nice workmanship. Have used for smaller bass and creek size trout.
 nice rod for the $$$
Pros: light action, affordable 7'6", handles very light lures
Cons: maybe just a tiny bit soft
Best Uses: trout & panfish
Comments: Fished the 7'6" UL model for the first time this week. Fished spinners, spoons and plugs betwween 1/32 and 1/4 oz. Took me a little while to get used to the softer casting stroke. But now it's my favorite trout lake rod and only twenty bucks!
 Good light weight trout rod
Pros: Quality
Comments: I found this rod to be a quality fishing rod for the price.

 Great rod
Pros: sensative
Comments: Very sensitive rod. Great for panfish
 Nice rod.
Comments: I've not had the chance to use this rod yet, but for the price the quality of workmanship and feel in my hand makes me think it will be a great crappie rod.
 good but fragile
Pros: sensitive, long Cast
Cons: Durability
Comments: Very sensitive but not as duruable as the ugly stick if you get the longer ones it would be wise to get a case.

One of the best deals out there
Pros: best performance for the price
Cons: no snob appeal or St. Croix logo, etc.
Comments: I own a number of rods from this product line, ranging from the shortest to the longest. I use them on crappie, bass and bluegill, catching the occasional musky. I am a kayak fisherman, and do not like to spend much on rods as they are always at some risk. But with these rods, you get first-class performance at a price point that allows you to fish them hard and regularly without worrying if one of them gets yanked from the tether by a large fish. Sensitivity is wonderful.Form, function, stress-free.

 Shakespeare micro series rod
Pros: Great performance, Price
Comments: I really like the rod for crappie. It is very sensitive and you can see and feel the lightest bite, but it also has plenty of backbone when that big bass jumps on your lure. The long cork handle sets well in a rod holder but also feels great in your hands. This rod is really well balanced with an ultra light spinning reel. It is inexpensive but I can't see spending a lot more money for very similar performance. Great buy
