 Best Rod I Own!!!
Pros: Sensitive, Durable
Cons: Does not come with rod tube or Rod Sleeve.
Best Uses: Steelhead
Comments: I bought an 8' Avid ML Spinning Rod with steelhead fishing in mind and absolutely love it. I wanted a rod with a bit more backbone and a bit shorter than the standard "Buggy Whip" steelhead rod. This rod is the answer. I have landed several nice steelhead with a 4# (as light as I will go) fluorocarbon leader with zero problems. If I had only one complaint it would be that they are a bit high priced and, for the money, they should come with a protective sleeve or case.

 Excellant 2 piece ultralite spinning rod
Pros: Good Tip Action, Accurate Casting
Best Uses: I use it for all my fishing
Comments: I purrchased the Avid AVS60ulf2 spinning rod. I use this rod for my all around UL fishing from Blue Gills, Crappie to largemouth bass. The rod is very sensitive, cast very well and is light. So far I have enjoyed using this rod. plus the rod's finish is outstanding.
 broken tip
Comments: I received my new croix and after opening discovered the tip was broken. Called and talked to a fishusa rep and got immediate response. I was told not to worry, he would make a call and get right back with me. Within fifteen minutes i received the call back and was informed a new rod was on the way and should recieve it within 2-3 days. It was delivered on time and i was very pleased. I will definately do business with them again and highly recomend them to others.

Asheville, NC
 Excellent Value Ultralight Rod
Pros: Sensitive, Easy To Transport, Durable, Flexible, Accurate Casting, Good Tip Action
Best Uses: Small Fish, River Fishing
Comments: I use this rod for all species of trout in the smaller spring creeks of Western NC, near Asheville. I like these rods so much, that this is my second one (I also have a 5 footer that I purchased from FishUSA). It is so sensitive that even with the tiny spinners I use, I can feel the spinner blade vibrations through the handle, when retrieving the lure from a distance. I also have a St. Croix Avid fly rod that I purchased from FishUSA as well. I won't hesitate to purchase more equipment from them - they are very responsive and attentive.
