Great rod for the price
by 93 mudbug -
I bought this rod on sale for a great price. I have used it several times on the river for salmon float fishing. It handled a 28 lb salmon with no problem. I was using 15 lb flourocarbon leader and 30 lb braid. The light construction of this rod really makes for an incredible battle.

Rod came as described, great medium action with a subtle tip. Daiwa has a winner here. I will primarily use this rod as a light surf caster. Can't wait to hook-up on a nice redfish! Been with Daiwa for 50+ years, and never a let-down.
Great Casting Rod

Was looking for a rod with a little flex in the tip to cast Little Cleo spoons and Husky Jerks from shore for Steelhead and Walleye. It needed to be long, light weight, and still have the backbone to handle big fish. I also wanted something that was fairly inexpensive. This rod meets those needs perfectly.
Strong performing rod with excellent sensitivity!
Replaced my 35 year old Fenwick 8' 3" medium heavy with the Acculite 8'6" medium heavy model so I could use braided line for Lake trout at the Quabbin and Wachusett reservoirs here in Massachusetts. This is the first Daiwa rod I have purchased and I could not be happier. Very light and strong rod that generates smooth, long casts. Feels like an ultralight compared to my old Fenwick and with much faster action.
Great rods, amazing price

Price point Best Buy

I have recently purchased 5 of these rods. 4 spinning and one casting. While I am a fan of Top-of-the -Line rods, I have had more satisfaction from the quality, action, utility and price of the 5 Diawas than what I would get from 2-3 times the cost of one very expensive rod. Good actions, dampen well , make for smooth casting. Cushioned Stainless reel seats. Two of the Spinners, a 9'6" 6-12# and a 9'6" 8-17# have 20+ fish between them.. 6-12 #s. Few days back, broke off a fish headed into a fallen tree. 17# test fresh line broke: rod is fine.

Great rod for the price. Fished with them several times now, sensitive, strong and easy casting. I have the 8'6" M and ML rods, and use them for fishing for walleye in the river. Haven't caught a walleye yet with them, but have caught white bass, kentucky bass, and a stripper.
