8' Spinmatic D

by LuiDeFunnes

I have old spinmatic 7' rod - which is great for trout, and crappie, i have need for fast 8' rod to extend range a bit . But old spinmatic have been discontinued, so i got this one. It is different in the good way. Sensitive, little flimsy, but it is 8' UL not light or medium. hook holder still on the wrong side, but i can live with it. So far 5 stars. wait until October, when i planning fish for real trout. So far two times i fish - no cons, pros yet to come.

Its a good rod

by River Brown -

I have the new red Spinmatic and a few older models. This isa god rod and will do what you ask of it. I have no complaints and I have landed a ton of fish. Where i fish, the channel cats like to play during trout season. This rod handles the smaller cats (under 5lbs) easily. This rod is tough and reliable. It is well worth the $35-$40 price tag. I match mine up with Pflueger Trion 20 reels. That combo is the best low budget combo I can find. Never had a problem with either piece. Con: Softer than I prefer in a fast action rod. This rod is a bit softer than some of the fast action UL rods I own. Not much, but I can tell when I toss spoons. I typically use this rod for shore fishing with bait. I have a stiffer Daiwa Presso I enjoy fishing with when using lures. When the time presents itself, I will not hesitate to purchase another Spinmatic. They're good rods .

Good value, durable, but don't expect too much.

by John

Easily the best UL rod for the money. I have two, both have been stepped on several times, slammed into branches, hookset on snags, etc. Both are holding up just fine. I've landed fish from tiny 2 in bluegill to 10 lb buffalo on these, and everything in between. These rods handled superbly.

That being said, the action is a bit softer than I'd like and it's difficult to work lures at the upper range of the lure wt specs (>1/8th oz). It's also not particularly sensitive, but at this price, I can't complain.

Great rod. Will not disappoint

by Ziggy

I bought the 6’6” rod to pair with an ultra light reel I had kicking around figuring it would be a spare or backup outfit. I was wrong, the rod is much more that I thought it would be. Used it at our club pond trout fishing, impressed with the action of the rod. I do have the 7’ trolling rod a love it, the spinning rod didn’t disappoint me either. Can’t go wrong with this rod, well worth the price.

great rods

by GregFisherman

I have 7' old Spinmatic, I have been impressed how it can be used in multiple applications even handling the carp for a moment or two. I have tested new 5' Spinmatic - D against Cherrywood 5' and Celilo 5'. Best in casting and sensitivity. Winner stood no chance against Triumph however.

best in cheap rods competition.

by LuiDeFunes

Now, i have competition between 5' rods spinmatic D, Okuma Celilo and Berkley cherrywood (StCroix Triumph and Avid have best performances and not part of this competition i tested them to) Ok Spinmatic D is the best distance in any weight i use on this trio, sensitivity is better than other cheap rods, quality is good no flaws. it is fast. therefore 8' i mention earlier - no use yet. If you looking for sensitivity and distance reel pais with Shimano Sedona 500, for ballance.

The Gateway Drug of Daiwa Rods

by Scott

If you didn't know it, you might think this rod cost $80 or $100 or more. For the few bucks they charge, Daiwa is giving you a great rod that looks great too. It is the best value you will find in fishing tackle.
