First day with new Okuma Rod
by Trout Slayer -
Worked just like it is supposed to! No problems at all. Landed 6+lb bow and others this morning. Great day. Great rod.

Caught one 2 pound trout on this rod only to have it snap. I know of two other people that purchased the same combo and have the same problem . In all three incidences the rod was broken by a fish and not a large fish which is inexcusable.
Great rod for the price
by Chrispy -
Decent rod for the price, plenty of length and good action. My only complaint is the guide sizing at the tip of the rod doesnt quite match what it should be.
Worth every penny

I bought a 15 ft aventa, used it as a spinning rod, till i got a center pin. for the money i spent, I caught 4 out of 7 fish all over 25 inches in water that was flowing at 200 cfs... no problems at all. power when you need it and enough give to keep them pinned.. it may take a bit to get used to it when rigged as a spinning outfit, being a light action it is a little spongy and may wobble after the cast, or in an unsteady hand.. beware the tip this is a long rod with a fine tip so newbs beware.. don't prop the door with it.. if you are carefull you will get you [$] worth and then some... remeber the rod has recommendations,, follow them, its not a piece of shhhh because you don't take care of it... I have upgraded but still, thes rod is a good way to start pinning without breaking the bank
Cold weather may be a problem
This is a good beginners ceterpin rod, soft and a little heavy, but be weary of it in cold weather. I broke the tip (8") off fighting a medium size steelhead on my third trip with it, yesterday a freind broke his just above the second ferrel fighting a medium sized fish. It seems in cold weather these rods get very brittle. Others I know have had similar experiences.
Unbeatable Price for Entry level Floatin

Bought as a combo with Sheffield reel. Fairly smooth casting using the Modified Wallis cast. As a beginner in float fishing I only get about a 20-25 yd casts but I'm consistently acurate. Hook setting seems to be fairly easy with 13'6" rod getting nice long drifts. This was the best deal I've seen for this set-up.

superb rod for the price. performs casting, drifting and fish-fighting well.

Great match for the aventa reel, good rod with good action and the line pick up is sweet. Well it is hard to walk with in the woods because it is so big haha.
you'll never see your husband again!

GOOD FEELING ROD, weak tip
by Nathan Slate -
This rod feels real good in your hands, and fishes real well to, but I am disappointed that today I broke the first two inches of the tip while fighting a little 4 pound steelhead. Other people have said that they have experienced the same thing with this rod. Disappointed that I now have to call the company to replace it. I hope that this rod was just a lemon, and that the replacement will be better.
