Unbeatable Price for Entry level Floatin
by G-Dawg -
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.
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.
Great rod for the price

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.

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.
First day with new Okuma Rod

Worked just like it is supposed to! No problems at all. Landed 6+lb bow and others this morning. Great day. Great rod.
