Great value and good looks

These rods cast brilliantly, have a great action and have lots of fighting power for the big fish.

Review Update (This Rod Is Awesome)
by Poxy Boggards (FNN)
Just wanted to update my review. I started using this rod for trolling as well as plastics. I love the actio that the 7'0" rod delivers when trolling. I managed to land a 15# trout out of Corona Lake while trolling with this rod. I am amazed that a rod of this price range can give such great tip action while at the same time having enough back bone to land a 15# Rainbow Trout fighting for it's life. Don't hesitate, this is a great rod! Well worth the money and then some!
Great Rod At A Decent Price
I own three of these rods, a light, medium light, and medium. I like the way they look and cast. They're light in my hands. I didn't like the long Type B handle though. As soon as I received the ML and M, I cut the cork handle back to 5". I use the 7'6" light for trout streams, the 9'6" medium light for small rivers/ponds, and the 8'6" medium for larger bodies. The two lighter rods handle trout and larger bass with no problems. I'm waiting to hook a decent sized northern pike on the medium to see how it handles that type of pull. I always keep my rods in cases when not actually in use and ANY rod tip will snap off if you're walking through the woods and jam it into a pine tree...These rods are perfect for someone who sees no sense in owning a $300 spinning rod...
a good rod for the money

got the 7' , Had it for a few weeks and it's already seen a few lakes and have helped me land quite a few trout and a nice 3 lb mackinaw. Used it for trolling and casting from the bank. Nice light rod.
Okuma Celilo Rod

I purchased this rod from Fish USA and was very happy with the product. I received it quicker than I would which was a plus. The rod was alot more than I was expecting since it's built and handles better than my more expensive rods
Celilo = Crappie Slaying SOB. Period.
by Dustin t.
I first purchased the 8' version of this rod. At first I didn't like the rod at all but once I used the rod I fell in love. I would love to have 1$ for every crappie I have caught on it. This rod will cast a 1/32 ounce jig like a dream, super sensitive and durable. I have landed some very nice buffalo and carp that decided to nab my crappie jigs. I take this rod with me everywhere I go. in the future I am going to order a shorter one for tight spots and another 8 footer. If I broke this rod I would probably cry to be honest.
Great customer service. Had 1 damaged and they quickly took care of it and was not a big hassle!

Fast Shipping and a nice little rod for the price.
Fantastic for trout and creek fishing
I have owned this rod for 4 years and have not been that careful with it. Its been dropped, stepped on a couple times and accidentally whacked against a couple trees, and it still has held up very well. Not that its meant to do any of that and you may have a different experience but I cannot speak highly enough of this and all my other Okuma gear.
Most Excellent Rods - Super Packaging - Shipping A+
by James Darrell Fultz
Excellent rods. Ordered 3 in the 6’6” and right out the box I am very impressed. FishUSA did a very most excellent job in packaging these rods and shipping was timely. I can tell that this company takes pride in their shipping department. A+ and I will be ordering more of these rods and other equipment. Thank you for providing these rods fir an affordable working man’s price. God bless.
I love this rods. I have 6'6" and 5'
Okay, I have tested 5' Celilo against 5' Spinmatic-d and 5' Cherrywood.
<br>casting and sensitivity. Worst performance on everything. However I find myself packing this rod often when I go to fish. Sensitivity can be fixed by using braid. Slow near moderate action. If you ask what rod wins in that competition - Spinmatic-D, but still far behind Triumph 5'.
<br>Why 5 stars ? I love this rod.
