Better than older model
by browntroutnywatershed -
I do like this new model better than the past one,,but I do not trust new guides,,look cheap! Otherwise a great value for the price and have used it with slip bobber with small minnows for panfish/bass! A very enjoyable fight when u hook a 2lb or better fish.
Great rod at a great price
This rod is an excellent float fishing rod for trout and steelhead. I’ve used it for the past 4 years without any issues. The light action rod is sensitive yet strong enough to land 8lb steelhead (I only use 4lb test line). I’ve had no problems with the guides or grip. I also use it to fish minnows under a float for bass and crappie. You can’t beat this rod for the price.
First trip out to float some skein for fall salmon in Kenosha WI & the top portion of the rod cracked 30 minutes in. I love Okuma's salmon gear but this rod is a DUD

First time using & the top section of the rod shatters for no apparent reason. Okuma wants $20 to replace a $60 rod that broke on my FIRST TRIP OUT. Thank God I didn't lose a giant salmon because of this piece of junk rod
