I'm Pleased with this IM8 rod. Fuji seats cork handles, zircon guides.. At this price point the rod is a good value and attractively done. Chrome finish on the guide braces is just ok. The upper section on mine has a wayward bend to it that offsets the rod slightly. I don't think this is the norm for these and Okuma offered to warranty it. The warranty is upgraded to lifetime by the company by the way. They are responsive to inquiry. Outside of the small issue I think this rod will do well. Has enough power to get light baits out there as rated but wont throw much more without some effort. For a light stream trout rod in 7 ft I'm pretty happy with the action and feel overall. Its nicely finished and has a sweet action similar to some domestic rods I own.
This rod rocks!

Seems well made
Have yet to use, winter time in the midwest. Looks to be well made. Can't wait to get a chance to try it out. If the rod performs well and holds up will revise my rating upward.
One word SWEET

Bought the SST S 1062ML to replace a more expensive float rod that is worn out after two seasons of steelhead fishing. Tried it out today on my favorite Lake Erie steelhead trib, steelies are gone, but the smallmouth bass gave me a good work out. Rod is very strong, flexible and has good power to easily handle 2-3 pound fish and it should also tame steelies. A real pleasure to use and I would recommend it for stream fishing. And as usual, great service from FishUSA.

This is a great rod for this kind of money, it has great casting ability and is very strong I purchased the float drifting SST-S-1062M rod and I like its action.
