Used this rod all last week in the Salmon River, good bend and still enough backbone to stop hard running salmon and a few nice steelhead. Overall a great rod.

Great deal on a float rod

Got this on sale as a back up float rod, but I really like the quality workmanship, price, and how balanced it feels(for the price of course). Way better than what I was expecting for what I paid, so I am very pleased. Out of the box it looks like one of my St. Croix rods, but way lighter. Definitely a rod you can cast all day. Will be buying extras for presents this year, as you can't beat the price.

Got a pair on sale , replaced some 20+ year old Pinnacle rods that both broke same day. I hope these last half as long! Great dinner collector rods.
wild spinning rod
bought one on a recent trip to mi. used it with both centerpin and spinning reel in a 12 ft drift boat because my pin rod was too long, great rod for the unbelievable price , ( I paid $ 45 at a shop because I was out of town didn't have time to order it , it was a good deal at that price , at your price awsome ) very light in your hand but not a mushy action, cast well with light weight and small float

WSSP1062UL is an excellent rod!

I was looking for a nice rod for steelhead that's a light action and longer than 10' for drift fishing and float fishing. I decided to give the WSSP1062UL a try as it is 10'6" and had the "D" handle with the shorter butt piece and a longer handle above the reel, which I really like compared to having the long butt piece and virtually no handle above the reel with the "C" handle format. Really makes drifting and float fishing a lot easier/nicer holding the rod for extended periods this way for me. I feel the Action is more of a Light action than an Ultra Light action. Which is good as I was worried it would be too much of a flimsy noodle rod at the Ultra light power, but I have caught some nice 8-10 lb steelhead on this rod and love how it handles the fish. I never felt worried about the rod being under-powered or snapping at any point. Rod loaded very well and handled the strong fresh run fish with no problems! Very happy with my purchase!
9ft Med - Light Wild series rod

Bought this rod in early February, had a buddy tell me that they're nice rods but the tips break really easily. 2nd trip out had the rod in the boat and pulled up on the rod with a little bend at the tip of the rod. All I heard was SNAP!!! Definitely a great rod for steelhead and salmon but don't go on the water with just this rod. Not worth the risk. All around great rod and feel but the durability is just not there.
9' ML is a great skein fishing rod

This rod is a great low price option for fishing skein for salmon, the rod loads up very well. Along with, its high quality guides for the price.
Suspicious quality, good rod for the price.

Bad QA process. I've read other comments mentioning broken rods. My rod just arrived with broken tip. FishUSA solved the issue in a perfect way, so I definitely recommend buying in this store. Regarding the rod, I fixed it and took for fishing: it broke on the second cast in a different part of the blank; it was with a very light lure, so the problem was that the cast was a bit fast; too much for the blank. My order included two rods and the second one seems to work fine so far, so that's why I think that it's not a design issue but just bad QA process. The one that works is OK, if you consider the price you may think that it's a great rod, but only if you consider the price, I don't think it outperforms other more expensive rods. These are very slow blanks and a bit on the heavy side. If you are looking for a rod that casts a wide range of weight this is may be a good option, as far as you don't get one of the bad lot. Again, thanks to FisuuSA for outstanding customer service.
I bought the 9' medium light rod for trout and walleye fishing.
<br>The rod tip broke in three pieces on the fourth cast throwing 1/4 oz jig.
