Don't Waste Your Money... (from prior model)
Pros: Good Tip Action, Sensitive
Cons: Breaks Easily, Poor Construction
Best Uses: Small Fish
Comments: I bought this rod through FishUSA and I was excited to try this for Steelhead in Michigan. The very first time I took this out in 2009 the rod broke within one hour of making casts....The rod just shattered on my casting on 3/30/09. JBI replaced my rod very quickly and I kept the rod in the sleeve (never took the replacement rod fishing) until 04/09/10 to once again fish for Steelhead. Within one hour of fishing the rod shattered again in the same spot...Not a coincidence...This rod is made in China...Don't waste your money...I now have to fight to get JBI to return my money plus the shipping and handling to me. I would not put any money towards this rod at all...You'll be sorry..!! FishUSA can't get rods right now due to manufacturing problems...Geez I wonder why!!!

Good Rod   (from prior model)
Pros: Sensitive, Accurate Casting, Easy To Transport, Durable
Best Uses: Any fish you deem fit
Comments: Great rod for the money. Had one other one that I used like crazy, but the cork handle got loose. For the money and good quality I had to buy another. Bear in mind I had the first one for over 3 years, and used it for just about anything I thought it could handle. Even caught some Flatheads pushing 20lbs with it. I probably abused it more than I should have, otherwise I probably wouldn't have had to buy another. Awesome rod!

Daiichi Salmon Egg Hooks

Daiichi Salmon Egg Hooks were developed for fishing with bait, but are now also being used for artificial bait. Known as an egg hook, this style is generally used by trout and anglers using natural salmon eggs as bait. Today's fly tiers create artificial egg patterns to simulate salmon eggs and many prefer this hook style because the up-eye does not close off the hook gape and the angle of pull enhances hook-ups.
