I own every model of the Micro Series, and have for been buying them for years (ever since the 4'6" came with a blue UL reel).  (from prior model)
Pros: best performance for the price, Great action, handles very light lures, durable
Cons: Inserts can get grooves from line after time, No UL in 5'6" or 6'6" models
Best Uses: Light line fishing, Budget fishing
Comments: I won every size in this series. For $20, you cannot beat this rod. While I tend to target smaller species, I have landed numerous cats, Coho, Pinks, and LMB without any issues. I mentioned groves in the inserts above in the cons, but I found that this only occurs when fishing fast moving waters where there is constant tension on the tip. Although I often fish with middle shelf rods like 13Fishing and the Daiwa, I enjoy taking a Micro Series rod or two along to use when I need to throw a small lure, spoon, or jig. My favorite model of the Micro Series is the 4'6". I use this rod for small lakes and streams which house a ton of overhang. Give this rod a try. If you find you do not like it, your only out $20. For those on a tight budget who are looking to pair this rod with an inexpensive reel that lasts, you cannot find one better than the Pflueger Trion. Size 20 for 6'6" and under. 7' UL and 7'6" UL rods, move up to a Trion size 25 for better balance. The 7' L go with a size 30.

UL 7'6" rod   (from prior model)
Pros: Great action
Cons: no life time warranty
Best Uses: light lures
Comments: Don't expect a $300.00 durability and action on a $20.00 rod. But it works great for what I do with it. 1 - 5 lb trout are a blast with this rod and 2-6 lb braid

MS 702L (from prior model)
Pros: long, light weight, durable, guides attached well
Cons: foam butt
Best Uses: panfish, light lures
Comments: I have a 7' MS 702L, and purchased it over a handful of years ago. I'm not sure if they have made any improvements or changes to this rod since, the picture looks similar. This rod is really impressive and has sold me on Shakespeare rods. If I was to replace this rod, I'd buy another. I've been using it with 4-6lb line to pull medium sized bass, and walleye out of a spillway, and all of my pan fishing. The guides are cheep stainless, but are attached to the blank very well. The only improvement I would like to see on this $20 rod is to replace the foam butt with a plastic butt. The foam can get damaged too easily; I've had that happen with previous rods.

nice rod for the $$$   (from prior model)
Pros: light action, affordable 7'6", handles very light lures
Cons: maybe just a tiny bit soft
Best Uses: trout & panfish
Comments: Fished the 7'6" UL model for the first time this week. Fished spinners, spoons and plugs betwween 1/32 and 1/4 oz. Took me a little while to get used to the softer casting stroke. But now it's my favorite trout lake rod and only twenty bucks!

HAMFIST
One of the best deals out there (from prior model)
Pros: best performance for the price
Cons: no snob appeal or St. Croix logo, etc.
Best Uses:
Comments: I own a number of rods from this product line, ranging from the shortest to the longest. I use them on crappie, bass and bluegill, catching the occasional musky. I am a kayak fisherman, and do not like to spend much on rods as they are always at some risk. But with these rods, you get first-class performance at a price point that allows you to fish them hard and regularly without worrying if one of them gets yanked from the tether by a large fish. Sensitivity is wonderful.Form, function, stress-free.

Shakespeare micro series rod   (from prior model)
Pros: Great performance, Price
Best Uses:
Comments: I really like the rod for crappie. It is very sensitive and you can see and feel the lightest bite, but it also has plenty of backbone when that big bass jumps on your lure. The long cork handle sets well in a rod holder but also feels great in your hands. This rod is really well balanced with an ultra light spinning reel. It is inexpensive but I can't see spending a lot more money for very similar performance. Great buy

Not all rod manufacturers place such information on every rod series. Shakespeare has provided this information for our product page, but as you noted, this is not printed on the rods themselves.
