Great value   (from prior model)
Pros: Limited lifetime warranty
Cons: Shoddy workmanship
Best Uses:
Comments: This rod (I have the 8'6 MH power, fast action) was about what I expected for the price. Nice and light with a soft tip, but with plenty of power for throwing heavier spoons/cankbaits/lead. The rod has more than enough backbone and length to control salmon and steelhead in the 10-20 pound range. I like the rod and would recommend it to someone who wants a serviceable salmon rod for a decent price, but it does not measure up to the more expensive rods in the same category. As light as this rod is, it could easily be lighter. The handle and reelseat assembly is fairly minimalist, though saving weight here does little to improve the feel of the rod. The upside of the barely-there reelseat is it makes my reels easier to palm. The guides, on the other hand, are over-sized. More than half of them are double-footed, and the guide closest to the reel is so big it almost looks like a spinning rod guide. I would have preferred a slightly higher pricetag to go along with higher quality and lighter weight guides. While lighter guides might only decrease the weight of the rod by a fraction of an ounce, the fact that the guide weight is distributed along the length of the rod would make the rod *feel* much lighter. As for the quality of the components and workmanship, you get exactly what you pay for: a Chinese-assembled rod. One of the guides on my rod was inexplicably epoxied on slightly crooked. While this isn't enough to make a difference in the rod's performance, it annoys me every time I look at it. In addition, the epoxy on the ferrule of the tip half of my rod had a small chip in it. Again, this has no impact on performance but it annoys me nonetheless. The cork in the handle and foregrip is obviously medium grade and dotted with patches of wood filler. The bottom line on this rod is that it will do the jobs it is designed for admirably at a affordable price. Unfortunately, it only gets a 4/5 from me because of workmanship issues and poor guide design. Perhaps I'm being harsh, but I would give this rod a 3/5 if it didn't have a limited lifetime warranty. If you want a work of art, get a high-end St. Croix or Loomis. If you want a value and aren't bothered by imperfections, go with the Clarus.

Top End....Great Pole   (from prior model)
Pros: Light and strong.
Best Uses: Steelhead and Salmon Plunking
Comments: I was looking for something sturdy enough to handle steelhead and salmon but with enough feel to it that you could plunk and feel the bait working. I shopped hard and this is the best pole for the money. Very well built and beautiful to look at. Five stars.
