Great value! (from prior model)
Pros: Light, powerful.

Another great Shimano product   (from prior model)
Pros: Light, sensitive
Comments: Not as flexible as the Convergence but just as good. Coupled with the Okuma Trio and 15lb. Power Pro and a 1oz. sinker she sets the standard. Fishing croaker in this area everyone was using heavy rods except me and trust me she pulled them in!

Excellent all-around salmon/steelhead   (from prior model)
Pros: Accurate Casting, Durable, Good Tip Action, Sensitive
Best Uses: River Fishing, Pier Fishing
Comments: Great for a beginner or someone who wants a salmon rod that can handle a steel head if one gets on. I have both handle styles in the 9', one is better for bait fishing the other better for casting all day. Both are great off the pier or in the river and light and sensitive enough to also work when I am salmon fishing but instead find the perch.

Greg
nice rod   (from prior model)
Pros: Sensitive, Good Tip Action
Best Uses: Ocean Fishing, River Fishing, Small Fish
Comments: Bought this rod for small pretadory fishing in the Mediterranean sea. Such as sea bass and barracuda. Great rod for its price, very light and ballances with 2500-4000 sized shimano reels. It has a very sensitive tip and a stiff body. Cool graphite color and sexy guide wrapping, far greater than the older clarus model. this rod could have been improved if the backgrip was a bit shorter than it is..since it's a bit too long for its action (1/4-1 oz)
