Introducing the Omen Black Series Casting Rods.

Featuring unbelievable actions designed with the assistance of FLW Tour pro, Stetson Blaylock, the 13 Fishing Omen Black Series Casting Rods feature Japanese 30-ton Toray carbon fiber blanks, which are rolled with the precision of a surgical instrument.

Comments: I bought this rod for flipping and throwing jigs/texas rigged baits. Unfortunately, this couldn't hold the jockstrap of the Powell rods I own. At only a $40 dollar difference between this and Powell I would have expected much higher quality. I won't own another. The major downfall here is both in the rod blank and the finger trigger on the rod. Make sure you test one before you decide to buy.

From: Zach: Abingdon, MD 10/21/14

Comments: THE best rods on the market, period! I own three of them, 7-1 MH, and 7-3 M and H. Each is incredibly sensitive. I have used the 7-3 H the most, it is amazing for jigs and frogs. That being said, the 7-1 MH is the most versatile. There is not a type of lure I can't use it with. I use it mostly for swim jigs and chatterbaits and have been extremely impressed. It even has enough power for frogs. I've liked the medium power the least, BUT that is because I personally prefer rods with a little more power. I also feel the handle is a little too short. Second best part is the handle grip... Extremely ergonomic!!! And the best part? Can't beat the price. I can't wait to buy many more. GET THIS ROD! Tight lines!

From: Tom: Barnes, WI 10/6/14

Comments: I was a little skeptical about buying a rod without seeing and holding it first. However, my skepticism was quickly forgotten once my order arrived. I liked it so much I ordered a second baitcaster and a spinning rod. These are very good rods at a great price.

From: John: Atlanta, GA 10/5/14

Comments: The medium actions are great for working reaction baits especially because of the smaller butt section. The butt section is about 2" shorter than a similar Duckett rod.  These are the best value on the market period!

From: Reggie: Franklin, NC 9/29/14

Comments: I love this rod except for the small but section. If 13 would make a rod with a but section that was competitive with others this would be the best rod on the market. Please make a longer but.

From: Justin: GA 7/30/14

Comments: I love my 13 Omen rod! Very solid backbone, and most importantly for me, light weight. Not to mention the look of this rod is great, for what it's worth!

From: Matt: Hebron, KY 4/3/14

Comments: I hope they don't raise the price on these things, I'm on my second and waiting for the tax sale for a new 7'11", that should be a beast. I have the 7'1" m and mh in casting, and they are used more than anything else I own. Especially the MH, I can fish just about anything around here with that stick. Love these rods.

From: Garry: Springfield, MO 3/29/14

Comments: I bought the 7'1 MH and was very excited to fish this rod after reading all the great reviews.  Mine snapped on the 2nd cast throwing a 3/8 OZ crankbait (No, it wasn't a technique error).  Now if I ship it back to 13 Fishing and pay the return shipping I'll have around $140 tied up in a $99 rod that I'm not sure I even want anymore!!  Maybe it was just a bad blank but I'm not going to throw another 40 bucks away to find out...I think I'll just consider it lesson learned and buy something else. In 13 Fishing's defense, I didn't contact them to tell them their rod broke on the 2nd cast...who know's, they might have paid to send a new one.  I just didn't feel like going through the hassle to get another Omen.

From: Jerry: Caldwell, ID 3/27/14

Comments: very impressed with the rod. I work at a fishing store. I can fish with any rod that I want to but I bought two one 67 mh and the other 610 m. They are very light and good sensitivity caught good fish with both very impress

From: Jacob: Jackson, MS 3/26/14

Comments: got the 7'6"MH and this thing is a beast. Light, sensitive, and power. Paired it with a EXO 100 and balances nice. Love the way the grip is designed, doesn't feel uncomfortable at all. I checked for rough spots but there weren't any. Caught one small fish off of it while fishing an IKA and setting the hook skipped him out of the water. Great rod and nice quality.

From: Will: Long Beach, CA 3/26/14

Comments: When i got my 7'3" med. rod i was very excited. i almost ordered another one without ever even fishing with the first one. After learning that 3 of my friends had there rods break before they ever made a cast. I am thinking of sending my rod back before i take the tags off and put a reel on it.

From: Matthew: New Fairfield, CT 3/26/14

Comments: Best 100 dollar rod on the market.  I own the 7'1" Heavy action omen black. This rod is far more sensitive than my phenix recon 2 at a price tag of 75 dollars less. The rod is comfortable with a good balance point once a reel is seated. I would recommend this rod to the most novice fisherman or the most experienced. The 30 ton graphite blank comes to life in hand.

From: Eric: Houston, TX 3/24/14

Comments: Update on my last review: I have been out a few times with the rod and am liking it so far. Loads up nicely and is good sensitivity wise, however the handle could be a few inches longer. I like the use two hands to cast anything-just a habit-and the handle is kinda awkward, however I can manage and won't be bothered by it. Haven't caught anything yet as the water is still literally like 35 degrees. I would also love to see a full cork omen but doubt it will ever happen. I think I will buy another soon!

From: Chris: ME 3/18/14

Comments: I've been really impressed with the  omen line from 13 fishing. I've got the 7'11" h and it makes a great frog/flip rod and a 7'3" mh which is a great all around rod.

From: Tony: Cencal 3/17/14

Comments: I have the 7-3 Medium Omen and I love it.  It's really hard to find a rod that is over 7 with medium power and fast action.  The longer length helps when throwing swimbait, flukes, jigs, froggies, on the bassboat, but the extra length is great when fishing out my yak too.  I don't have to worry about Mr. Bass running under the yak or switching sides.  This rod is a very well put together rod.  Looks swag too.  I just ordered another one and will probably order another.  Best rod for the money, hands down.  Go ahead and spend more money...don't know that you would  be getting much more though.

From: Jamie: Irmo, SC 3/14/14

Comments: This rod is awesome. Incredibly lightweight and balanced. I have the 7'1"M casting rod paired with an Abu Garcia Revo SX and it performs beautifully. Like using it more than my Duckett White Ice. Will definitely be getting another in the future.

From: Tyler: Parkersburg, WV 3/13/14

Comments: I own two of these rods in the 6'7 MH and they are awesome. Landed a 7.9 lb largemouth and pulled him out of the brush with ease. The rod is extremely lightweight yet it has the backbone to tame any fish in the lake. I like that they offer a lot of intermediate lengths because I generally use shorter rods for fishing close quarters on my home lake.

From: Kevin: Triad, NC 3/11/14

Comments: I have not fished it yet, but boy am I excited to throw some jerks, top waters and mini squarebills on the 7'1" medium. Perfect craftsmanship. Beautiful.

From: Chris: ME 2/28/14

Comments: I bought a spinning rod version and was impresses now added a casting rod and am going to add more as times and money allow.  Great looking rod n light as a feather you cannot come close to this quality for $99  I would. Snap one or two up before popularity causes price to rise.

From: Fatswarcat: Paradox, PA

Comments: I have the 7'3" M&MH, the sensitivity is good for the price and love the action.  Between these 2 rods you can fish almost everything except big cranks and swimbaits. The only negative I have with these rods is the small grip, I find it uncomfortable throwing 1/2oz + lures on long cast.

From: Brandon: Bryan, TX

Comments: Im very pleased with 13 fishing rods! I got the 7'1 casting rod last mouth. when I used it. I new I had to have the spinning rod! I very happy with them both! I recommend 13 fishing rods!

From: Craig: SC

Comments: Best 100 dollar rod bar none. I mean, the best. Not one of the best, not top 3, THE BEST. If you're thinking about getting this rod, don't think, just get it. 13 fishing also has stellar customer service. I had one rod snap from a freak accident, I sent it back, replaced it for free.

From: Jerry: Cary, NC

Comments: 13 Fishing Omen Black Casting Rod 7'3" Medium.  This rod has an excellent feel to it.  I paired a Lews speed spool, and I am extremely happy with the way this rod feels and performs.  I fish duckett, halo, g-loomis, and shimano rods.  I like to experiment, and this rod is almost one of my favorites.  I have used it for drop shot and square bills and it performs perfectly for me.  Price is great, and the comfort of this rod is what I love the best.  Fits my hand perfectly.

From: Allen: FW, TX

Comments: I got this rod back in the spring of 2013. Have used it for one year. The rod has held up great. I got the 7foot3 H power. First fish was a 20bl plus drum on Ky Lake. This rod handled it with no problem. Nice rod for the money.

From: Mike: Cincinnati, OH

Comments: the other reviews are spot on.  Ultra light rod, but the butt end is a little short.  The action on the 6 foot 7 inch is not very fast.

From: Matt: Moweaqua

Comments: Great rod! Got the med/hev 7'3" rod for Christmas and have been fishing with it a few time! very light and cool looking

From: Jacob: Medina, Tn 

Comments: I just bought the 7'3 medium.  I love this pole! Light, fast, you can feel everything. Casts great, looks great, I paired it with an AG Orra SX and 30lb Daiwa braid.  What a great set up!

From: David: Garden Grove, CA. USA

Comments: best rods I have ever had I got the 7'1" heavy for frogging and flipping. I used it at one of my ponds caught about 20 on the same set up. I put a Abu Garcia pro max on it. Great price. Buy with confidence

From: Jason: Livingston AL

Comments: I have the 7-3 MH spooled with 50 lb PowerPro. I use it for jigs and topwater frogs. This rod is light, sensitive, and powerful. I do wish it had a bet faster/lighter tip when pitching jigs though.

From: Ryan

Comments: I bought the 7,3 mh. Best rod I've ever bought for the price you can't beat it. Compared it to a loomis gl2 and the omen was more sensative. Overall amazing! Rod.

From: Taylor: AL

Comments: Love this rod  I got the 7'11" heavey for pitching a brush hog into lay downs. Sensitive, well balanced and tough.  I hooked a 21 incher under a log and had to drag in a 4 foot log half way back to the boat to get the fish. I will buy more Omen Black Rods!

From: Randy: Hastings Nebraska

Comments: these rods are very impressive for the money maybe the best I have used,  I will purchase more of them

From: Scott: FYFFE,AL.

Comments: Love, Love, Love these rods.I own the 7'3" MH, 6'7" MH, and 7'3" Heavy. They are light, well balanced, senstive,and tough! I pulled a 10 lb 32inch snakehead covered in hydrilla out of a thick grass mat with my 7'3" MH no problem. I bought the 7'3" H for froggin. I'm not very good at walkin a frog and I think the tip is a little stiff for froggin but i was able to walk it well enough to catch another 30" snakehead on a Koppers frog.

From: Cameron: Manassas, va

Comments: Loving this rod, just ordered my second (7'1" MH). Thought the handle was a bit thin at first (have large hands), found over a dozen trips or so, that its become one of my facorites. Might be the reel seat, just feels great with the zillion on top. First one I got was a 7'3" M, seems to have more power than other M rods in my boat.

From: Rick: Lake Placid, FL

Comments: I have the 6.7 medium omen. It's is by far the best rod I have used for topwater walking baits. I have many other higher priced rods after using this rod all the rest just feel heavy!! By far the best for the money on the market!!

From: Adam: Anniston, Al, US

Comments: Worst rods I have ever owned. First rod a 7'1 medium rod broke on the fifth fish caught 2.5 pounder. The 13 rod company told me they would send a new rod for free if I paid for shipping did that and they still charged my credit card 50 dollars. Got the second rod and it broke a month later flipping a 14 inch bass in the boat. I will never buy 13 omen again spend a little more and buy falcon have not broke a one of them.

From: Jack: Carbondale Il.

Comments: i purchased 2-7'1" mh Omen Black rods, excellent grip and feel, the best rod by far for the money. i broke one, Oops! and they shipped me another rod right away, Excellent service, i will buy again.

From: terrence: steubenville, ohio usa

Comments: 7'11. It leaves blisters on palm and pinkie finger. If you fish 4 to 5 times per week or long tourneys this simply isnt acceptable.

From: Justin: GA

Comments: amazing rod light and very sensitive but the insert in the top guide broke out after a few days of good fishing so I don't know if I got a defective one or what

From: Jacob: New London Wisconsin

Comments: I got the 7'1 MH model as a gift to use as a versatile rod, spinner baits, small plastic swimbaits, texas rigs, buzz baits, light pitching, etc. I thought the rod is good for a $100 rod, but don't think it's the best thing since sliced bread. My top guide broke on the first trip and I can't feel the blades turning on spinnerbaits as well as I can on the Abu Vengeance I was buying this rod to replace. The rod is light and feels great in my hand, but not as sensitive as I had hoped.

From: Adam: Bowling Green, KY

Comments: awesome rods ofr the money extremely senative and durable.  i have the 7'11" and 7'3". the 7'11" i use for my umbrella rig rod and i love it more than any other.

From: Josh: chattanooga, tn  usa

Comments: Great rod with good back bone and nice tip. Feels great and have caught big bass with this rod

From: Sang: Madison, WI

Comments: Purchased the MH 7'3" for throwing a frog.  Got out today and killed them missing only one caught fish to 5 lbs and handled them like a dream.  The tip is soft enough to throw the frog way back and has enough backbone to pull the big ones out of the brush.  I will be buying more to replace my other rods.

From: Lynn: AZ

Comments: I have the 7'1" mh and its unbelievable. I have caught well over 70 LMB over 15" in the past 4 days on an all terrain football jig.

From: Adam: WI

Comments: have 2 7'1 mh and are great rods caught lots of 3-5lbers and have been very impressed very light as well also tip snapped on on 13 fishing handled it quickly and sent a new rod

From: Ross: Tulsa ok

Comments: I now have the 7'1" in both MH and H and I absolutely love them. Sensitive tip with plenty of backbone. I fish weekly tournaments and I cast both of these rods for hours and they are very comfortable. You cannot find a better rod in this price range, period. I highly recommend these rods.

From: Dan: Pekin IL, USA

Comments: Bought the 7'1" medium and loving it. got in to a school of 10lb stripers and she performed excellent. very light and balanced as well.

From: Charles: KY

Comments: Got the 7'3" H to use as a pitching rod. I have had it since December and it is an extremely sensitive rod. It had enough backbone to pull a 5 and about 5 lb of weeds out of cover and it came with ease. Rod is very light. I used gl2 before this rod. Selling them to get 2 more of these. Great buy, if you dont have one, get one

From: Matt: IL

Comments: Came back for round two (and the Memorial Day sale). Purchased a 7'3" MH back in February, been throwing the rod every trip since it arrived. Absolutely love the tip action on the rod, makes throwing a 1/2 oz football jig seem like nothing. This time I went for the 7'1" M...needing something a bit shorter for my treble hook baits. Excited!

From: Brian: Springfield, MO

Comments: Purchased the 7'6" MH and on its maiden voyage I broke it on the 3rd cast with a senko...Warranty time.

From: Alan: Ca Delta

Comments: purchased this rod today and loving it. Took it out and caught 2 northern and a few bass. Very light and sensitive and also strong enough backbone. I got a 7'1 MH and It feels light as my other Loomis rods. I would recommend this rod to anybody for a affordable price you can't beat. Might get a few more cause its that GOOD!!!

From: AVwj: Minneapolis, MN

Comments: Had the 7ft 6 omen black rod and snapped it boat flipping a 4lber in the everglades, but before that I swung numerous big fish. I have the warranty and they sent me a brand new one for $50.

From: Nick: South Florida

Comments: Awesome rod. I have a 7'1 MH paired up with my Gen 3 STX and wow...what a sweet combo. This rod screams quality from top to bottom. Great rods, and an absolute steal at this price. 13 Fishing has gained a fan.

From: Jason: Dandridge TN USA

Comments: I was a bit of a skeptic at first because I wasn't familiar with the company. I primarily buy St. Croix, but decided to give 'em a try. Man am I glad I did! Everything about the rods are excellent. Well construction all around and very affordable. Definitely going to add these to my collection! Great product 13 Fishing!!!

From: Mike: IL

Comments: best rod ive used to date, has excellent sensitivity for a rod at this price ,excellent balance, very nice handle, guides, the list goes on and on. one sweet rod! i just put in an order for two more.

From: John: AZ

Comments: This hat is great! fits perfect and dosn't get dirty easy even though it is white. 13 fishing also makes the best rod i have ever used.

From: Trevor: FL

Comments: love these rods, man are they amazing, MH is perfect for just about everything that dosnt have treble hooks, and the medium's work perfect for trebles and smaller baits like grubs and shakey heads. handle is a tad short, but surprisingly it tucks nice under your arm and is very comfortable. best $100 ive spent in a LONG TIME. cant wait for next paycheck so i can pick up a 7'6 and a 7'1 spinning

From: John: Northern California

Comments: best rods I've ever used, started out with a 7'1" mh rod now have 6'10" m, 7'1"mh, 7'3"h, 7'6"mh and love all of them (I build my own custom jigs do the 7'6" and 7'3" usually got more of a work out ) for the price you can't beat them period.

Comments: had a veritas, thought that was nice, fished this and it put that veritas to shame. for $100 this is the best rod under $200 you can buy. i don't see how the can sell em for this cheep! if your gonna try one, i would recommend the 7'1MH or 7'3MH

From: Austin: TX

Comments: the 7'1" M and loved it. Extremely versatile. Bought the 7'6" MH and it is outstanding for pitching.  I caught a 5 on the flipping stick and it handled her no problem.  Sensitivity is much better than the Loomis GL2 I tried. At this point these are the only rods I'm buying.  The price and performance on these rods is exactly what I have been wanting.

From: Larry: Charlotte

Comments: Just got the 7'3" M.  I am very impressed with the rod - weight, balance, construction, are all very good.  The action is fast to very fast with a nice forgiving tip, yet enough backbone for larger fish.  This is a great buy for 109.  Can't wait to get it on the lake.

From: Ben: OH

Comments: Just got my 7'1 MH and all i can say is WOW! Light,feel good in your hand ...for 100$ this rod cant be beat! I like this rod more then my phenix mbx classic

From: Sam: Longbeach, CA

Comments: Purchased the 7ft 6 rod about a month ago, first trip out at okeechobee. Went to my favorite stretch of matted up bullrushes with spawning fish all around. I was boat flipping 4's and 5's no problem, love the rod, awesome action and the perfec amount of backbone to boat flip pigs!

From: Nich: South Florida

Comments: These rods are amazing. I have two now and am looking at buying several more when I can get all my other rods sold. They are balanced extremely well. The componets are amazing. And they look great to boot. You'll not find a better rod at this price point. 13 is the best, hands down.

From: Daniel: Morgantown, KY

Comments: Wow! Bought 7'1" M for fishing shad raps this spring and shakey heads this summer.  This rod is the real deal!  Balance is great and the overall look/craftmanship is outstanding for the money.  Can't wait to use it!

From: Larry: Charlotte, NC

Comments: I just received my OMEN OBC7'1MH and it is just as the other reviewers have stated,a SWEET rod at this price point.This rod is as nice as rods coting $200-300.Cant wait to try it out.If you don't have one,get one now. Best $100 i've spent.

From: Tony: West Chester, PA

Comments: These rods are very light feel great. Bought one, used it, went back and bought two more. Cant beat them for the money.
