Every so often a company will come along and break the status quo. They will do things a bit differently. They’ll tell you fishing does not have to be a pastime, and that quality fishing equipment is not reserved for the wealthy. 13 Fishing believes just that, and the proof is in their new line of quality fishing rods. 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 a 13 fishing 6'7" medium heavy, fast action Omen Black rod last spring. I was really happy with it, a lot sensitive, a bit like the fealing the Abu Garcia Vendetta gives you, but its not an Abu. Book closed it has the best backbone I ever saw and that made the casting a little bit more selective with the casting distance, because the backbone could not kick it and it was a short rod at the same time. Unfortunatly, I broke the rod by mistake in July and I am still looking foward for a new one.

Comments: I have 5 rods from 13 Fishing, 4 of which are the Omen Black models. These rods are incredible, especially for the price. They are super sensitive for a $100 rod. They also are very light weight. The powers and actions are exactly what they say. The guides are very durable and hold up against braid well. The reel seat is great. It allows maximum contact with the black. Overall, these rods are the best you can buy for the price.

Comments: Bought the 7'11" for punchin. Does the job but could use a longer butt section. Caught a few fish and the sensitivity seemed decent.
From: Kevin: USA 11/5/14
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.

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!!!
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. 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! In 13 Fishing's defense, I didn't contact them to tell them their rod broke on the 2nd cast. Who knows, 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: 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.
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: 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.
