Abu Garcia designed the Veritas Series Casting Rods (Veritas means “truth” in Latin) to provide anglers with truly lightweight quality rods - without any of the hype or high price tags. Featuring extremely lightweight designs with a focus on balance and compression strength, the Veritas Series Rod blanks were constructed from super-sensitive 30-ton graphite integrated with Abu Garcia’ new Nano Technology.  Nano Technology manipulates graphite on an atomic level for greatly reduced weight and 20% increased compression strength over standard graphite. 

The premium Titanium-alloy Guides with SiC Inserts, designed by a new company Evolve, are engineered to Abu Garcia’s exacting standards.  Offering excellent durability, they also sit closer to the rod blank for fewer line management issues.  A proprietary Reel Seat provides increased contact with the blank for greater sensitivity transfer, and a Split Grip handle design with super dense EVA grips also helps reduce weight and expertly balance out each rod right at your hands.  Delivering unparalleled performance at a price that is hard to beat, the Abu Garcia Veritas Casting Rods are the same rods Bassmaster Elite Series standout, Mike Iaconelli, uses to compete at the highest levels of competitive bass fishing. 

-Backed by 3-year limited warranty

Comments: I've got 2 Veritas rods and have had them for 2 years. I like the sensitivity of both. As others on here have mentioned, the "metal ring" that secures the reel (Revo's) to the rod comes loose. I actually used pliers to tighten it EVER SO GENTLY. I bought these rods when they weren't on sale. Still use them to launch 5/8 oz lipless into the next zip code. Haven't been fortunate enough to boat swing anything larger than 5 lbs on board.... This is NOT recommended & may void warranty.

From: Steve: Lady Lake, FL 12/21/14

Comments: I have nine of these rods. The oldest being three years old. I am relatively rough on my gear. I have yet to break one. They are relative stiff initially, but seem to become more limber with use. Quality control seems spotty however. I've seen some that have disoriented guides and loose reel seats. It should be noted that I've never received a defective rod from tacklewarehouse. The finish on these rods is very thin and tends to wear out around the hook keeper pretty fast. Nearly all the rods have nicks and scratches in them where the finish is starting to flake. Other than those issues I haven't had a problem with them. To me, they are light, durable, cheap, sensitive, and aesthetically pleasing. All the qualities I want and more.

From: Kyle: NY 12/20/14

Comments: I bought this rod 1 year ago and it still is holding very well.I got the 7ft medium heavy. Definitely will purchase another in the near future I just ordered my 7ft medium veritas 2.0 cant wait for it to come in! definitely buy this rod out does any other rods in my eyes!

From: Cody: Ocala, FL 12/4/14

Comments: Picked up this rod a few weeks ago because it was on sale for 60$ at a local sporting goods store and all I have to say is that is it way better than what I paid for. I will be getting a Lew's Speed Spool to put on it and it should be a fantastic combo.

From: Austin: Wilson, NC 11/23/14

Comments: i got this rod a year and a half ago it works great ive put it through a beating. I've hit this rod to trees sings other rods scratched it on the ground and it still works great.if you are thinking about buying it BUY IT

From: Nino: Painesville, OH 7/15/14

Comments: I have the 7' 3" and the 7' 6" medium heavy and I love them, I use the 7' 6" for flipping and it has plenty of power to pull big bass out of heavy cover also I really like the 7' 3" for swim jigs chatterbaits and spinnerbaits, the 7' 3" is a very versital rod and you can use it for just about anything but I like it the most for those three baits

From: Kyle: WI 4/6/14

Comments: I used this rod for about 15 minutes then I had to return it.  The reel kept moving around on the reel seat.  I tried a second reel and got the same result.  It's difficult to tighten a reel to the reel seat on this rod.  Before you buy this rod, I suggest that you put a reel on it and try to wiggle the reel to make sure it's secure.

From: Earl: Pittsburgh, PA 3/28/14

Comments: These rods are awesome. I have the 6'9" MH, 7' M, and the 7'3" MH. I have been using them for a few years and they have held up really well. Good sensitivity and good back bone too. 7'3" is a little tip heavy but still works well for me.

From: Michael: GA 3/13/14

Comments: This is an amazing rod. I have a 7' MH rod paired with a Quantum Smoke reel and I am very impressed. Great sensitivity and very lightweight. I use it for shallow and deep cranking and my arm doesn't get tired after a long day on the water.

From: Luke: Minnesota 2/27/14

Comments: These rods are a good buy for the money. The actions are heavier than other brands im used to.

From: Lee: White House,TN ,US

Comments: I have seven of these rods and i have to say i love them all. they are sensitive and light and the best rods for the price. My favorite is probably the 7'3"MH cause it is very versatile.

From: Cody: Kingston, TN

Comments: For the money you just cant beat the Veritas. I got the 7' MH and I love it for jigs and t rigs. I put a blackmax reel on it and it is not  a bad reel. But if you have the extra money, But a revo. They are way better

From: Devon: Cincinatti, OH

Comments: I personal have 3 of these rods two of which are winch cranking rods in 7' and 7-1/2' and finally a 7-1/2' med hvy I use for flipping or heavier baits. I have had no issues with any of these rods. I have caught everything from 10lb stripers, 4lb smallies, to snagging 30" gar with no issues. They are great rods in my eyes. I just believe with any mass produced product there are going to be some that aren't to par. Same as with cars sometimes you get lemons. I also do thoroughly inspect and somewhat test the rods before I purchase them.

From: Doug: Shorewood, il

Comments: I have the 7' 3" in med hev and the 7' 6" winch in med hev.  I have started using the winch for flipping and I love it.  The rod loads up nicely on the fish and slingshots the poor guy out of cover like a rocket.  This rod can hold its own durability has not been an issue to me.  I have had the top eye insert fall out of the 7' 3" but that was my fault because I am always stabbing my rod tip into cover to get my lure loose.  the replacement was like 2.00 so no biggie.

From: waderade812: evansville IN

Comments: the veritas rods are outstanding rod for the price. I recently bought the 7' winch cranking rod and paired it with the gen3 revo stx, it super light and balaces well. I mainly throw square bills and medium diving cranks on this. If your lookin for a great cranking rod or rod in general, the veritas is the rod to go with. I'll definetly be replacing all my other rods with these

From: Jeff: charleston, wv

Comments: Have had 5 for about a year now. As of right now 2 have completely broken on me and the other 3 have 1 or more eyes broken off. The rods were great at first, but I see you get what you pay for

From: Cody: WI

Comments: I own two of these in Medium/Hvy, great rods, very sensitive, good backbone, very light weight. Have been fishing them for a year and a half, my only complaint is the guides, the insets fall out, they bend extremely easy and one has completely broke off! As a tournament fisherman your gear gets a lot of use and I take very good care of my stuff. They need to improve on the guide durability before I buy any more.

From: Mike: DE, USA

Comments: The overall rod is good I've whipped many fish in the boat with mine but i will say the eyes suck

From: johnreese: MT.vernon ky

Comments: Veritas Winch rods are really good. Perfect action for deep cranking and light in the hands. Was also surprised with the sensitivity of the rod. Will be purchasing at least two more.

From: Joe: Crestview, FL

Comments: I'm a fan of all of these rods but the 7'3" MH is one sick rod, and the 7'6" MH Winch Series cranking stick is an awesome deep crank rod!

From: Daniel: Phoenix, AZ

Comments: All i can say is it is a great rod at a great price only had it for about a month now and it has performed to my standards pair it up with a lews speed spool and your golden! I have the 7'0 mh and it is a great all around rod i can flip and frog on this if i really wanted to. It is so light so sensitive and loaded with backbone! Hopefully it doesn't break!

From: Bailey: CT

Comments: I have got the 6'9 medium heavy for worms and jigs but it really isn't a extra fast more like a moderate fast. The guides are not durable at ALL, the inserts fell out of two guides of mine after normal use and they bend easily. Decent sensitivity but if I was buying another rod at this price point it would not be this one.

From: Sam: USA

Comments: I own the 7' rod in this serious and I fell in love using it I won the rod in a tournament and almost sold it the day I got it but decided not to If I currently had the money I change all my rods to these the sensitivity was great as an avid tournament fisher my rods and tackle go through a beating and these have with held the test!

From: TN

Comments: I have the 7 foot medium heavy, regular guide model rod. This rod has a very stiff backbone witch, i really wasn't looking for out of this rod. I matched it up with a quantum smoke which is a pretty light reel and it is very tip heavy. The balance point is almost in the middle of the rod witch really makes the rod off balance. Overall i wouldn't suggest buying it.

From: VA

Comments: these rods have definitely been battle tested. mine has electrical tape around the handle because the dogs chewed on it. it is a great rod. I have the 7'6" med heavy. it is a little tip heavy with my lews speed spool but the light weight and sensitivity makes up for it. the power of it is amazing. pulled a 3 pound bass covered in about 5 pounds of vegetation right out from a tree and the rod didn't even scream from the graphite splintering.

From: Reid: NC

Comments: I have 5 of these rods in different sizes. They are going on their 4rth season of heavy fishing and I have had no issues with any of them. Like any factory production rod, it is best to check, test and inspect any rod you plan to purchase right there in the store or, when it arrives to your door prior to fishing it.

From: Johnny: TX

Comments: Have had a few veritas casting rods since they first came out. Really liked it at first. These rods are light and very sensitive. Although I wouldn't recomend buying them unless they are on sale. The guides are always breaking or popping out and I have had them snap while swinging fish. I would recommend paying more for a villian.

From: NC

Comments: I got the 7ft medium one 2 months ago and I loved it then my dad got mad because it took up too much room and he threw it in his truck it didn't completely break when he threw it. I think when he threw it it just started to crack and I went to cast it and it just completely snapped. very good rod I'm getting a new one but it will be 7ft medium heavy with micro guides because I do a lot of jiging and top water. it's probobly the best rod for the money I just think its the best overall.

From: Jayson: NH

Comments: it is a good rod, very sensitive, not to heavy, and balenced I have cought tons of bass on it. This would be the perfect rod, except other guides are very weak and so is the tip. I had to pay $20 to fix the guides and tip. I do not like to pay $120 for a $100 rod. Other than that awesome rod. But wouldn't buy again because of the guides.

Comments: I have a 7' MH casting rod and a 7' M spinning rod. I really think these rods perform well and are comfortable to fish with. They are light, sensitive, and fit most reels very well. Despite this, they seem to have some durability issues. I had a 7' 3" MH for about one season, but it broke after catching a 6 lb bass (I landed the bass, so it was bitter sweet). I fish some college level tournaments and it makes me worry a little.

From: Daniel: Hoffman Estates, IL

Comments: I must say I love this ROD!  I have even traded in more expensive Daiwa rods for the Veritas.  For the money you cant beat them.  I have two more on the way right now, that I just ordered.  All these guys can say they snap, but I have read tons of comments on all the rods on this site with the same thing being said.  Its usually the person using the rod, that causes the high level of stress.  I hope this helped.  I pair mine up with Lews Tournament speed spools, for light weight and low stress; for a great all day fishing combo! Also I let my tournament partner use mine in Guntersville AL, for a FLW tournament we fished. And he now is replacing all of his Falcons and Daiwa's for this rod as well. Good luck and tight lines.

From: Kyle: NC

Comments:  I Bought a veritas rod last year, it was a decent pole besides being to heavy until it snapped in half while reeling in a 12inch bass. I wish I would have read more reviews on this rod before buying it there are countless issues with these rods breaking. THEY ARE CRAP DON'T BUY THEM!

From: Shawn: IA

Comments: I have the 7'3 MH and am quickly finding myself reaching for it more and more. I was a bit skeptical when I first got it but have no more doubts. Pair it with a STX and it balances out awesome. Most likely will get another.

From: David: Raymore, MO

Comments: I'm not trying to scare anyone off from these rods. They are incredible rods for the money. Very lightweight and comfortable to fish with all day. However I have purchased 8 of these rods in the last year and have snapped 2 of them in multiple pieces. Just something to think about. They come with a year warranty and swapping them out was very easy. Hope this helps you all.

From: Jacob: Houma, LA

Comments: I just got this rod in 7'6" mh for flipping/pitching and frogging and all I gotta say is go get this rod, especially if you're a little tight on money and you don't wanna pay to much money for a rod. It's very light, sensitive and it has plenty of back bone. Just last night I horsed a 29 inch pike in heavy weeds with no problem at all. Also don't listen to the guys that say this rod has all kinds of durability issues because any rod will break if it isn't treated well. Even if you're a little rough on your gear, like myself, the rod will hold up. So once again it's a great rod and for $100 it's an absolute steal!

From: Chandler: Ogdensburg, NY

Comments: I'm very happy with my Veritas. You just cant find a better all around rod at any price. As far as durability goes, any rod will break when heavy things are dropped on them and as long as you don't set the hook on stumps or rocks this rod won't snap.

From: Johnny: Adams, WI

Comments: I own this rod in 7' MH and am not too impressed with it.  The rod does not seem as though it is balanced very well, and seems a bit tip heavy.  Sensitivity is decent and the rod has a good backbone for hooksets, but the weight issue alone only allows me to use this rod for short periods of time.

From: Matt: Florence, KY

Comments: I own the 6'6 M-F, 7' M-MF, 7' M-M, 7'H-XF, 7'6 MH-F and a 6'9 MH-F Micro.  I only use these rods and for the money on the market, Ive used almost everything out there, from Skeet Reese to Dobyns Chamipion Extreme and for the money, these are the best. Will they break? OF course, but not easily. The guides aren't the best in the world but if you treat the rod right and don't throw it around when you get mad like IKE and don't step on it like an idiot. Treat these rods right and you will catch more fish. Pair with a REVO and you have a combo for life!

From: Samuel: Valdosta, GA

Comments: guides on these are pretty crappy. Two of the rings inside the guides fell out and the one on the tip which freys my line. Another guide broke off.

From: Justin: Meridian, MS

Comments: I have own 2 of the Veritas rodas and both have snapped while setting the hook on a bass.My bait caster rod lasted alittle over 2 years and my spinning rod i bought the first of feburary lasted alittle over 2 months.I have a $40 quantum thats way more durable than these things...

From: Michael: Jonesborough, TN

Comments: Excellent rod! had mine for two days and i've caught around 20 2-3lb bass on it. no problems, VERY sensitive. i purchased the 7' med/hvy. No problems with durability yet. I usually baby my equipment so durability shouldnt be a huge problem

From: Brian: CA

Comments: I bought this rod and used it two times. I had it laying in the back of my SUV and a air tank pushed against it and broke off the top 10 inches. I own a lot of rods but I have never had one break so easy. I don't get it. It shouldn't have.

From: Larry: St. Louis, MO

Comments: I am a St Croix Rods guy. Never even looked at any other brand. I have always used Abu reels on my St Croix rods. In the market for a Pitching rod. Compared the 7 11'' Mojo Bass to the Veritas. The Veritas was alot lighter. Bought it but was scared of the durability. After alot of trips on the water, I have no complaints. Very happy with the purchase. Don't really see me switching to the Veritas series but really happy to have the one in my arsonal.

From: Josh: Northern KY

Comments: in respnose to reel seat scratches. I work with these rods everyday and to be honest its gonna happen to ur revos. Only solution is try as smaller real seat reel or rub a little grease on the foot of the reel. Other than that its gonna happen.

From: Stephen: AL

Comments: I left my 7' medium stranding straight up in a rod holder and went under a bridge. The rod hit off of four I beams and did'nt even have a scratch on it! i coulndt be happier with the veritas series.

From: Matt: Raleigh: NC

Comments: I bought this rod maybe a couple of months ago in a 7' med-hvy i have it paired with a shimano citica and it works great! pulling in 4 lb fish with ease. This rod is great! Taking it out to see if it will be able to handle the monster bass in lake Okeechobee. Great rod, strongly recommend you buy one, you wont be disappointed.

From: Junior

Comments: I had this rod for close to two years and it was all good until today.  I have a 7' medium and was throwing a KVD 1.5.  Casted towards a point and a gust of wind took the lure and it got caught on a little tree branch.  I give my rod a light jerk to get the bait free and the rod snaps at the third guide down.  Really disappointed to say the least.  It WAS a nice rod until it broke for no reason.  I took care of it and yet still here I am with a broken rod. I would reccomend getting Wright and McGill Honeycomb Skeet Reese series rods.  They are where it is at for this price range.

From: Mike: Columbus, KS

Comments: I am a huge fan of these rods! I now own 19 of them and will be placing an order for 2 of the new 7'6 crankbait rods. The new 7'0 cranking rod ish use bought is insanely light!! The parabolic bend is perfect! If you want a great rod, give this series a shot! I was a huge Team Daiwa-S fan (green series) for many years and these are even nicer! Great rods for an awesome price! TWH 4 LIFE!

From: Justin: Glastonbury, CT

Comments: I have the 7'6" Veritas Winch.  The rod could be a little more sensitive to me.  Ive got it matched with an E5 and have tried mono and fluoro.  Neither really increased sensitivity.  Overall though its a good rod and very strong.  Its light and I can throw DD22's with it all day.  I actually landed a 19 blue cat on this rod and while it was tough the rod did very well and I wasnt scared of breaking the rod at all.  Just bought a 7" heavy veritas for jigs today and look forward to using it.

From: Marcus: Austin, TX 

Comments: These Abu Garcia rods are one great buy for being only 100 dollars.  I own mostly carrot stix which are more expensive and have almost switched over to these great rods.  They can handle anything you throw at them.  I have 5 now plan on getting the winch series or micro guides and about the only thing I can see that is a little bad is the guides could be better but for a 100 dollars i can buy two of these for one G Loomis and yes I am Dissing Loomis.  These rods have it all, power, sensitivity,there  lightweight, the price is great and they look sweet.  You wont be disappointed so pick one up.

From: Chase: Shipshewana, IN

Comments:  I own the 6'6" M-F, 6'9" MH-F Micro, 7' M-MF, 7' M-M, 7' H, and 7'6" MH-F. These are the only rods I use, the guides could be better but over-all I definitely recommend!!

Comments: love these rods have five on them only broke on and that was because i slammed it on the boat will buy more

From: Gareth: Greenwood, SC

Comments: I bought this rod at the beggining of this year to fish toads on, caught 5 bass over 9 lbs this summer on it, no problem at all. Bunch of guys stepping on their rods on the boat deck and blaming it on Abu. Buy one, they are great.

From: Jake: Topsfield, MA

Comments: Worst rod broke on me twice and once on a 2lb fish

From: Jon: USA

Comments: I love my veritas, it's super sensitive.

Comments: Purchased the 7'MH for my TD Advantage. Very satisfied with it. Great looks, great price, freat feel and a LOT of strength. Stands up with pike or muskie that want a bass snack.

From: Andrew: Algonac, MI

Comments: the guides blow they break so dam easy waste of money

From: Kyle: Itasca

Comments: I cant stand this rod.  It was the best rod I thought ever had for the first month or so and now I hate it!  I have a vendetta and it is much more comfortable to use and has better guides.  The 3rd guide on my veritas broke off and the epoxy underneath the others seem very weak and look like they are going to snap off any second from now.  I have the 7'3 MH and it is not good for anything, not very sensitive and too uncomfortable for me to even use.  GET A CARBONLITE!!! It is a much better rod and this rod is junk, i hope it snaps.

From: Bill

Comments: like them at first they were really nice but the guides are strong at all ill say right now i will not be purchasing another im gona stay will st.croix and dobyns and carrot stix from now on!!

From: Kyle: USA

Comments: Bad Review!! I have this rod, in the 7' 3" MH, it is way too bulky.  not really practical for jigging or anything really for that matter. The tip has no feeling, its like a saltwater setup. the vendetta is cheaper and lighter, go for that one. FISH ON!

From: Justin: North Jersey

Comments: I was pretty happy with my Veritas rods and ended up with 8 of them.  I did end up with one cracked insert and hated the reel seat nut but otherwise the sensitivity and weight was excellent for a $100 rod.  I've replaced mine with Powell Max rods and although they're a bit heavier the workmanship is way better than the Veritas.  Definitely one of the better $100 rods I've seen.

From: Mike: Jackson, MO

Comments: I own 3 of these rods, 6'6 M-F, 7' M-MF, and a 7' H-XF. They are amazing rods for the price, my friend is a denali fan an my Veritas's blow his rods out of the water in almost every aspect. I wish Abu would not make these rods so stiff an come out with more "Pro-based" models.... 8/10

From: Sam: Valdosta, GA

Comments: I love these rods to death. Makes my carpal tunnel alot easier to manage because it feels like a feather in hand. But after going through 4 rods in one season.... they seem to want to break about 8-10inches from the tip. Not very happy. Seems like the Vendetta Rods are built tough.

From: Cvang: MPLS, MN

Comments: All I have to say is, if they're good enough for Mike Iaconelli, they're good enough for me. You guys that say they're breaking must not know how to use a fishing rod. Ike is rough with his equipment and his rod locker is stuffed with them. You'd think if they broke he'd resort to another Abu Garcia rod. My point is, they're not a ceiling poker or a ceiling fan stopper, treat them right and they won't break on you. I have 8 of them. I use them all for every application, and I've used every model. Awesome products. I highly recommend you give em' a shot.

From: Alan: TN

Comments: I own 11 of these rods from the mediums the the medium hvys.have only broke one of them.otherwise ive sold all my st. roix rods to buy these.Will always love croix but for the price of one of my legend extremes i can almost buy 4 Veritas rods.excelent rod for the money,just check the guides and reel seat before purchase if possible.i buy all these rods from cabelas so i can pick out the good ones:)

From: Brandon: IL

Comments: I got the 7'6" for a pitching stick. Absolutely love the rod! Alot of back bone and a nice tip. only problem is the foam handle is chip and is tearing off after only having it for about a month.

From: Albany, AL

Comments: before you buy this cool looking, light rod,...be sure to set a reel in the reel seat and see if the front of the reel mount sits properly where the screw down hood attaches.  I've seen MORE THAN ONE where the screw down section is glued too far up the rod and the reel does not sit properly, which could definately cause problems.  Nice try Abu....Inconsistent China made BULK....if you ask me.  I would recommend a St. Croix Rage or the shimano crucial.  Spend a few more bucks!!

From: John: St. Louis, MO

Comments: Dont know why theres so many comments for rods breaking, mine is great, strong and quality. If ur rod is breaking ur doing something wrong cause i have set the hook hard on plenty of fish and it does it great. Great rod for price and every person who says this rod sucks is dum as a rock.

From: Garrett: VA

Comments: Amazing rod, really sensitive for the price, extremely light and built with some great actions. If you're wondering weather you shall buy it or not, buy it, I'm telling you it's really worth it, I already have 3 of those and man... for a rod under 100$ it's simply amazing

From: Alexis: Laval, Canada

Comments: I got a 7' Medium and a 7'3 MH.  The medium broke about 8 inches from the tip which was really strange because the 7'3 has so much backbone!!!  I cannot break the MH,  It must be something with the medium power but the MH rocks!!!!

From: Trevor

Comments: I bot the 7.3ft Med/Hvy 1pc i love the rod but its alittle on the soft side

From: Sonny: East Wareham, MA

Comments: love this rod. broke one in 7 mh banged it off stering wheel on boat. started with shimano 200e7 then hung revo winch on it perfect match caught several 4-5 pounders on frog in some thick stuff to  love it

From: Robert: Oak Grove, LA

Comments: I LOVE the rod, I have a 6'6" MH paired up with the Lew's speed spool caster. So far it is awesome, haven't been fishing with it yet been too busy to fish with it but just by tying a swivel to the line i can feel the small weight of the small swivel hitting the end of the line.

From: Josh: WI

Comments: i like the rod for $100 and have 2 of them but would much rather prefer the falcon bucoo at the same price or $30 more for the falcon bucoo micro guide rod.

From: James: Ft. Polk, LA

Comments: AWESOME rods!  Really light and sensative.  I got the 7'3" MH and 7' MH and plan to order more.  I'm a St.Croix kinda guy but these Veritas are just as good if not better!  Only problem I have with the rod is the hook keeper is in the wrong spot. Mojo's got it on the best spot but occasionally the line catches the keeper on the Veritas.  Otherwise 9/10 !!

From: David: Sauk Centre, MN

Comments: This is an awsome rod for $100! Very lightweight and sensitive but the only problem is that they will break, i've broken 2 7' flipping sticks but still for the money they can't be beat

From: Dustin

Comments: Scott from japan has no idea. these rods are amazing. scott must have no idea how to fish if he breaks one of these things and no it isnt a 40.00 dollar rod selling for 100.00 dollars. it is an awesome rod.

From: Matt: Corcoran, MN

Comments: Have had my rod for a month or so.. I has landing over 100 Bass with NO problems.. I have used it from crankbaits, to throwing shakey head with it.. It is Very sensitive, VERY balanced, and has a great spine to set the hook... Had NO problems with it and have caught some SOLID 5+ pound Bass on it so far... I will be get a few more.

From: Derek: Live Oak, FL

Comments: Love the rod, but I had the rod tip lost its insert on the fourth outing, it will be replaced with a fuji guide seeing as the guides on this rod are a little iffy. Have a vendetta and have no issues with it, but this is not right

From: Mike: Waukesha, WI

Comments: Great rod sensitive and well made and white is a good color the reel seat holds well just don't care for it being metal during to the threads can be sharp depending on how much it was used in the store and wish the butt was all cork without the insert

From: Nathan: MS

Comments: I bought the 7'6" for cranking about 5 months ago....best rod i hae ever purchased, it has great feel and its superlight.  You can throw a crankbait a mile with this rod....definatley worth its price, i would encourage you to buy this rod you wont regret it!!!

From: Grant: Dillsburg, PA

Comments: I don't see what all the buzz is about. The butt of these rods is like a tree trunk, the reel seat hood is bulky and stiff, and the tip actions are stiffer than stiff. Pure Fishing is a bunch of hype including Abu Garcia. Much rather put my hard earned money into a Powell rod that only costs 40 bucks more.

From: Mark: Spokane, WA

Comments: Great rod, is very sensitive, and feels great.. Got the 7' med action..
