Comments: I purchased the 7'2" M I have used it for drop shotting and dragging tubes on Lake Erie for smallies and this rod works just great for both applications. For the price the rod is really sensitive. The one negative is rod is a little tip hvy.

From: Dale: Erie, PA

Comments: these rods are a step down from their previous models. The eyes are a bit large, which give the look and feel of a cheaper rod. They feel heavier than the old models aswell. I was excited about shimano redoing the clarus because I have loved the previous models but was pretty disappointed when I finally bought the rod.
