Customer Reviews

Comments: I bought this rod and sent it back the next day. It is more stiff than I expected but I could deal with that. What I couldn't deal with is the weight of this rod. This is rod is insanely heavy. Would be very awkward on the water. Returned it and bought a Cabelas Tournament ZX rod.

From: Kellen: Kearney, NE 2/11/16

Comments: Tip snapped on my third largemouth (2lbs). I bought the 7'6" MH and wanted this to be a great rod, and everything about was great when I got it; the reel seat and full blank grip are amazing and I could cast into next year. I hope the replacement Functions like it should because it is a nice rod for the price.

From: TK: Stevensville, MD 10/5/14

Comments: The tip is supposed to be soft for topwaters. The reason being that it compensates for quick reactions to strikes, setting the hook a split second later. These rods are amazing. I use a 7' 5" MH for my frogs. I throw the Live Target 65's on it just fine, casting it a mile and getting great hooksets at any distance. My hookup ratio on the frog is around 95% with this rod. Shimano cannot be beat.

Comments:  Bought the 6'8 MH Topwater rod and I feel the tip is faaaar too soft for topwaters.  The rods rated up to 1oz, but with a 5/8 oz lure tied on the tip was sagging.  I prefer to use big walkers like Spooks and the such and the rod is just too soft to walk the dog with a heavier lure.  After about 8 casts with the rod I'm trying to sell it.
