Comments: I bought this rod because it was light and looked great. I have owned many rods from the cheapest to extremely expensive such as the Diawa steez. I recently had broken two rods so I needed a new one I got the 7,0' med and for the first couple months it was great but unfortunately as I used it more and cout more fish a couple problems emerged. Since I was cranking I was using a florocarbon. Let me tell you the line guide at the end of the rod was cut down and basically sharpened by the line rubing it. Every time I threw a big high resistance crainkbait it would fray the line and when I set the hook it would cut and break the line until the insert popped out and I had to replace the guide. Once I did the rod worked great. Other than the quality of the guides I would say in the price range nothing can compare other than maybe the Powell diesel. All in all I do recomend the rod but look into a better guide for the tip.

Comments: I have to say, when I initially bought this rod I was skeptical considering it was in the $50 price range. All I can say is WOW! This rod performs exceptionally well. It is sensitive, strong, and light. There are obviously rods which are way better than this, but for $50-$60 the Shimano Sellus is a great choice. Highly recommended!!

Comments: I just got this rod in the mail today, and I have to say that it's pretty nice. You'd really expect it to cost more than it does with the quality you get. The blank is a kind of strange pearly kind of white, but I'm not complaining about it or anything. My one concern is that one of the guides makes a weird clicking sound whenever the rod flexes. I'm really hoping it doesn't snap near that guide like the Vendetta did. The rod has a very nice parabolic action, as is expected from a crankbait rod. It's very light, comfortable, and has fairly good balance. Overall a great rod, can't wait to take it out for a spin.

Comments: When i first unboxed this rod i was very surprised to see how light and thin it was. It has a very strong backbone and feels like a higher end rod. If you are looking for a good rod and are on a budget, don't let the price fool you.

From: Tyler: Cincy

Comments: Awesome rod, and the price is right. Tackled some nice winter bass with some jerkbaits this season. Looking forward to getting the flipping stick!

From: Christian: CA

Comments:  I just bought one of these in MH 7'0.  I like the action on it because its a little more stiff than a lot of the crank bait rods out there which I feel are too wobbly.  Its nice and light but it could be balanced a little better.  I have a Chronarch E on it and the colors are an exact match but it doesnt balance out as well as it probably should.  A slightly longer handle or a heavier reel would probably take care of it but its really not that much of an issue.  I've heard some people comparing these to the Abu Garcia Veritas rods.  I have one of those too and there is no comparison.  The Veritas is much better.  The sellus crankbait rod is a solid buy for the price
