"Don't think for a moment this rod isn't great because of the price. Because if it wasn't, I wouldn't jeopardize my career by using them. So I'm telling you, if they work great for me, they will work awesome for you. I hope they help you catch more fish than ever before." - Skeet Reese, BASS Elite Tour Pro.

Designed closely with 2009 Bassmaster Classic Champion Skeet Reese, the Wright & McGill Skeet S-Curve Casting Rods feature a unique build process designed to create thinner blanks with increased durability and performance. The exclusive construction process combines T-Glass with high density graphite to form the core of the blank. Carbon yarn, PBO fiber and glass fiber are then woven into a combination of T-Glass and high density graphite to produce a rod that is extremely strong and has increased compression resistance. The blank is then wrapped with carbon tape and high density graphite to eliminate cracking and increase breaking strength. The end result is a rod series that is ultra-sensitive, extremely lightweight and designed to be stronger than traditional graphite rods.

In addition to featuring Skeet Reese's signature black and yellow coloring, the S-Curve Casting Rods also feature premium components, including zirconium oxide guides which help reduce the rod's weight and improve casting distance. The split-grip handle design also assists with weight reduction and combined with the large fighting butt delivers excellent balance and leverage. Furthermore, revolutionary molded rubber handles furnish anglers with incredible feel and a comfortable grip for long days on the water. Endorsed by one of the most successful bass anglers on tour and featuring an aggressive price tag, the Wright & McGill Skeet Reese S-Curve Casting rods provide the lightweight performance, durability and strength Skeet Reese demands from his go-to casting rods.

Comments: The 8ft Flippin/Pitchin rod and the 8ft magnum swimbait rod. The Flippin/Pitchin rod is heavy in my opinion. Not something you'd want to pitch with all day long. It does however have a solid backbone, easy to get fish out of gnarly cover. I throw lighter swimbaits like 6" hudds and lucky craft real bluegill on the 8ft Mag. Swimbait rod. It handles it fairly well. For someone on a budget they aren't a bad rod.

From: Chad: USA 3/1/16

Comments: I purchased the 7'6 Carolina/swimbait model in 2011 & i have not fished any rod a light and manageable as this one. It can cast a mile with light baits, the hookup ratio is amazing & the rod itself is great. I am in the market for a jerkbait/topwater rod & definitely considering the s-curve for my next one. The price range is great. The only downside I have with this rod is that it gets scuffed up easily. i must have somewhere in the 5-6 years of owning it dinged up the rod in a few places but other than that a solid rod. i have caught most of the fish on this rod i never broke anything on the rod. i would suggest this to others it's just so good.

From: Sean: San Antonio, TX 1/21/16

Comments: i have 3 of the rods and i love mine never had a problem with any of mine. i have even caught bull red redfish with mine. i love them

From: Kade: LA 8/27/15

Comments: Purchased one of these rods to replace old spinning rod, store had a good sale on them. The first worm rod shattered setting the hook on a bass with a senko, luckily I got the fish in with half a rod, solid 6Lbr. Took rod back to the store and got it replaced no problem. Second rod same thing, small fish no issues, set the hook on a nice spot and pow, shattered right in the middle again. Not sure why, I fish every day and fish Duckett Ghost and a few of the original All Star rods and never had one break.

From: Chip: USA 5/25/15

Comments: I was given the cranking rod by a friend who Also thinks these are total crap. I own 4+ Loomis rods and in no way, shape or form are these yellow cheesy crap-sabers even close. Look WAY down in the reviews. someone said they beat Loomis. I can not stop laughing. Drugs melt brain cells.

From: Jay6: USA 11/27/14

Comments: I fish everyday and these are the best rods I've ever used. Ive been through 3 but it was my fault they broke just because putting them in and out of my truck. Mistakes are made. I'm going to pick up 2 of the spinning versions Friday. Tight lines! !!

From: Hunter: St. Pauls, NC 6/17/14

Comments: I have used this rod for over a year now and like it better all the time. I often fish for largemouth bass with Senkos and have never had a rod action is perfect for working these lures from the cast and hook set to getting the fish into the boat. It may not be as light weight as some other casting rods, but I don't worry about the rod failing when working a big bass out from heavy weeds. Lately, I paired it with the Daiwa Tatula Type R in 8 to 1 speed and for ripping Strike King Rage Tail Shad over the surface of shad boils, and the rod performs well there, too.

From: Vince: Tucson, AZ 5/31/14

Comments: I found some of these rods at a discount store in Somerset, KY, a few years ago.  I had never fished any Wright-McGill rods before, but the fishing supply store had these rods priced so low I couldn't pass up the chance.  I purchased the "Tessera A"/Jerk Bait/Topwater model.  This is a very versatile rod that can be used for small to medium crankbaits also.  I saw the same rods in WalMart priced nearly $30 higher.  I've had the rod for three years, and I have never experienced any durability or quality issues.  I mounted a Shimano Curado cranking reel on this rod, and the balance is incredible!!!  Great product and an unbeatable value!!! 

From: John: Knoxville, TN 5/20/14

Comments: I swear by these rods. I own 3 of them. I have 2 of the 8' flipping rods and a 7'2" jig/worm rod. I love them. The big 8 footers are great rods to flip with. They have a lot of backbone and a very soft tip. Then the rod goes straight to backbone. The 8' is also great for throwing my hudds and my spro bbz-1 6" swimbaits. The jig/worm rod is a great all-around rod. You can throw anything in it. I use a lot of jigs, crankbaits and I texas rig a lot of baits on it. If you are looking at a new rod, buy one if these. You will never go back. I know that I will never own a different kind if rod ever again. If Wright and McGill goes out of business, I will stick up and buy 30 of them!

From: Zach: MI 5/13/14

Comments: I have the spinner bait/worm rod and it is amazing it is really light sensitive and all around a great rod

From: Josh: IL 3/23/14

Comments: Just WOW...I have had this rod for a while and it has not had any problems... It is EXTREMELY light-weight and literally casts baits a mile. Also, the price is AMAZING for the quality of the rod... Best rod i have ever owned. Overall Rating: 10/10

From: Riley: USA 3/11/14

Comments: 7'6" pitchin stick is really a all around flipping rod. It has a lot of power! If your look for a flipping rod to cover every aspect of hvy to light cover flipping and even punching this rod will do it. I'll be honest its not super light but its well balance. For the price I guaranty you be happy. 

From: Javi: CA, Delta

Comments: I have three of these rods and planing on buying more. They are lightweight and very durable. I have only had one break on me when I tried to bring in a 15+ lb snakehead. My favorite rod is the 7' crankin stick. Its sensitive to feel every rock, stump, and stick and still have the power to pull in some huge bass, snakeheads and catfish that call the Potomac river home.

From: Bobby: Woodbridge, VA

Comments: I've owned the 7'0" s glass for 3 years and have caught some monsters on lake falcon , fork and Sam Rayburn throwing 6 XD cranks. The rod has held up great other than fading from being in the sun . I do believe that putting a rod sock on your rods and taking care of them helps a ton.

From: Jake: flint,tx

Comments: Bought the spinnerbait/worm model to use as a backup and for the old lady to use.  Broke my avid when the ratchet strap came loose in the back of the truck and the trolling motor battery fell on it.  Sent the avid back, I am using the skeet reese rod and the old lady is using the avid.

From: Frank: PA

Comments:  I own 2 of these rods, the 7' 2 jig/worm and the 7''6 swim bait/Carolina rod. Both are great rods. I went with  these rods after breaking two Abu Garcias and haven't looked back. The jig rod is sensitive and long enough to make a good cast and the swim bait rod, in my opinion, is better suited for deep diving cranking. I love launching 6xds, DD22s, and 10xds on this guy. Only problem with these rods is that the color will fade after a while if you fish like I do. But honestly, I'm grateful for that. Wish they came in all black.

From: Andrew: Murray, KY

Comments: Best rod i have ever purchased for $49.99 on sale. Spinner bait/ worm rod is better suited for cranking, which is what i use it for and believe me its nice. Wish they made the same rod in a 7' 5"

From: Mike: Canada

Comments: I bought the flippin/pitch rod, straight out of the box I was very pleased. Took it to the lake, and loved it. I took it to a lake with alot of perminant docks, and I could flip that jig wherever i wanted to with ease. The rod being so much longer, it let me be able to flip up to 4 and 5 feet farther than my partner. Very pleased with this rod.

From: Brody: Pendleton, SC

Comments: I own the 7ft 2in jig and worm rod and i could not be more happy with it. I use this rod for carolina rigs, and fishing finesse jigs as well as weightless jerk baits and other misc baits. it is my all around rods for practically all plastics or jigs. a must have for the serious angler.Also i am planning on getting the 7ft 6in pitching rod for heavier jigs and punching/ flipping. Can't wait!

From: Tyler: Cincinnati, OH

Comments: I have the Spinnerbait/worm rod.  Rod has the perfect action for spinnerbaits and cast them a mile with the soft tip it has. But I wouldn't recommend it for a worm rod. I like a stiffer rod with a faster action tip for worming. But thats just my preference. 

From: Doug: SC

Comments: own 11 of these rods,all different technic's,if you use them what their designed for they work quite well,these rods load perfectly,i have not lost a fish since i purchased my first one,only had a issue with i rod over the 5-6 years,reel seat came loose on crankin rod,w&m replaced it for free,i since have purchased 2 ofthe rick clunn

From: hd: Lomira, WI

Comments: love this rod but its heavy and i get tired easy when using it i have the 7 foot 2 jig/worm rod and everything is good on it but its heavy and i have the skeet reese reel on it and i dont like the reel it maks noise and backlashes

From: Hunter: St. Pauls, NC

Comments: Great rod and does not cost too much. I really like the back bone and how it feels with my ardent F-700 and 20 lbs. fluorocarbon. I flip in logs and all kinds of stuff in ponds and lakes and don't have any problems. I have even used it for catfish and it seems like i was cheating. I have two Skeet Rods and will be getting the alabama rig one soon

From: Grant: Auburn, AL

Comments: i broke the 7'6" swimbait/C-Rig in half rite above the first guide ripping a swimbait out of grass.

From: Josh: Meifee, CA

Comments: Sure it's a cheaper rod and looks cool... Mine snapped on about the sixth cast as so many other of these have done.

From: Nick: LaGrange, GA

Comments: Not happy.. thought it was a great rod, I fish with it all the time and loved it but it popped today pulling a 1 1/2 lb bass in on a 1.5 crankbait...  I'd rather buy something that would last than have to buy over and over.  Had All Stars for years and they never broke on me.   Very disappointed.  Looks like I'll have to get a Duckett.

From: Jennifer: Converse, LA

Comments: Overall a pretty good rod. I own 2, the mag crankbait and the heavy cover honeycomb. The cranking rod is pretty heavy and will wear on your wrists if your throwing them all day but you can chunk a mile with them and the guides on the honeycomb one are pretty crappy they bend really easy and one broke close to the tip. But pretty good rods for the money.

From: Justin: Meridian, MS

Comments:  Bought the frog rod and action was great until first fish about 5lb and the reel seat broke loose.  Build quality is poor
and will not buy any more.

From: Lynn: Yuma, AZ

Comments: this is not a good worm rod personally i like a stiff rod for worms and texas rigs.. Not a good rod for that at all. Awesome carolina rig rod, lipless crank, squarebill, walk the dog, and especially spinnerbaits and you can feel wvery movement it has when u throw a chatterbait on it! All in all its a great rod.. I have this one and my friend has the jig/worm rod it is an awesome texas rig rod, just a little heavy

From: Jacob

Comments: Have the 7' S Glass crankin rod and it is a great rod. I prefer the feel of glass when cranking so i decided to try one of these out. Extremely impressed with the action and taper of the rod. For the money, i would recommend these rods to anyone.

From: Cole: Ontario, Canada

Comments: I bought the spinnerbait/worm model.  I use it for spinnerbaits, squarebill cranks, lipless cranks, and for tossing a Spook and it works great for all of these.  No complaints so far.  Been using it for over a year. 

From: Jim: Paris, TN

Comments: I have the 7' crankin and the 7' 2" jig/worm rod and i love them both. the crankin rod has the perfect action for medium to deep cranks. if you throw alot of square bills and shallow runners you may want something with a little more backbone. the only compliant i have with either rod is that they are a little bit on the heavy side. but still have good sensitivity. cant beat them for the price

From: Chip: Siler City, NC

Comments: Actually, this rod's sensitivity is one of it's selling points! This rod, which I have 5 of now, is very sensitive but it still has a very good backbone to haul in big fish. Excellent rod for the money.

From: Tom" North Charleston, SC

Comments: Is this rod sensitive enough for Texas rigged worms and jigs. Hope I get a response from someone.

From: Jacob: LA

Comments: i just got the spinnerbait/worm rod in yesterday...right out of the box i saw tht the first guide ring had been bent and it had popped out..no biggy i can fix tht...but besides tht the rod is fantastic, i love the soft tip i can feel everything my spinnerbait hits and the backbone is great i can cast a country mile with this set up...i have a shimano caenan paired with this rod and i couldnt ask for mor in a spinnerbait combo...good job skeet reese!

From: Jacob: Lakeland, FL

Comments: Bought a Jig/Worm and Senko/Toad 7'2" models of these rods and use them for swim jigging exclusively and they are wonderful. They don't need to be very sensitive for that kind of work and but feel enough and the power is brutal.

From: L.J.: Sac, CA

Comments: I have the 7' S-glass cranking rod and while I love the rod it has one very big problem with it. The reel seat can turn 360 degrees on the blank while you're fishing to the point where the eyes on the rod are pointing straight down like a spinning rod. I've only fished with this rod 2-3 times before this issue began happening. As I said I love this rod other then that, I can really sling a 6XD with this rod of I need to.

From: John: Evans, GA

Comments: I have the senko/toad rod and love it. Really light and affordable.

From: Dunnellon, FL

Comments: Spinnerbait/Worm rod is pretty decent I prefer a Duckett but a Duckett is 70$ more so good for the money.

From: Kyler: TX

Comments: i like the jig/ worm rod, love the swimbait/ carolina rig rod for swimjigs, and hate the 8 ft flipping stick, i used to like it but then it snapped. id like it a little more if it snapped on a nice fish, but when a flipping stick loses to a 14 inch largemouth, you lose some respect for it.

From: Max: WI

Comments: The 8' Flipping stick has the best action for flipping and no one has been able to match it and i have never heard of them breaking.... Awesome rod would reccomend, but personally dont like the rest of them :/

From: Samuel

Comments: i can honestly say im disappionted with this rod... i have the 7' 2" jig/worm and i can never hook up with the fish, the rod has great backbone, but the tip is so soft you could throw a crankbait on it without problem. but i can never get a good  hookset with this rod because of it... so go out and get a veritas or a carrot stix... you wont go back.

From: Matt: Carbondale, IL

Comments: I have the spinner/worm 7'. Man what I rod! You can feel every little bump and the action is great. I also have the swimbait/c-rig and the jig/worm. My next one will be the 7' crankin.
