Bassmaster Elite Series pro, Brent Chapman used the Wright & McGill Rick Clunn S-Glass Reaction Rods in route to his 2012 Elite Series Angler-of-the-Year Title!
"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.
The Wright & McGill Skeet Tessera Spinning Rods were designed closely with 2009 Bassmaster Classic Champion Skeet Reese and feature a unique build process designed to create thinner blanks with increased durability and performance. The distinctive build 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 blank that is extremely strong and has increased compression resistance. Lastly, the blank is 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.
The Wright & McGill Skeet Reese Signature Series Spinning Rods wouldn't be complete without premium components though, including zirconium oxide guides for reduced weight and improved casting distance. The split-grip handle design also assists with weight reduction and combined with the large fighting butt delivers excellent balance and leverage. Furnishing all day comfort and a secure grip, the revolutionary molded rubber handles are designed not to dampen the sensitivity emanating into the angler's hands. Complete with Skeet's signature black and yellow coloring, the Wright & McGill Tessera Spinning Rods provide the ultimate in technique specific performance for an extremely reasonable price.
Comments: it's been a good rod but in between the second and top guides it is bent so im worried
Comments: Great shakyhead rod!
Comments: flimsy rod not worth the cash would no reccomend it
From: South FL
Comments: Don't listen to the people who say these rods suck or they break too easy. They probably don't know how take care of a rod. I own the 7' 2" drop shot/ split shot rod and all I can say is WOW!!! It is super sensitive that i can literally feel the slightest tick from a bluegill. This rod pretty much won me my b.a.s.s. fed. state championship and got me second in the TBF high school fishing state championship. Trust me when I say this rod is SUPER sensitive.

Comments: Broke mine in a tournament as well on a 7 pound bass in the Lilly pads under the 3rd eye this rod is a waste of money
From: Daniel: AL
Comments: Fished with my 6'11" spinning rod for only the 3rd time on Saturday and it was in a tournament. Broke the rod under the 3rd eye setting the hook on a 14" dink. Needless to say, that ruined my whole day. Hard to pay $30 plus shipping for a replacement knowing that it will probably happen again.

Comments: I have several of these spinning and casting Tessera rods. I love these rods and have never broken one until i landed a fish and stepped on it. The shakey head rod is the best rod ive ever used! Great price and quality for $90 bucks! Will be buying more of these in a few weeks! thanks SKEET!
From: Allen: Lynchburg, VA
Comments: I purchased the 6'11 Shakey Head rod and was poorly disappointed. I broke the rod the first day I had it while fishing a tournament setting the hook on a 2 pound fish. I agree that it is pretty lame that to get another one I have to pay for shipping plus 30 dollars on a 90 dollar rod to get it replaced.
Comments: I own the 6'11" shaky head & 7'2" drop shot spinning models and the 7' & 7'10" crankin models.
I have not had any issues to date with these rods! Very good quality and price point. the sensitivity is not quite as well as other manufacturers... but the other rods that are more sensitive cost more! I am a fisherman that uses the rod to feel the fish, then set the hook and swim the fish to the boat. Rods are not designed to be used as a hoist or leverage tools, that what dip nets are made for! Great rods! Thanks! W.M. & T.W.!

Comments: First of all who is killing the elite sereies right now, and this guy doesnt know what he is talking about because these rods are very durable so dont let this guy change your mind about buying a tessera. He just probably didnt take care of his stuff. Also i have owned this rod for 20 years and they have never broken on me deerrrrr.
Comments:I've been fishing for 20 years and have never busted a rod lifting a 1.5lb bass out of the water with a rod until I used the Tessera. I've used Quantum, Daiwa, Falcon, Shimano and All Star. I loved the rod up until that point. I called the company and had nothing less than a bad experience with customer relations. I was thinking of getting a whole set of the rods until that happened. I'm not sure if it was a bad rod but I don't feel I should pay shipping and 30 dollars for a new one. The rod was less than 2 months old and was treated like a baby. Hopefully I hear back from you guys and keep me as a customer. Thanks
