Kevin H. of Clearfield, UT - August, 04 2013:

I originally bought this rod to fish for bass, however, I've never used it for that. Instead I paired the 6' 8" med heavy/fast with an Abu Garcia 5600C4 and I use it to fish for Tiger Musky. The rod is ultralight yet strong. I can cast heavy and medium weight lures a mile and put great action on them during the retrieve. The rod is very sensitive and I can easily detect bites and "feel" the contours I'm fishing through. I've never been big on flashy looks for rods so the solid black scheme suits me. The trigger and reel seat are extremely comfortable and have yet to come loose during a full day of fishing. I'll eventually use this for bass once I get a new rod for musky. The only con I have so far is the foam grips. I've never been a fan, but I guess that's personal preference.

Brad Risinger of Bastrop, LA - November, 17 2014:

This is the worst rod I've ever owned. It is light, sensitive, and will break if you look at it to hard. I broke it the first time going out. I took it to the Sporting Goods store where I bought it. They didn't have one so they sent it to Shimano. In a couple weeks they sent me a new one. The first time I used it I caught a small Bass on a Spinnerbait. As I was reeling the fish in it broke about 6-8 inches from the tip. This is the same area the first one broke. I took it back to the same store and they had one, not the exact action and length, but one I liked better. (6'8" fast tip) I used it several times with no problem. I put a 10" worm on a Texas Rig and hung up on a log under water. I tried to "pop" the bait loose and the rod broke about 1" from the tip. I forgot it cost me $10.00 each time I got another rod. The last time I decided to not get a other one.
