    I must be the only hater :D I used one once, and thought it was pretty cheap feeling, and extremely soft. This was one that came with a trolling combo.

    HAHAHA...yours was the one I was talkin about :D
     
  8. For the price you can't go wrong. I caught plenty of steelhead on the 9 foot spinning.......JIM
     
  9. I use 2 of the 9 footers for lead core during tournaments. I'm not crazy about them except for the fact I lose very few fish on them. Very soft rods and lots of work with big fish.
     
  10. I agree with shakedown,

    I have held one and I also thought it was cheaply made as well as heavy.

    Feels like a cheap glass rod to me- and the Ugly Stiks (which these were compared to) have waaaaaaaaaaaaayy too slow an action for me. I don't like feeling the blank flex all the way into the handle. Fishing with a wet noodle doesn't do anything for me.

    On the other hand, glass rods can be great for trolling applications, crankbaits and live bait fishing. I've always felt that I don't care how much the rod costs, if I like it, it is worth whatever. I've had $150 rods that I hated and $30 rods that I loved.

    I think I am going to get one for my son, he likes to destroy things at his young age!

    Just as good as the Ugly Stik. I use Quantum PTI Spinning reels, and I have an 8ft Med-Heavy on my Quantum PTI 30. Alot cheaper than the ugly stick, and they are just as good. I like them better than the ugly stik.
