The Curated Take
This is an excellent rod for trout and panfish anglers, especially when using small micro-jigs. This is a versatile rod. I fish small streams with it and I've had success using a variety of lures, but I've loved it for fishing small jigs. I use the 7ft ultralight version, but for the waters I fish, I think that the 6' or 5'6" options would have been ideal. Even with the 7' rod, I found that it was able to make accurate casts which is crucial in small streams with lots of rocks and bushes along the bank. I did, however find that I wasn't able to get the casting distance that I had expected with it, but in the waters that I was fishing, it wasn't a big issue. I also tried using it to target bass on a ned rig, but it didn't quite have the power needed to get a good hookset, at least on the ned jig heads that I was using.
All in all, this is an excellent spinning rod for ultralight anglers who need an affordable rod that's lightweight and sensitive, and is capable of making accurate casts at relatively short distances.
- Performance: Soft, fast tip for easy hooksets
- Versatility: It's perfect for my spinners, spoons, jigs, and micro-crankbaits
- Quality: Sensitive, balanced blank feels durable and well-designed
- Casting Ease: I wasn't able to get the casting distance I expected
