It's OKI bought this pole as a backup to put a small baitcaster on and it did the trick. It was able to handle a nice size bass and redfish with no problem. The action is more stiff than the 7 foot version but that is ok for me. The only issues I have are the same with the 7 foot version,the handle is too long and the two pieces come apart sometimes if not properly connected. But it seems to be very sturdy and for the price handles well.
