This rod is notorious for breakingAdd me to the list of the people this rod broke on. I threw a medium sized lure and my rod broke just distal to the joint. It cracked right in half. I looked on the reviews under bass pro and another site, and there were 5-6 other people that had the same problem. I guess you get what you pay for. I mean, its only $15.

Snaped on FIRST cast!!!!!Bought this rod on 6/11/11 in Goodlettsville, TN. Fished in Drakes Creek, and on the FIRST cast the rod broke. It is stamped 12 to 25 lb. test line and Lure weight 3/4oz. to 4oz. I slung a 4oz. bank sinker only! I will stick with the Ugly Stick's! Academy in our area has a very poor selection of Big Fish Rods.
