Awesome Rod!I bought this medium/heavy action rod because I fish for big blue cats. It does an excellent job. It's sensitive, but very sturdy. The only con is that the foam handle got some tears in it after a few uses, although I think that'll always be the case with foam handles. On a side note, I bought this rod at Bass Pro for 45 dollars...on "clearance". When I saw Academy had it for 17 dollars, I immediately returned it to Bass Pro. Academy has the best prices.

Great rod big bull reds and stripersIt may be luck but I have caught more fish on this rod than any of the other 10 different rods I have.You can horse a bull red to the boat with ease and make a quick release so as not to harm the fish.

Broke within one yearI bought two of these rods 10 months ago. The piece where the reel attaches just spins on one of the rod. Only used them 4 or 5 times.

good valueCant get a better ocean rod for the money. Not near as nice as the tiger pole but for only 1/3 of the price I have no complaints. Perfect for a loaner pole or just to have an extra on the boat without spending a lot of money. Pole works great for salmon but still has enough feel for bottom fishing. Would definitely recommend getting one
