It was worth the purchaseI purchase the road about a year ago. I do tournament fish so this rod gets used quite a bit. It is very well balanced. Puts up with a lot of punishment that I give it. I throw it in the back of my pickup from time to time, getting tossed around in the boat, getting stepped on, you name it. And in my opinion it's a very good quality rod worth the money.

Good rod....just check the reelseatI bought this rod to use with light jigs and soft plastics. I've put it thru the paces for a year now and found it to be up to the task....with a few caveats. First the bad...the real seat will come loose and needs to be checked every trip. The micro guides will make you think bad thoughts if you use braid with a leader. The knot hangs when line is retrieved past the rod tip. The handle is a bit too long to be comfortable when working slow baits like worms all day long. Otherwise, its got lots of backbone for a tough fight. It handled a 14lb. catfish without problems. The sensitivity is there, it has good feel with a 3/16 oz. up to 3/8 oz. worm weight tied on. The tip is firm enough to crawl a bait out of some pretty thick brush without hangups but light enough to feel those light taps. It cast accurately and smoothly, and feels good thru the 9:00 to 11:00 motion used when worming, although, the handle is a bit long for me to be comfortable. Bottom line..I like the rod..I just wish some of the length was between the guides and not in the handle and the reel seat was a little more secure. I rate this rod a 6 of 10 because of the reel seat.

Nice rodI bought the 6' 8" M micro when they were on sale as an extra jerkbait rod. Now it's usually a toss up if I'm going to use the H2O or my Avid. I have the H2O Mettle on it and have no issue with wobble from the reel. It loads nicely when casting jerkbaits and when I wind down on a fish.

loose real seatReals wobble even when real seat is tight. i tried an Abu Revo and a BPS Pro Qualifier reel and both wobble. I then took the Revo into the store and tried three different rods, they were all the same. The real seats are Fuji so i assume they are good quality. I assume it must be a problem with how the rods are put together. Its too bad, everything else about the rod is awesome for $80.
