Great look and feel for inshore fishingbought this to go with a new inshore reel and it has worked great; the 7' rod is exactly what I wanted and has some backbone to get the hook set on bigger fish and on flounder; will always try to get this rod with any new reels [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great for the priceI have had mine for about 2 years now. I go surf fishing at least 2 weekends times a month. My 2 friends also bought the same rod and none of us have had any issues with them at all. It stands up well in the heavy surf. Im about to get a second one.

worked greatI bought this rod reel combo in Oregon for salmon fishing did great landed a 42 lber and 6 or 7 others was so happy stored it for a few months broke it back out to go sea bass fishing the first fish of the day the handle snapped off I was able to get the fish into the boat about 5 lbs and as I was netting it the top broke off two eyelets down. Not a well made pole the walls are very thin maybe this was just a bad one my ugly stick works great but I will never buy this model again

nice rodUsed the TWSF1025S10 rod maybe four times for rock fishing. Using forty pound monofilament, managed to wear a groove in the tip eyelet as I was trying to get unstuck from a rock. Needless to say not too happy. Great rod for fishing the rocks though and managed to land a few nice Cabezon.

Nice Rod. Tip top fell off first time out!I bought this rod (TWBT2040C70) for flathead fishing on the St. Joe river in Michigan. First time out I hooked one and noticed the tip top was turned 180 degrees. Needless to say it fell off, line broke and lost the fish. Quality looks very good. I was shocked that something like that happened. Since I bought it online (they don't sell saltwater gear in Michigan, salt free, shark free) I had no way of checking it out completely before I bought it. To bad I had high hopes for this.

May as well be holding a concrete polebought this rod 6 weeks ago to try to add distance to my casting. I attached a Penn Fierce (larger) reel to it and had terrible results. Maybe it was my mistake in matching the two together. Anyways the rod was not sensitive at all and I could cast out further with the cheap 9 ft rod that the penn fierce combo was connected too.
