Best Rod for the Money: PeriodI like glass rods for all moving baits. These rods fit this need perfectly. I bought a 6'6" MH version to use for my moving baits and have caught many bass using it with spinnerbaits, chatterbaits, topwater, and crankbaits. The biggest being nearly 9 pounds with numerous in the 5-6 pound range. This rod handled them like a charm. Very slow and forgiving action, which is needed with treble hook lures. I just bought a 7'0" M rod this evening at my local Academy and I can't wait to use it with smaller moving baits, topwater poppers and smaller spooks. I've used rods that were, literally, 20 times as expensive, and would confidently prefer this model. The only rod I like more is the St. Croix Triumph. I'd give this product seven stars if I could. Excellent purchase.

2 Broken RodsI bought this rod a couple of weeks ago for fathers day. Recieved it in the mail and about 4 inches of the rod was broken off. Local store had one and stock and they gladly exchanged it. The next rod I had did great until about 4 hours into fishing when the rod broken in the same spot.

Great Crankin' RodI bought this rod when Academy was having a deal for free shipping on two rods. Since shipping for the rod I was ordering was $18.00 I figured I would just buy this and get free shipping and a cheap backup rod instead. However I am extremely surprised. I decided to take this rod out to my home lake and tie a Spro Little John DD on it. I ended up landing my personal best bass just shy of 8 lbs. This rod has a great parabolic bend that allows the hooks the burry in the fish's mouth. I have used many higher end crankin' rods out there, and I'll have to say this rod can hold it's own especially for the price!
