Highly competitive to more expensive rodshaving owned many top branded rods, I have since committed to buying H2O Xpress exclusively. Warranty is top notch and quality is second to none. Rod technology is my prime motivator in buying new equipment and H2O Xpress leads the competition in new tech at more affordable rates.

Keeps BreakingI bought 3 H2O Nano Eye 7' med./heavy fast action rods I had one break in half while fishing . I was able to swap it out with no problem at my local Academy store. since then a week later another one snaps in half while fishing . I take good care of my fishing poles I don't know what's the cause of the poles breaking but I will ask for a in store credit to purchase a different brand . Both poles snapped in the same area on small fish , yes it was upsetting but a good laugh for my fishing buddy .

great valueI own 2 of these rods and they are hard to beat for the price. Lightweight but definitely stiffer than rated. I like the fact that academy makes it easy for to exchange when a problem does arise.

Awesome Rod!!Bought this a few weeks ago and have throughly enjoyed it. I paired it up with a curado I and I have really enjoyed how the two compliment each other. Go ahead and buy a few. Not bad for the money and the warranty they come with couldn't be any better.

is this agood rod for punching grass mats
Asked by: benploch56
To punch a grass mat it is recommended that you choose a rod that is between 7'2" to 8'. A heavy action and fast tip is preferred and you should choose a rod that provides you with a good balance. You may use the H2O XPRESS Ethos Nano Casting Rod to punch grass mats under with the right specifications.
