Great Fresh or Salt water RodI came across this rod looking for something for a trip the Texas coast. Well I bought two and for the price this is a great deal. It will work great for both fresh and any salt water options.

BROKE ON SECOND USERod is rated for 4oz lure. I had a 2oz egg sinker and a little shrimp on the hook. I went to cast into the surf, and the rod snapped just above the eyelet on the top section. Good thing i had my shakespear combo as a back up or the day at the beach would have been over. This was only the second time I used this rod. I took the pile of dung back to Academy. They were very helpful and gave me a refund. I took the 20 bucks to walmart and bought a berkley big game 8' spinning rod. Very pleased with it so far. I wish academy carried the berkley big game power series.
