Powell Diesel Baitcaster?

Recommended Posts

Anyone ever use the casting version of these? For the money they sure look good to my eye. I'm looking for the 7'2" version MH for half oz jigs. Would this be a good rod? Is there good sensitivity?

What does everyone think of these rods?

I have owned that rod before. Its a good rod for jigs. Its sensitive enough and strong. Go for it!

I use the crankbait version. If I broke it tomorrow, I'd have another one on the way tomorrow night.

I have the 7'2 and 7'6 casting rods plus 2 of the 6'10 spinning rods. It's a tad heavy but with a heavier reel it balances fine. They are the cheapest rods in my arsenal and I'll buy more if the lineup expands or I break one.

I have the 7'2" Med Heavy.  I am not impressed.  It's a stout rod.....good for frogs, perhaps heavy jigs.  I do not find it that sensitive.

 

After all the hoopla that everyone was raving about it, I feel it is a good $50 rod......period.  It sits in the closet as I speak.

 

I have admit:  I have about 20 rods......so I am aware of the good and bad points of each.  It is not a bad rod at all..    It's just not a good enough rod......for me. 

 

Other opinions will certainly vary and I do realize I'm in the minority.  

 

I will use it as the rod I loan to a guy that fishes in my boat. 

 

The reason I bought it was of the cheap price.  I definitely got what I paid for.
