Gander Mtn Gsx Elite Rod?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any experience with these rods?  They are apparently toray 40 blanks, and have guides that look pretty good.  Sounds like a great package for around $100.  I am planning on getting a few extra rods this year.  I currently have a powell max 7' 1" H extra fast with lews tourney pro.  Veritas 7'3" MH fast with revo s.  2 bps extreme medium spinning rods with shimano sahara reels.  I am looking to get some more baitcast combos.

I have one of the spinning rods, build quality is what you would see in most rods around the 100 dollar price point, however in terms of sensitivity it surprised me.

There was a thread on TT about these being equivilant to the ***. They arent bur heres a thread that explains a lot after the poster finally understands that all 40t blanks arent created equal

They're built with the same base material as the ***, blanks aren't the same. They're comparable to the *** in terms of sensitivity. They're slightly tip heavy, and just a little heavy overall, but for the money they're pretty nice rods. Bonus: they match the slew of black/red reels the market is flooded with.

I was at Gander Mountain today so I had the opportunity to compare both the *** rod and the Gander GSX side by side, both are nice rods with the nod in build quality going to the *** offering, I preferred the handle on the GSX. In terms of sensitivity I don't have much to compare to as I don't fish many spinning setups, I do have an Abu Veritas and a Falcon Lowrider, I feel that the GSX is better than the Veritas and on par with low rider. Your experience may vary.

I had a chuckle when on page 2 the OP stated that a rods weight was subjective to the angler instead of an objectively stated piece of info..... :jaw-drop:
