Anyone have experience with the Rage line? Specifically spinning. I'd like some input as I can grab a mint 6'10 medium for pretty cheap on the marketplace

 

Thanks!

Owned one previously but wasn't a huge fan of the handle. Sold it to a buddy.

^  That's what it comes down to.  Seems you either like the neoprene or you hate it.  No question the blanks are great.  I have not handled spinning Rage rods.  But I love my 7'1" MF Rage casting rod.

How much is “pretty cheap”? When St. Croix discontinued them, they sold them of pretty cheap, I got mine new from the store in Park Falls, for less than $70.

$80 - it’s pretty much brand new and fished with 2-3 times

I have the same rod and I find the reel seat uncomfortable unless I choke up on it with 3 fingers in front.   I would handle it first to see if you like it.  The casting rods are great though

I liked the rod and the handle, but every one I had, the reel seat came loose during normal use.

I have three of them.  My 2 spinning rods have broken guides so they are awaiting for me to send them back to be repaired but my casting rod is still in the quiver for use.  I do really like them and the reel set never was an issue for me.  The guides are somewhat fragile but not too bad.  I figured out why mine were breaking though and it was totally user error in how I was traveling with them in my kayak.  

I am gonna send mine back to be repaired for sure.  Good rods and for $80 it is a good deal.  I don't think you will find another rod better for that kind of money out there.
