I am sure they are fine rods (they are shimano), but i just dont like the look of the foam handles. But thats just me.

I posted this on another forum....hope it helps

my Cumara CUCX72M works nice in my living room so far. Gonna demo it tomarrow and sunday for further evaluation.

well I went out today in the rain for to test out the Cumara. geez...I wish I could say I caught a few fish on it but nada....threw my swimbaits most of the day but did put a little time in on the Cumara.

I threw 1/4-1/2oz t-rigs,1/4-1/2oz jigs and a 3/16oz dropshot rig. On a Daiwa Zillion w/15lb Seaguar Invizx. All of the baits casted and handled wonderfully. The rod is very light and well balanced and is very comfortable imo. Mainly because I hold my casting rods with my index finger under the line and the small foam foregrip is just big enough for your middle finger to rest on. I did get a few bites and they telegraphed very well however the wind and rain made it a little tougher to stay in position and capitalize.

until I can put some more time behind the rod and try different lines I would initially say its a pleasure to use you owe it to yourself to atleast handle one.

to be continued.....

I would like to get my grimy little mitts on one to see how it balances and feels.   From the pictures and what I've read about them, I think Shimano has hit a home run with this rod line.  The carbon content appears to be high enough that they should be very sensitive.  I betting these rods will be hot sellers if they handle as good as they look.
