Has anyone purchase an All Pro rod?

Recommended Posts

I am debating about spending more than I normally would on a rod and I am considering either an All Pro rod or a KVD Quantum (from Bass Pro Shops) .  Has any one purchased an All Pro rod?  If so how do you like it?  I plan on buying a new rod in the next day or so.

I have never had a chance to put my hand on one.  I visited their website.  All their rods are made in the USA.  They are probably on par with the other high end rods from St. Croix, G-Loomis and the USA made Kistlers.  They are priced about the same.

They are made here in TN. They are good quality, especially the APX series.

For the money though, I would go another direction.

I personally like the split handle, no foregrip designs that are out there now (Powell, Kistler, Carrot Stick, Cumara by Shimano, etc.).

These designs have taken a lot of the weight out of the rods, which I like. It's a personal choice.

Loomis' branded rods and St. Croix Avids and lower priced St Croixs use a more traditional design with the cork foregrip and one piece handle. you'll find a lot of fans of their rods here, but I like the other design features better.

Don't you sometimes wish people would confine their answers to the question that you asked instead of offering solutions that you didn't ask about. I wish I could help you out but I know nothing about the rods you mentioned.

I contacted All Pro and they seem like a really good group of people, they spoke with me for about 30 minutes and asked me about the fishing I do and then told me what models they thought would be a good fit for me. I only found one thing I didn't like, they don't make a two piece rod and I prefer a two piece rod. I thanked them and told them that i would think about it.

After I hung up I took a drive to Bass Pro Shop to check out the KVD Quantum rod unfortunately they didn't have any in stock. I did however find a BPS Tourney Special model TYS70MHS-2 7" Med Hvy Action rod. It was regular $50 so I put a reel on it and checked it out it seemed pretty sweet. I decided to buy it and took it up to the register and low and behold it was on sale for $29.50 (almost half price). What a sweet bargain it turned out to be, I almost went back and bought a second one. But I also picked up some new tackle and I figured the wife would have been ticked if I came home with two rods and the tackle so I played it safe. I do have to have money left over for a nice Valentines Day gift for her.
