well, you guys would be disappointed in me for buying this ;D

it is a bass pro shops power plus trophy class.

its rated for 1-4 oz baits.

7' long, H power.

EVA foam handles

9 guides (all of which are double footed except the tip top)

pretty heavy freakin rod!

2 piece.

25 dolla price tag 8-)

i know you all will view it as a piece of crap, but i view it as a rod that can cast swimbaits in order for me to see if they will produce in my area, and then i can upgrade ;)

Congratulations on the new rod.  Doesnt matter if you spend $25 or $250 on a rod, if it gets the job done then it serves its purpose. :(

Now go stick a hog with it. ;)

made a bunch of casts with a 2.5oz weight.

this rod handles it suprisingly well!!! it was launching them a good 80-90 yards. i think im gonna have to upgrade to a larger spooled reel, because i could see the metal underneath my line at the end of my cast.

but aside from being heavy, the rod preforms pretty darn good. well worth the 25 bucks i paid for it. i noticed a lot of flaws in the finish (finger prints in the epoxy, scuffs, etc.) and that may be why the price is so low, but on a 25 dollar rod, im not worried about what the finish looks like.

all in all, i would reccomend this rod for any beginner swimbaiter who is not quite sure if they wanna make a huge commitment  ;)
