Casting rods Cables or BPS?

Recommended Posts

Are you only considering those two house brands and nothing else??  I'm thinking about getting into some Shimano rods myself.  There's at least 3 different ones under $100 that they make.

I have 3 Cabelas Fish Eagle II all 6'6" 2 med and one MH . They changed the handels on them and are clearing the old ones out

They sold for 79 Bucks. Go to the all BassResource.com sponsors and click onto Cabelas Bargin Cave, then to rods they are both still in stock at 40 BUCKS>>> GREAT ROD FOR A GREAT PRICE! 8-)

CHECK THIS OUT;

Go to the regular Cabelas Page, go to fresh water fishing, go to casting rods; Click onto Cbelas Classic Casting rodsa ( they sell for 20 bucks) when you get to that rods page, on the right is a list of similat products. The old Cabelas fish eagle II is ther for only 30BUCKS, i would buy it from that way and save even 10 bucks more

I do not care who makes it YOU CAN NOT FIND A BETTER ROD FOR 30 bucks.

I would look at other brands only I can't find any that sell for less than $100 sure some are for $99.95 but thats $100 after tax. I find that the best cheaper tackle is made by BPS or Cables.But if you have somthing  made by someone else for anywhere in-between $80-$50 please tell me. thanks

one thing i will say for the BPS rods is that if you break one, you take it back to the store, tehy hand you a new one, simple as that.

There are a lot of posts lately about BPS versus Cabelas gear.  I think both house brands offer great value and are supported with generous return policies.

I do worry sometimes that BPS offers "limited edition" versions of some of their more popular rods and reels at greatly reduced prices. Please know that if you buy a limited edition Pro-Qualifier or a limited edition Extreme, you are probably getting a lesser quality rod or reel.

good point....I stay away from those limited edition versions at both companies.

Fenwick HMX and Cabeklas Fish Eagle II's are better than every rod on your list, except the All Stars.  YOU CANT FISH WITH A WARRANTY!  I would rather fish products that you do not need to ever use the warranty, and by the way Cabelas has a very generous replacement policy , as long as you have some kind of reciept
