Clarus Rods, what is the consensus

Recommended Posts

What is the consensus on these rods?  Are they a decent rod, and I don't mean for the money, but are they a good rod.  How is the sensitivity, strength, power and all that.  I know they have a lifetime guarantee, which I would hope to never have to use, any way let me know your thoughts on these rods.  FWIW, I guess I'm cheap but I have a hard time spending more than a 100 bucks on a rod, up to this point the most I've spent is 50 for a new Quantum PT Tour Grade rod.  If you knew how hard I am on my rods you would understand why I have a hard time spending a lot of $$ on a rod.  I don't think I have a rod that I haven't broke the tip off of.  I'm pretty sure I overheated the Quantum rod when replacing the tip on it, so I guess it is ruined.

I like the Clarus rods. I think they feel comfortable in my hand. I also think they are relatively sensitive. Are there better rods? Yes. I also have 2 Compre rods. I think the Compre is a better rod, but the Clarus is nice. I have owned 3. One ultra lite, one med heavy and a new medium. I like the price of the rod and do not think that there will be a better rod for the money.

I use a clarus (6-12, 6'6 rod for pond fishing and it works well.  I did take it out for snook and it handled 24-26" snook

( probably 5# range) quite handily.  I would not recommend it for high banked canals or sea walls, get the next size up in 7', that will be fine.

They are a good rod. I also have a compre and a crucial and can tell you things get better as you go up the line, but the Clarus is more than adequate.
