You guys can bash them all you want. I wouldn't pay the new price of $200 for one but they are very competitive at the $150 price point IMO. I have two and I love both of them. They're sensitive for the price and they're ridiculously light. I don't care about the press they get (although I commend Duckett for doing what he thinks is right) they work perfectly well for me.

How many of you guys that are bashing them actually own or have used one?

I'm not bashing them at all. I've shaken quite a few at the stores but I like a traditional look and feel. Need my cork :)

Ya gotta admit, they look ridiculous....just a little...maybe? :) :) :)

Don't mind me, I'm old. ;D

Me, hey, right here! I had two and hated them equally! They both broke for no apparent reason besides poor quality! Competitive at $150, you kiddin right!?! Powell, Kistler, Shimano, Fenwick just to name a few in the price range all with Fuji components and proven performance!!!!!!!

like i said, ive fished them a ton......in the store..........lol.

let me ask you, what brought you to buy a Carrot Stix or any other rod/reel? the feedback on this forum is probably 100% responsible for me not buying some gear and 60% responsible for the current gear i have.

i dont have to use them on the water, some boys i respect a ton did that for me.

thanks guys!!!!

CT Smallie: I wouldn't have picked orange either, bash them for how they look as much as you want, I completely understand, the aren't for everyone aesthetically speaking

Muddy: Don't know what a centabo is? :)

Dink: I had one break as well, I got it replaced under the warranty. GLXs are very brittle and have been known to break if you're not careful, yet nobody complains about them? As far as the guides, seriously, give me a break. On all the rods I have built, I've used fuji guides, but believe it or not, it is possible for other companies to make decent guides as well. People get in their head that if its not fuji, it sucks, this isn't the case. If you hated yours though, thats cool, at least you've used them, so many people bash products without having any experience with them first.

I like mine quite a bit.  It has a solid backbone and is very light, for the price and a lifetime warranty I think its a solid product.

Carrot Stix are crap.  Do yourself a favor and go Powell.  Powell actually honors their warranty and their prices are right near Carrot Stix.

I just broke two Loomis rods yesterday, a GLX and an IMX. The breaks are so clean you would swear someone cut them. You bet I'm not exactly happy about it either. That's alot of hard earned freaking cash right there plus the 65.00 expeditor fee. I have never broken a rod in my life before so I consider myself careful in that regard but I've done worse by accident to my 15 year old Micro Lite that cost me 39.99 back then and it's still fishing. Then again, so am I and that's why I haven't and didn't blow my top at Loomis today. I do think they are way overpriced too BTW. They fish like nothing I've ever owned and that's worth it in my book. I did try other rods too and brought them back. Shimano's, Cabela's, Bass Pro, Falcon, St Croix and other Loomis models come to mind.

Yes, if E21 goes down, carrot stix owners are screwed, but I have no idea where people are getting that E21 is going to crumble. Duckett leaves them and everyone assumes the companies about to declare bankruptcy

The same place any lifetime warranty would go if a company went out of business.

Why would E21 go down? Do you know that E21 is primarily a golf company? They aren't going down. Boyd Duckett's actions do not change the way I feel about E21.

I like how people crap all over E21 when one of their rods breaks just because they are new at fishing rods. I really, really, really, really doubt these rods break on their own. Nobody bashes G. Loomis or St. Croix when they break their rods.

Are these rods worth $200? Maybe not. Nobody has even listed a source for this claim. Are they one of the best $150 rods out there? Yes.
