Shimano Compre rods...

Recommended Posts

Bought a couple of Compre rods off of a buddy of mine. Both casting, one is 6'6", med. power, med fast action and the other is 6'10", med/heavy power, extra fast action. Gave $50.00 a piece. Wondering if anybody has used the Compres and what they thought of them.

Thanx for any input. :)

To sum it up in one word, AWESOME. @ $50 a piece, you ought to be guilty of either a steal of a deal or highway robbery. :) ;D

Congrats. They are an excellent line of rods. I don't have those particular models but given how mine treats me, you're in good hands.

The best part is the warranty. I bought 4 rods for $100.00 (3 compres & one other shimano rod) One of the Compre's had a broken tip. Bass pro handed me a new one off the rack no questions asked. Lifetime warranty is hard to beat especially at the Compre price point. I have some more expensive rods, but none are a better value than the Compre.

i would like to second the warranty comment. it is great, especially at this price point. i think after the compres mojos with their 5 year warranty are the closest ones. not to mention they are quite sensitive and lightweight

Compres are awesome. Sounds like you got a crankbait rod there with that medium/medium fast. If the model is cpcc66mb then that's what it is. And the other one is a short flippin/pitchin rod. This was told to me by Bantam1 who used to post on this board and works for Shimano. Model number cpcx610mhb if that's it. I always thought that one would make an excellent spinnerbait rod also.

I love the Compres I have, no question this is easily the best value in fishing for the money it costs compared to what you get in return.  Very light weight and sensitive.

the rods you just got will ruin you forever one getting others at higher prices. you will now have to "talk yourself into" a crucial.
