Skeet Reese Rods!

Recommended Posts

So, after seeing everyone and their brother walk around with Skeet Reese rods at the Expo, I have to ask. How good are they? I bought one just to buy it (and for the free jersey  ;)), but I live in central Michigan and can't really try it out for a few months ;).

So I'm just curious has anyone that lives farther south strapped a reel on one and actually tried it out? As a poor college kid I can respect the life time warranty and the price point of the rods, but I don't always like to sacrifice quality if I can afford not to.

So, what does everyone think of them?

So your a "poor college kid" as you put it, but your buying rods "just to buy them" and for free shirts? Then ask what people think of the rod? Yeah..............that seems like a rational way to buy a rod on a "poor college kid" budget  :;)

Haha yea I get it...I guess I just like to try a lot of different rods. And I allotted so much money to spend at the Classic and it fell within my limit.

But back to the point, has anyone go to try one out yet?

Haha, I actually went and bought one today...the 7'2'' Jig/Worm rod and gave it a test run today...I paired it up with my Citica and it felt great.  I stayed out for about 2 hours in 50 degree weather with gusts that were knocking my hat off my head.  I wanted to see how well it would hold up casting into the wind, and it performed beyond my expectations (both reel and rod).  Can't wait to get out there when the conditions are better.

Well that's good news! I picked up the worm/spinnerbait rod so I can't wait to give it a try. If I like it I will probably get a couple cranking and flipping ones before the season starts. Am I the only one who really likes his rods to all match?

Thanks mctech, usually if I like it I don't care, I just haven't had a chance to even hold it yet besides right before I bought it. I was just looking for opinions on how it felt/cast, etc.

Thanks to everyone who posted.

I have the jig/worm rod and the spinnerbait/worm rod. I really like the jig/worm rod but I'm still a little iffy on the spinnerbait rod its a little flimsy.

I got the spinnerbait/worm rod and I am now wondering about it. The tip seems really fast for any kind of worm fishing, I might use it for smaller spinnerbaits and maybe finese worms/jigs.

For this very reason I bought the same rod, but for lipless cranks/shallow or med cranks.

I bet someone has already touched on it, but when i was looking into getting one i didnt like them one bit. They reminded me of my old ugly stick too whippy. They also were alot heavier than other rods in that price range such as the Quantum Alliance and the Vendetta.
