Budget Priced Micro Rods

Recommended Posts

Saw Quantum Response at Gander. They are 59.99 which is the cheapest Ive ever seen a microguide rod for. Im not a rod expert but they felt pretty good. Dicks Sporting Goods also has new TEC SPEC rods that are 79.99 called elite and you can use the 10 dollar off coupon if needed. They are blue in color and the normal one were black so you will notice them right away of they are in your store. They come in 3 different models I believe. Im sure there are other inexpensive rods that are out there.

Here's the Quantum specs

They are 49.99 now at Gander....they feel pretty darn light, as light or lighter than a carrot stix pg in the same rating...11 micro guides on them. I may get one in 6 6 medium and demote my berkley to garage status

Looks like a pretty good deal on that rod. Its worth a try at 50 bucks for sure. They veritas micro rods are priced around the 100 dollar mark which is also a good bang for your buck microguide rod.

I'll have to stop buy dicks to check those rods out. Was going to buy a veritas micro guide since I have 2 regular ones but the tec specs are in blue?That's my favorite color...

I used the Quantum Response quite a bit this weekend and came away very impressed. I paired it up with a Quantum reel and flourocarbon line. Sensitivity wise, I like it better than my Lamiglass Excell (It's been moved to spinnerbait duty). The MH has lots of backbone. For the price I would buy more, no question.
