Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The product that I bought is a one-piece, 6-foot spinning rod. This is a heavy rod for freshwater fishing. I bought this to pair up with a large capacity spinning reel to fish for large catfish. This is a great choice if you are looking for a spinning rod with enough backbone to handle large fish. As it is only a 6-foot model, don't expect great casting distance. Also, the primary guide on the rod is rather small for the weight class of line that the rod will handle (I am using 20-lb test), which tends to choke heavier line when casting. But, if you are looking for power and casting distance is not all that important then this rod is a good choice.
The Shakespear One-piece Bws 12 Sturdy Stik is a great rod for very small price. I especially like the solid one piece through the grip construction. I own six of these rods and use them for saltwater fishing on charter boats and they never let me down. Why pay more when you can get everything you need for under $50. I only wish they made the same rod in a two piece so it could be carried onboard a commercial aircraft more easily. If they did I would buy several more.
I have 4 of these i use for summer/fall striped bass trolling. Work great for 3oz weigths. My only complaints are the white has turned yellowish from the sun and 2 of them the front grip feels loose and if you really wrench down on the reel seat they will slip/jump a thread. But for 25 bucks each well worth it.
