I needed a stiff rod for a specific situation and didn't want to spend much money - this rod fits the bill. However, I would not recommend it for general fishing or learning to cast as it lacks any real line sensitivity - you just don't have a good feel for what the line is doing. If you are a beginner stay away from this rod - buy a nice mid-flex that you can feel load.
It casts very similar to the TFO Mangrove but has a lighter feel to it.
Nice and light. I really think 10 weight for the pike and musky i fish for is not needed, but it handles large streams so well. Much lighter then my 8WT. I can cast thing thing all day long. Much cheaper on amazon over local sporting goods stores. This rod will not disappoint.
Worst quality rod I have ever used. I got one and it was broken on the first cast. Replacement rod came and it exploded on a long back cast. I was testing these out before a trip to Patagonia... Good thing I didn't travel down there and have this happen. TFO really needs to improve their quality control. Will never buy another TFO.
