Rated 3 out of 5 by Mitchbargo from SNAP I bought this rod about a month ago in a 7 ft medium. Love the features of the rod and I caught plenty of big fish the 4 times I used it, but yesterday it snapped just above the real seat out of nowhere. I have babied this rod because it was a replacement for my black max that just broke too. I have never broken a rod in my life until this summer and now two of my Abu Garcia's broke. Love the products if they would only last.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Scottymac from Great finesse jig rod bought this rod at the beginning of the 2014 season and it performed excellently all year. I mostly throw 1/8-3/16 ounce jigs. The stiff tip provides excellent sensitivity and a firm hookset past the weed guard. It casts compact baits a mile and skips them like a dream. Landed multiple 4+ pound fish

Rated 5 out of 5 by JimmyR from Great rod Been out with this rod a few times and I love the way it feels. Veryn good response. Had a bass pro brand that broke right away so I replaced it with the vendetta and it's the best rod I have owned so far.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rstutes from Not impressed Let me start by stating that I have been a loyal Abu Garcia reel owner for about 20 years now. For my money, hands down the absolute best around, the REVO low pro. series reels are my new favorite. Ive been buying Abu products since the since the 5000 series "drum" type baitcast reels were the hottest new thing out there. As for their rods, in my opinion the leave MUCH to be desired. My first Abu Garcia rod purchase was this 6'9" vendetta spin cast when it first hit the market MSRP or $199.99. First off, for an "extra fast" rod, I found it to be very stiff. Also, i do realize the higher the carbon/graphite content, the lighter the rod. I was happy with the overall weight of the rig but it didnt take me long to realize what I was giving up for those couple extra ounces. On my second trip out, (I mainly used this rod for specks) I hooked into an avg. size trout for my area, the rod snapped into 2 pieces just above the 2nd eyelet. The break was clean at the tension side of the rod and had very little fragmentation or sharding on the compressive side of the rod. I am extremely disappointed in this purchase and will not be buying another Abu rod. However, I will continue to buy and use Abu reels, as I have been a satisfied customer for 20 years. I aslo cannot comment on customer service because I didnt even bother trying to get a warranty replacement for the rod. I dont want another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Burnz from Exceeds all expectations First time I used this pole I thought it was going to break first cast Because of how light weight it was and that it would not hold up the fish that I was hoping to catch. Well it proved me way wrong i have gone fishing all year and have never had a problem getting good size fish in the boat the sensitivity is great I know when I got a bite or if I'm hitting weeds or rocks also I like the finger grip placement it's comfortable and I could fish all day with no discomfort I have this pole set up with the revo SX and it is great my buddy switch to my set up after he used it and he had a veritas so over all the best pole for the price!!!!!!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by JCJP from Inner ring of the tip top came off 1st time using. I bought this fishing rod brand new around three years ago from a store on Ebay. The rod is brand new the first time I use it on September 19, 2015. I only cast the line around four times using the rod and an Abu Garcia casting, and the inner ring of the tip top came off. I transport the rod in my car and my friend's car because I stopped by his house and we went with his car. We have an SUV and a sedan and the third fishing guide counting from the butt guide including the butt guide was bent all the way down to nearly touching the fishing rod. I bent the guide back to nearly it's original place. This really disappointed me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BassmanHank from Disappointed in the quality I purchased this rod almost 2 months ago 7'6'' med/heavy I fish everyday literary unless it rains. I've caught many fish bass with it in that time few big one none huge. Last week I was worm fishing Texas rigged with it and went to set my hook a the rod snapped. The only thing I've done different this time is I had just lined my reel with 20lb. Power pro braid but that shouldn't have been the reason and when it did snap it cut my braid so I didn't even get my fish anyone else have this happen. Another thing 2 weeks ago I bought a a black max and earlier today I went to cast it and the trigger busted I know that both the rod and the reel are not the high end products that Abu Garcia offers but I can't help but feel like if I don't spend cash for the high end products I won't get the quality that I use to get. But it is what is I'm gonna give it one more shot and go get me a 7' med/heavy casting rod for $50 at Wal-Mart and see how it plays out hope I don't reget it.
