I paired this casting rod with the pflueger cetina baitcast reel, and this rod has held up to pitching mats/bulrushes, finesse at 6 - 15ft and tubes/jigs in 20ft of water, Also while bass fishing hooked in two 27in pike one after another and this rod didnt even make a noise.

the guides tend to break really easy under loads theres alot of talk about the poles breaking in half but mine is still holding strong i caught a 19 in large mouth bass and it was completely wild but my rod held up to the test but unfortunely the creel limit is 20in so i had to throw back lol ceder creek lake in standford ky bass can measure 26in and can weigh 9 to 15 pounds

I ordered this rod a week ago along with a Silvermax reel, the reel is great for the money so far. I have had an itch to hit the water since I received it. I went out an hour ago and hung into around a 3.5lb-4lb largemouth and got the hook set and the bass rolled and snapped the pole at the third eye from the tip. I own other Abu products and they are great, but this rod isn't worth what it cost. 1st fish and it snapped, I am extremely disappointed in this rod. I added the picture of the fish and the damage to the pole.
