    ANYBODY USED THESE? I JUST GOT ONE YESTERDAY AND HOPEFULLY TODAY I CAN TRY IT OUT...I TRIED TO FLING 9 OZ WITH IT LAST NIGHT AND DIDNT DO TO WELL BUT BACKED OFF TO BOUT 3 OR 4 OZ AND THOUGHT MY WEIGHT FELL OFF THEN FINALLY HEARD IT HIT THE WATER.. THE THING IS BUILT LIKE A BROOM HANDLE.

    I've got one that is a 2pc. I use it for dip baits only. Not my first choice for big cat rod.

    I would look to see if the rod has a lure rating. I would guess it is probably rated aroud 1-4oz. I doubt that rod can handle 8oz.

    I've got one that is 8 foot, doesn't have much back bone at all for the size rod it is. I caught a 30 lb redfish on it and it took me forever to get him in.

    They are decent rods. I've just got the 8ft model and it does really well with 1-4oz weights. Much more than that and it's just too much for the rod.

    I had one and gave it away, I need to cast 8-0z weights, the rod would not do it..Overall a kinda whimpy rod in my opnion.

    My son bought one and when we use it we put a 3oz sinker on it max and a nightcrawler.....cant handle much more than that.Wouldnt recommend it.He has since bought a tiger and loves it.It will throw 6 and bait easy.

    I caught a 33 lb blue in 5 min one the 10 foot model.It wouldn't be my first choice in cheap rods(I would go with a King Kat).I have slung 16 oz weight and use 8 oz pretty much all the time.I think it handles 8 oz ok.I did have 2 break on me.But it wasn't on a fish or casting.It was from me falling off hills and things of that sort.I think it will handle fish under 40 lbs Ok depending on what current your in.

    I have this rod in 9' and it is more than capable of landing "BIG FISH". I use 3 & 4 oz sinkers and fish with live bluegills and cutbaits. It can gett'er done!:big_smile:
