    Any body ever tried one of these rods. They seem to be put together well and priced very cheap. Any input fellas? Thanks

    I bought my wife the 8 ft model and she has pulled in her PB blue of 40 plus on it. She uses an zebco 808 on it.

    I have an 8 foot and for the money, I can overlook the crooked eyes... it seems like a good value for the money. Has nice action and seems to cast well.

    My reel fits nicely, unlike my Rhino which broke the rear of the reel seat when I installed the reel... (it's now a big drink stirrer....)

    The HT rod lines are actually developed by the IN-FISHERMAN boys, they do not endorse their products on most of the shows, probably make more $ for using the sponsors products, Me and a buddy use the HT COAST MASTER CLASSIC RODS 7 ft heavy action......... They are some great cattin rods

    I have 2 of them rods 9' MH Spinning.. Had them or 3 or 4 years and they have done well for me. Havn't hung any 60# hogs on them but would trust them if I did
