    Yeah my brother has one, It is okay, the tip is a little more flimsy than the ECATS, I really just have never has a rod that i like as much as the ECAT...I have had both of mine for about 6 years..I should have bought more than 2

    Im not sure, He likes it alot too, I just think the tip is a little more sensitive than the ECAT, cause last time we were at the Ohio, The current was keeping a slight bend in his rod tip, anad it was doing that to my ecats..I just think the ecats are sturdier

    Hmm Mines a medium heavy and small fish will barely take the tip down.

    I kind of wish they were ceramic, but I do love the rod. I liked my ugly stiks, but I love this rod.
