    Anyone that owns one of these can tell me if it's a spinning rod? Would like it because I've been after a 6' or better UL rod that was one-piece.

    I have 6 of his 10' UL rods. And they will work with a spenning reel. but not like a standard rod.
    The eyes are small on them.

    I have a 7 ft. one piece and like it really well. Am using a lightweight underspin reel and it works great. The eyelets are small as PEte stated. With the eyes on top of rod it seems to be unbalanced. A spinning reel would likely work fine as long as your not trying to cast a great distance, but haven't tried one on mine yet. Good Luck!

    That's what i needed to know. I want it for a spinning rod to cast 1/32 and 1/16 jigs on.

    I use a 16 ft telescopic rod with a johnson century reel. can be used for jigging or trolling.

    Take a look at the BPS Micro Lite spinning rods. The graphite ones, not the fiberglass ones. I have a 7' but it's a 2 piece. I like it pretty good though.
