    I've got one, so far so good. Haven't really put it on a biggun though. Around here it's hard to find them with the long pole though.

    I bought my son one about a year ago , As far as the rod goes it's a nice looking rod made of E-Glass and the reel work's great ..You just need to set the bite alarm to macth the weight your using he has had zero problem's with this set up and he has caught quite a few channel's and striper's on it. Oh by the way it's not meant to sling heavy weight's if your going to fish slow moving water or lake's- resivior's it's a good choice for the price you'll spend.

    I just got back from Wal-Mart returning mine. The reel handle broke right off trying to break my 30# leader due to snagged hook. Thats plastic for ya.

    I bought 3 last year and used 1 of them once . I dont like the reels . They are wasting away in the garage . Probably will throw them in a yard sale or take to flea market .

    I bought one last year for channels but after breakin one of my flattie rods I spooled it up with 80 pound spiderwire and landed my biggeset flattie last year 41 pounds. it'll get the job done without a question.

    Yeah, it'll get the job done...If it doesn't break in the process.

    I have one, and personally I really do like it. The bait alert I believe was just a gimmick to get you to buy it, but this rod/reel is a BEAST!

    I got hung up last yar fishing Raccoon Lake, granted the line is what you would expect to break when snagged, I have to say what happened next was impressive... I pulled straight back on it, instead of the line breaking, the snag started moving! I ended up bringing to bank from across the spillway an entire section of a tree about 5 foot long, this thing was bigger than the diameter of a softball, and weighed quite a bit, water logged, and heavy!

    I havent had a single section of problem with it, and the setup will cast a country mile. I usually have a 1 - 2 ounce egg or no roll sinker on it, and use a leader abou 12 inches long, I can put bait anywhere anytime with this setup.

    I have caught just 1 flathead on it, 12.5 pounds. I have caught 2 channels on it, nothing to brag about!

    I bought two earlier this year. Had them out a bunch and been good so far. For the price its a not a bad set up. No doubt I will break them sooner or later.

    Get a Boss Hawg with an 808 or buy an Ugly Stick and put an 888 on it, at least it won't look as rediculous. Both should be MH rods.
    GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN FISHIN' !!!:cool2:

    if you're lookin for a really really good rod that won't break your pockets try the shakespeare sturdy sticks. I have 2 and love em! you can usually find em for like 20 bucks they have a great action and plenty of backbone to fight bigger fish.
