In fact a lot of the manufacturers will lay claim that they are the manufacturers of the best fishing to give you the ultimate fishing experience. However, how many times have we heard stories of people who are left vividly disappointed by a purchase that they have made complaining that the rod does not do what the manufacturers say or that the rod was not what was expected.

Such is the versatility of this rod that it is well loved by beginners and experts alike. With this rod you do not have to worry about the rod snapping or your catch getting away as it is capable of handling small fishes as well as large fishes, and no matter the size, it is you who will have control over your catch thus giving you assurance. This rod is a fairly medium priced fishing rod and I reiterate my stance that it is one of the best fishing rods available and that price makes it a real bargain as the performance of this rod is just unbelievable.

#3 - Another Rod and reel combo

Our rating, Our #3 pick!

The popularity of this rod is enormous! In my opinion many people gravitate towards this rod because of the really high performing standard in comparison to the really low price that it is being sold at. With this you get a fusion of the solid graphite rod that where the action is medium and a spinning reel thus giving you a really great fishing experience. Additionally, the durability and sturdiness of this fishing rod will serve you in the long run as this rod can be used for years without losing its performance intricate. What I think a lot of people admire about this rod is that whilst it can handle those fairly big tests the rod shows that it is one of the best fishing rods as it is also really sensitive enough to sense those smaller bites.

Some of the features of this rod include; reel that is ultra smooth, having a really fast speed retrieve, as well as its composite body that as I mentioned is made of graphite. Additionally it has 1 roller bearing drive, a couple of ball bearing, as well as infinite anti-reverse, Having an ABS aluminum spool that is front drag, having a hook keeper amongst many other really cool features. I must highlight the fact that the front drag gives a really great fighting experience with those fishes that you are pulling in. I would also say that this fishing rod is one of the best that a beginner could buy as it is really easy to use and the price makes this rod an absolute bargain especially if you are not sure if you want to consider doing fishing for a long time. So with price and performance, this is safely and by a long way one the best fishing rods available on the market. Being one of the best rods around for the price.
