2.0 out of 5 stars not designed for braided line.
By dogdexter1 on June 20, 2017
Rod is durable except for the tip eye if you are using a braided line. I do a fair amount of fishing and within a month the front eye has grooves notched in it from 10 lb braided line. The notches create a very abrasive surface and destroys line at a furious pace.

5.0 out of 5 stars light rod but strong, 40" bull red tested
By Will H on January 21, 2018
Light rod but strong. We bought the 2 pc medium 7' version. The tip is very sensitive and flexible. The rod itself is pretty light and skinny, if I may use that word. The reel seat is a bit small and a challenge to put a 4000 size reel on it (Daiwa BG) but manageable. The eyelets are of high quality and work with braid lines just fine, unlike some comments mentioning that these stainless steel eyelets are not good with braids. That might be old lines a few years back. The line we used worked fine, from reaction tackle. The rod is light but has pretty good backbone, handling 1 to 2 oz sinkers with baits just fine. My son did a thorough test, by getting his personal best redfish with it, pulling in a 40" bull red just before New Year's day. He fought like 10 mins with the red making multiple runs (~10?). I think both he and the rod had a decent workout.

4.0 out of 5 stars Three Stars
By dunny on January 27, 2017
Good rod but showed up damaged. Scratched up and eyes were bent. The way they packaged it was crap.

Update: very durable rod. Have caught a number of nice sized fish to include Jack's, Snapper & Sharks. This rod handles them all with ease and hasn't even come close to breaking.
