great rods

I have several of the lightning rods in different lengths and actions for different fishing purposes. as far as the casting rods I like my 6' 6" medium action rod I fish a small river in Iowa "shell rock river" for walleye and pike I try to stay away from the bass. my casting rods are all sensitive on the tip and have plenty of backbone to lay the hook in the lip and also have worked well for me in canada the larger musky. As far as the spinning rods I stick to mu medium/light 6' rods for the walleye and can tell you the layout of the bottom by the feel of my rod. I have a lot of fish on the wall and none of them were to much for the lightning rod to handle.

Great rod for the $

I own about 6 or 7 of these rods and have never broke one yet (knock on wood). I have one med/light spinning rod for trout and panfish. The rest are med/heavy and heavy casting rods. They aren't the most sensitive rod but they have good back bone, a fairly soft tip, and are a tough rod. I have a few high dollar rods that are better, but for the money you can't go wrong!

I have several Lightening Rods

The Lightening Rod casting rods that I own are medium and medium heavy rods ranging in length from 5 1/2 - 7 feet in length. Being graphite rods they are very light weight and sensitive. They are a very stiff rod making them In my opinion not suitable for panfish, walleye or trout fishing. They are a pleasure to use for continuous casting or retrieving for bass with either a bait caster or a spincast reel. Being made of such stiff graphite they are likely to break if one hooks a large catfish or pike. One of my medium action Lightening Rods that is rated for 8 - 14 lb line broke while using 6 lb line. The rod snapped like a dry twig with less than 2 pounds of weight. That is my loss since they have a very short warranty as compared to many other brands. If you are looking for a good rod that is somewhat stiff for bass. You might try the Cabela's Fish Eagle 2. The one that I have is medium heavy and it is the most sensitive rod of all of the many rods that I own. It is my favorite for continuous casting and retrieving. If you want less expensive the Ugly Stik and the Whuppin' Stick are also hard to beat.

Won't hold my reel.

Purchased one of these a month or so back and finally got to try it the other day. I noticed when I initially put a BPS Pro Qualifier on it that it didn't look quite as stable as I wanted. First cast the other day and the reel started wobbling and I had to hold it on the rod to get my line back in. Try as I might I just couldn't get it to tighten up enough and if I kept trying to get it tighter it would just lose its grip and pop back off.
