    Price Paid: 29
    Recommended: yes
    Cons: no info available on the web
    Pros: lightweight, sensitive, fuji components
    I haven\'t had this rod long, but so far am very happy with it, especially for the price. I got the 7\' 2-piece Spinning Rod. Nice weight, nice action, nice components. Got an extra 10% off for buying a reel at the same time. I wish all of my $29 (and $39 and $89 for that matter) rods felt this good.

    \nThe only downside I can come up with is that every one of the GM Guide Series spinning rods in the Greensboro store had very small reel seats - they could not host the Penn 440 SSG which has "fat feet" (was hoping to get away with one of these for inshore saltwater use). I use this one with a light freshwater reel and it has no problem.

    \nDefinite 2 thumbs up so far.\r\n

    Recommended: yes
    Cons: small reel seat
    Pros: Light, comfortable, durable (so far)
    I bought this rod in a 7 foot Medium Light model 2 years ago when I was looking for decent (but not high end) speck rod. It has held up great, still looks like it was new! I have it paired with a Quantum Inferno 30 reel spooled with 12 lb Suffix braid. It handles really well. Has enough give in the rod to compensate for the no stretch of braid to keep from ripping the lips of a speck. It\'s also very light, this rod, paired with the quantum inferno is my favorite set up. Not too flimsy, not too stiff, it\'s just about right for a medium light action rod. In my opinion, it\'s one of the best rods I\'ve purchased, I even like it a bit better than my all star and ugly stick rods. As stated before, the reel seat is smaller than normal, but that wasn\'t a problem with the size reel I was using.\r\n
