I've only had this rod out once so far this year. I like it a lot. Light, fights fish very well and the length really helps casting distanace. Four stars because I've only used it once, the jury is still out on quality.
First I would like to say I am a Daiwa fan and I buy exclusively from them. I was excited about the rod's debut and found the awesome price hear at Overstock. I received my rods super fast ( 7'0 MH, 7'6 H) The rods are constructed really well for the price point and are very light. They fish great and load up on fish well. The only problem I have with this rod is the hook keeper. It is located on the side of the rod. Almost every cast, my line gets caught in it and I have to move it out of there. I haven't lost any fish or damaged line because of it. Honestly its just annoying. If they would have put the keeper on the front like Duckett Rods are, it would be a superior rod for the price point.
