rod snaps easily

I had read many reviews stating that the tip of this rod snaps off easily but I just assumed that it was people being dumb with their rods. Well, I went fishing a couple days ago and got caught on a snag. Using minimal force without jerking, i tried to clear the snag. As I pulled up, the first 3 inches of the rod snapped clean off. I will never purchase another field and stream product ever again.

Perfect match for my 300 size Daiwa Lexa

I have a big musky rod/reel for throwing big, heavy baits but was having issues throwing lighter pike/musky baits like bucktails, spinnerbaits, and mid-sized spoons so I was looking for something just a bit lighter. I stumbled upon this rod while browsing at Dicks and it seemed like just what I was looking for, but I didn't initially buy it because I thought I could find something nicer than a '$60 Dick's Sporting Goods fishing rod'. Well, after a good deal of internet shopping and some trips to Cabelas & Gander Mountain I ended up coming back to this rod. It had the lure/line weight I needed for lures that are too big for my medium setup but too light for my extra heavy setup. Matched with my new Daiwa Lexa 300 HSL-P this has become my preferred pike setup. Great rod at a great price.
