Independent Rod Company Makes Rods Worth More Than They Cost

I came across these a while back and picked one up. I wanted a well made versatile rod that would cast well and provide good feedback of strikes and fish action. I chose a 7'6" medium weight model to help a little with the long cast and handle the Reds and Sea Trout I would be fishing for.

The rod uses quality braid ready guides and a carbon blank. The wrapping and fittings are excellent, tidy and good looking. The rod has real cork grips that are dense and durable.

Castability
Now for the real question, It casts long, straight and with minimal effort. I rate it a 5 out of 5.

Hooking and Fighting Ability
I can feel the bite easily and it has the backbone to set a hook easily. It is proportioned well and fights a hooked fish well. The rod does not overpower a fish as much as plays the fish for a satisfying fight. I rate it a 5 out of 5.

Durability
The rod has seen a lot of action and is not showing any unusual wear. It holds up well with normal maintenance of washing and cleaning. Again a 5 out of 5.

Comfort
The rod feels light in the hand and I can fish it all day. The cork grips are comfortable and big enough to grip easily but not overly large. Another 5 out of 5.

This rod meets and exceeds my expectations especially for the price I paid.
