Exactly what I was looking for, a compact casting rod for small areas, easy to carry, good feel and stiffness.

Medium Light Casting

First impression out of the box was to send it back. Wayyyy too light. No way this can handle larger fish. Glad I gave it a shot. Fantastic rod. Sooo much fun handling lakers.

ROD of the Gods

When you want the hook to stay set look no further.

Very nice rod

I really like this rod. It is a joy to fish lake trout. It makes controlling my lures very easy. It is by far the best rod I have seen for using a baitcaster which is my preference. It would be even better if the blank went all the way through the handle. I fish mostly outside and have not had trouble with icing on the guides. Haven't caught any really large fish yet but it handles 10 lbers easily. Have also used it for walleyes a few times. Probably should have purchased the medium instead.

Very satisfied

This rod was very effective in landing 15 to 25 lb lake trout through the ice. Perfect action. Appreciate the quality of construction fit and finish very nice. I appreciated the technical support in finding the right weight rod also.

New jig stick.

We need more cold weather so I can try it. Looks great.
I am also hoping to use it for squid this summer.
