Own several of these. Can't do much better for the price. Light and sensitive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ACP Balanced lightweight rod
The Abu Garcia Veritas is well designed and that is obvious in the rod performance. Most 7' casting rods feel heavy and forward weighted. The Veritas with reel mounted feels very balanced due to reduced rod weight. The rod is strong as well as light and provides smooth casting and retrieval.
I have only owned this rod a couple of weeks but I have already decided that it is definitely a keeper!
Congratulations to Abu Garcia for professional design and performance in a very reasonably priced product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eric in CT Best Rod for the Money, Period
I have no idea who these people are who broke this rod or what they were doing with the rod. I had a GLoomis 6'6" MH rod bust a few guides off and wanted a "cheap" replacement. So I bought a 6'6" MH Veritas. I got the loomis fixed, but it stays home now. I also sold off all the rest of my expensive rods and replaced them with Veritas rods as well. These rods are every bit as light and sensitive as the Loomis rods. The fast action rods are also very stiff, which is crucial to bottom fishing with heavy baits. The sensitivity is as good as it gets.
If you want a good spinnerbait rod with a softer action, try the 7' M Moderate Fast. I also use this rod for blade baits in winter and for rattle traps. Few if any fish get off as this rod will give plenty.
Crankbaits? Try the Winch series, plenty of flex for long casts and to relieve pressure when bass run so the trebles don't tear out.
In sum, if you want to go spend money to show everyone your high end gear, be my guest. If you want to catch fish with rods made with actions specific to the various baits in bass fishing, buy some Veritas's. I promise you wont regret it. And Dicks has been excellent about replacing any defects I have encountered, which happens with ALL RODS.

Needed additional rods for my guests while on my boat. Chose Veritas rods because of price point and availability to add as technique specific applications. Have the 7' H and 7'MH, and will add the longer versions over the next year or so. No problems thus far, I'd recommend them for their price point.

I found the rod to be very light to hold which comes in handy when casting all day. It also has a very sensitive tip.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bexm1tanker Extremely Disapointed
Bought this rod to replace my Carrot Stix that prematurely broke. So going into my second day with the Abu Garcia...only a few hundred cast with it...the rod snaps in half when a 1 pound bass latches on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MSMusser3 Great Deal!
For the amount of money this rod is as good as it gets. Can run right up there with a g. loomis rod.
