Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Style , light weight Have not been able to use due to winter conditions. February 19, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by crucial mh 7 2 jig and worm i have this paired with an okuma helios and it is pretty well balanced.shipping was on time,and an exchange at the store for another rod previously bought online went smoothly.i have yet to take it on the water but it is fairly light and appears to be high quality. hopefully this will be 1 of my go to setups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Catches Fish I have a 7'2" medium casting rod. Best rod for working plastics I have ever used. I can pitch low and slow with this rod better than any rod I have owned. Making it easier to get under tree limbs and docks softly. I can feel the tick of fish eating the bait with confidence. The hook set is strong and sure, with enough flex in the rod to land the big ones. It is just a great rod. November 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth it's price I purchased the jig/worm rod as a back up for my G Loomis GL2 and so far it's become my favorite rod. Very light and the IM10 graphite is extremely sensitive. The reel seat is a major plus and the guides are of better quality( even better than the ones on my Loomis rod). The EVA grip and rod butt seems ok, no difference than standard cork but alteast they won't get dirty. The price tag is a little steep but you get what you pay for. A light strong rod and the Shimano warranty can't be beat. September 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shimano Crucial rod series I have five of these rods in various actions and they compare with almost any rod on the market. This may well be the best value in medium priced rods. The 2012 and 2013 rods are IM10 blanks, previously IM9 blanks were used. They also have excellent guides. The difference between the Crucial and the Cumara rod in 2012 and 2013 was the guides - alconite on one and SIC on the other. And the Crucial crankin' rod is second to none. May 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Crucial 7'2" Med Hvy Very nice rod. I have a couple of the Crucials now, and I am impressed with both. I bought the 7'2" worm/jig rod, and I use it mostly for fishing w football jigs. It has the perfect taper, and length for this. Extremely sensitive, I would rank it up there with my Falcon Cara T7's, however this rod has more backbone than most med-hvy's I own. Pretty light rod, (not the lightest), but has plenty of power for those hooksets on longer casts. Nice rod, I highly reccomend it. May 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome rod This rod had no problem horsing in my first 10 plus pound bass 2 days after purchasing it. Handles excellent, and well balanced. March 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light and sensitive I use this 68mxf rod for plastic baits texas rigged on a 1/8 th oz weight. Very sensitive and it is light enough that I can throw it all day. Also this is a good looking rod!!! July 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome rod! Casting rattle traps on LSC or pitching spinnerbaits. This rod feels awesome !! June 4, 2012
