Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Top of the line Abu I bought the 6'9" MHF rod and used it for plastic texas rigged baits! This rod is very sensitive and casts a 3/16 bullit and a baby brush hog way out there!! The rod is wicked looking paired up with the MGX reel!!!! When the fish would bite I had no problem determining the fish, limb, rock or weeds!!! Loved it!! get one you will love it too!!!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Broke after only a few uses I bought this rod from Dicks for my boyfriend as a birthday present in April. He loved the sensitivity of the 7'1 rod. However, while fishing this past weekend, he put a spinner bait on it and when he cast, the rod completely snapped in two!!! Needless to say I will be returning it this afternoon but we were both very disappointed that this happened. Not sure if it was a defect or what happened but I was definitely hoping for better quality considering the amount of money I spent on it. June 3, 2013
