I purchased the 6, 8, and 9' foot spinning rods, and WOW! I took my cousin fishing in the east fork trinity branch north on Hubbard and we caught about a 100 small bass that were gorging on shad in the creek. My cousin isn't too particular about his tackle, and I insisted that he use mine. He said the new G-Rods were the nicest he'd ever held and he was amazed at the sensitivity. He kept yanking fish clean out of the water because he thought the small bass were bigger than they were. Go get one of these rods- there is none better. Go get one and tell me I'm wrong- and then see if you don't buy more!
