All I can vouch for are their swimbait rods - an absolute steal for the price.

Good choice. I have two of them, and use them a lot.

I have 8 or 9 of their rods, mostly all crankbait and swimbait rods really like them. However I had 2 of the Helios jig rods and snapped 1 the first time I took it out. For the price they are a pretty good deal, we will see after a full year how well they stand up.

Out of all the rods our store carries,it's the most returned rod brand we get. Helios is the most common i see. That being said The Okuma rods we carry are sold as is and 20% off.

I bought a Helios jig rod to try last year, sold it after 3 trips. It was not very sensitive. I couldn't keep using it, I felt like I was missing bites.

I use one for my main crankbait rod (square bills and shallower baits) and like it fine. I've had it for a few years now and need to find a replacement, its just worn out.
