Was at the South Arlington Academy and found a 7'3 ML ethos rod that scanned for $10.87. Went to check out immediately after I found it. Been looking for a budget drop shot set up to hold me over till I can get a drop shot specific rod.

Yeah I've seen posts on other forums or post on here where someomes found a casting or spinning ethos that scans for way less. So when I go to academy I usually try and scan a few rods. so this was the first time I got one to scan for a crazy low price.

Sorry guys it may take some time to come across one. I read about it in Ethos rod reviews on other forums awhile back. Then ever since when I'd make a trip to an Academy for some senkos and trick worms I'd randomly scan a rod or two. I think I lucked out on this one because the rod stood out to me because it was a 7'3 and longer than the rest of the spinning rods. So I was like hmm never seen a 7'3 at this store. I haven't come across one since then. But I still scan a few each time I go.

Well, Y'all got me motivated. I scanned every casting and spinning in killeen, about 70+ rods.... 3 of the last 5 spinning were $18.98... all 7'3" M/L. Not the super low price Y'all got but still saved $40/rod

I saw this on another forum and I have three academy's in driving distance. I scannned and scanned but nothing best, I found in all three stores was a $149 rod for $89 still to expensive for me to buy. I think it is employee driven, if you have stores run by young teenage kids they screw up. ALl three of the stores I visited had older middle aged men and women who pay attention to details more. also you can limit your searches to thursday afternoons that is when they do price changes. I got that answer from all three stores.

I stopped in my local academy tonight and they had the scanners off! Maybe they have been reading the forums.LOL They do have alot of clearance reels and rods might be worth a look. Falcon rods reg $119/$99 for $79.
