I'm considering purchasing a Castaway rod. I have heard stories good and bad about them. Does anyone care to chime in?

I have one that is a perfect companion to a Diawa Fuego. I liked it so much I tried to buy another one just like it. Wasn’t able to, though I forget exactly why not. This reminds me to try again.

It’s possible that the more serious bass fishermen would want a more expensive rod (and reel).

I have a couple of them. Good rods for the money IMO. I’m not one who buys the more top end rods though. 130.00 is about my max for a rod. Try to keep my combos under 250.00. And I use them for years!

I have one I use as my crankbait rod, it is a medium. I don't know the model but I am very happy with it.


Lets go fishing

I just bought 4 new rods...2 ALX and 2 Dobyns. I have a Castaway I may let go pretty reasonably or take something in trade.

Have you fished with ALX & Dobyns before or is this your first time purchase of these rods?

First time. Just got a great deal on them. I am fishing them for the first time tomorrow but I can tell already the ALX Enox feels awesome! If it's as sensitive as it feels like it's gonna be I may ditch my Loomis rods and go all ALX!
