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!

Been using Castaway rods since mid 90’s, bought my first rod from Axtons ironically met Mr Honey Hole himself Jerry Dean the same day! Castaway is still one on the better rod companies out there, like Allstar: they’re tried and true!
