Local Walmart clearanced down to $5. Originally $30. Not sure why they are, told me they had way too much over stock.
Picked up 6 of them.

I've built a few fluke, flounder, and snapper rods using their blanks. All the action is in the tip, they make fishing for smaller fish a bit more fun.

The only fishing rod I use for small creeks & streams. I use the 4ft. rods paired with Shimano reels.

Nothing wrong with them. 5 bucks is a stellar deal.


If you want the job done right......do it yourself.

Exactly … I moved on to nicer rods before nicer reels since switching to super line and the whole “feel” thing is nice on our flounder that are famous for several “thumps” before you should set the hook …

If they are two piece and no strategic advantage … I’d glue them. You see a fish a ways off ... adrenaline kicks it … strong cast and the thing separates … (curse here) …
