carnage 2 11ft 2-6
January 22, 2022
this rod is one of my favorite, i could use it for jigging and top water with no problems. one night i cought it on my back cast with another rod and sent it 30ft in the air. i ended up breaking the reel and not the rod! fished the rod for the rest of the season. lol the reel that broke coming out of the sky was a quantum cabo, i really liekd the cabo, i ended up putting my 6500 slammer on it. it was still balanced well.
Prosstrong rod, casts all of 6oz well.

My only regret is that I didn't buy this fishing rod before. I love its design, its weight and its strength to dominate any trophy fish. It is the best investment I could have made.

This review is for the the Carnage II 10ft 1-5. It’s an excellent rod that does very well within its range. This is my 3rd Carnage II. The finish on this rod is superb and it’s strength and sensitivity is on par with rods double the price. This particular rod is great for plugs or a light weight and chunk.

January 27, 2019
Great price with Tackle Direct's 20% off discount coupon. Rod appears to be well made with good Fuji components. Light weight. Can't comment on casting as its winter time and I've not had a chance to use it.
ConsHandle length is 4" longer than my personal preference

I bought 2 of these 10' casting rods & paired them with Avet SX MC reels. This is a great setup. The tip is sensitive for good bite indication. I don't normally need to cast too far, but once I had got the reel set right I can get a 3oz lead over the 100yd mark with relative ease.

Amazing Surf Rod
August 8, 2017
I bought the 9ft 15-30lb line class. I can cast a mile with this rod. I haven't caught anything with it yet. I was hoping to use it for catching reds and drum in the surf but I have come up empty so far. The rod is amazing quality and 10x better than the prevail. They are powerful, im sure i could catch a 5ft shark on it as well with ease.
ProsLIght Weight Quality Craftsmanship
ConsWhen you break it down into 2 pieces, I cant put the top piece in my beach cart, the guide stops it from going through the hole.

Great rod
September 18, 2016
Just received this rod from Tackle Direct. usually when you buy rods, they are packed loosely in an oversized box. but these cams very well packed in a hard cardboard tube/bubble wrap. the rod itself has fantastic quality. Build quality is awesome. very comfortable EVA grips and most of all, very light weight compared too my Okuma Longitude. When I was looking to upgrade my rod, I was looking for something that had a decent price,good quality materials used (K-guides included which is a plus),good sensitivity and light weight. the Carnage 2 satisfies all these requirements. would recommend this rod to anyone.
Proslight weight. exceptional build quality. K frame guides. sensitive & nice ergonomic grips.
Conswould be nice if the cost was under $200
