Great value/budget boat rod
February 18, 2020
Use the 7 ft for trolling with the FinNor SLD25. Amazing bang for the buck. Caught a everything you can imagine on the troll with them with zero issues (sailfish, dolphin, tuna, kings, wahoo etc). Just as good as Star rods. Would definitely recommend.

Was looking for a lighter / all purpose bottom rod. Got to use it for the first time yesterday, and it fit the bill. Great on feeling the bite for Triggers and vermillions. Maybe a little light for big grouper and snappers, but I did pull up a keeper cobia on my first drop. Aside from maybe getting something on clearance, it'll Pretty hard to find a better rod for $60. Lets hope it holds up, but I'm pretty happy with the purchase........ only regret is that I wish I got a 7' instead of the 6-6.

Great rod for boat fishing or pier fishing. Heavy-duty so you will have no problems bringing in that big fish.

Great rod. I paired it with a penn battle ii 5000 reel. Perfect for pitching out mullets for Jacks, snooks, and tarpons at the jetty.
ProsGreat price and good quality rod that will handle just about anything

Purchased a couple of these for friends and family that could not use my casting gear without tears rolling down my eyes. Capable of putting a hurt on targeted species at a great price point.

I bought several of these rods to use as "loaners" for a college fishing club. These rods are a bit heavier than I would typically use, but to hand to students with little saltwater fishing experience, they're perfect. These rods can handle just about any fish that one might encounter under normal circumstances. The quality and appearance of these rods is very nice.

I bought these rods for a Destin fishing trip in the Gulf of Mexico. first time out you hooked up into a large 150-pound nurse shark. Rod handled the shark with ease. Highly recommend for bottom fishing and trolling
ProsVery strong

As good as any rod 6 times the price.

If you can sacrifice a little on the glitz of a rod wrap, this is the rod for you!! It performs well on hooked fish and is rugged, yet light. It is a perfect match to the Penn Fathom reels.
ProsRugged, Light, well constructed.
ConsNot as glitzy of some of the competitors wraps. Who cares!!

Exactly the right rod
February 18, 2015
I'm more than pleased with the Rampage rod, it's of very sturdy construction and offers ample backbone for digging grouper and enough movement to move snapper around without feeling like a broomstick. I was debating between this and the Carnage, decided to save a little cash for bait and beer. I'm glad I did, again I'm very satisfied with this model (7'6")

Another great order through Tackle Direct. Delivered within 4 days of order and very well packaged. I haven't used the rod yet, but it is a perfect match for one of my stripper trolling Penn reels and I look forward to using it during the spring run up the Chesapeake Bay.

Love these rods, use the models with the roller guides on my trolling reels. The rods are very strong and great for trolling. Also use these rods for bottom fishing with my spinning reels and for live lining. Again, they are strong rods but still sensitive to detect bits when bottom fishing.

great rod for the money

I was looking for a solid glass rod that was not too expensive. This rod did fit the bill perfectly. It's not too heavy for a glass rod and it has pretty good balance with a TLD 25 mounted to it. I have two of them and I would buy another. The reel seat doesn't feel and look to be of the best quality but it keeps the reel tight. I am using reel seat clamps. So, I do not see the rod's reel seat being an issue anyway.
