I've bought 5, for that price you can't go wrong.
They have served me well, no paint chipping or breaking.
I use them for fishing the heavy weeds and slop, they
hold up very well, I know they are a baitcaster, but I use a spinning
reel with 14lb fireline, I've hauled some very nice bass out of some very
thick brush too.
I did break one, but I had a 15lb snapping Turtle on my line.
Other then that, great rod for the price.
One crazy chick, that Loves to fish.
