Ive been fishing the aquos series for a while now, and I'm really impressed with the quality and durability of these rods! These rods give you the ability to cast as far as you dare! Initially bought the 6wt for trout and have since found they handle bass and pike just as well! Dont let the awesome price fool you, these are high end rods!! Also Syndicates customer service is second to none, should you ever need it.
