I picked one up over the winter - the heavier rated rod. I like it alot - though the reel seat is a cheap POS.
I've fished it with bombers and some smaller plugs and lures. I took my first keeper of the season and have since caught bass to 34" on it. I like the way it tosses bombers and tins - I can load the rod up easily and the bomber flies when I hit it just right. It tosses smaller Kastmasters and Yo-zuri Mag minnows very well indeed.
Fighting fish is also a ball on it and it has pretty decent backbone. Though I wouldn't want to be trying to horse big bass away from boulders with it it seems very well suited for smaller lures and baits and beach fishing where good distance casting is required. I've seen guys using them to fish blood worms with light sinkers on the bottom as well but I ave not done so.
All in all it's light as a feather and is a real blast to fish with as far as I'm concerned....it's inexpensive as well.
