I got these rods faster than expected and put then to use two days afterwards. I ordered the 6'10" MH (1) and the 7'2" M (2) actions. These rods are visually pleasing. The rods are some of the lightest and most balanced I've fished with in this price range. They both seem to be a fast tip rod with the M action rods having a slightly softer tip but not quite moderate fast. I have braid to flourocarbon on the MH and flourcarbon the M action rods. The jury is still out on the sensitivity. For $99 it's not bad, but there is a lot of competition out there at this price point and cheaper price points. No integrated baitkeeper is kind of a weird flaw especially considering one is pictured on the spinning option. Also, being that there is no specific technique listed, it would be nice to have the action specified when choosing a rod. All in all, for $99, this is a decent option. I would see definitely stick to the recommended lure wt listed for each rod when fishing. #rulethewater. Don't miss an opportunity to be part of the ardent team!Mr. Ray
