Overall, impressed with the rod. Nice action. Terribly unimpressed with the cork. "Out of the box" it's already cracked and in need of some repair. First time out casting, it started to fall apart. I like the action in the rod. I guess it would be fair to say, I like the rod but not the grip. Still a fair rod for the price.

With the first rod received, I had two issues. The cork grip was full of filler, and one of the rod guides was out of sync with the rest. I exchanged and got a much better rod. Guides aligned, better construction on the cork. I paired it with a Reddington Redfly2 Large Arbor reel and now have a good set-up for bass fishing. The rod is an accurate caster, and the sleeve ferrules fit together nicely at all three joints. I would give it 5 stars were it not for the initial rod I received from Sierra.
