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.
