Clarus 7' Medium is a Fast Action Rod
Reviewed by yakfish757 from Virginia Beach on Monday, January 15, 2018
These are the details I think most folks need. Model No. CSS-70MC, 3/16 to 5/8 oz. 6-12 lb line.

Great rod at a great price. My rod arrived in a tube so I think they figured out the shipping issues.

    Ordered two 7 ft rods, both arrived with broken tips. Return fee was charged which I find unacceptable.

    Medium quality rod, medium quality fittings and reel seat. Well finished and assembled. Price is right.

    Nice , light, strong , responsive rod at a price of Walmart stuff. Guides are good, handle and windings good. Rod casts a mile with a good reel. I'm a rodmaker and my best stuff is better than this but not for $40.00. Anyone who rates this low doesn't know.
  • Good price, decent rod
    Reviewed by Jandlson from Wisconsin on Friday, August 3, 2018
    Purchased the 7' MH version. Rod arrived intact and in good shape. Construction seems decent. Main complaints are that it feels somewhat heavy in general and tip-heavy in particular. Kind of massive lower section of the blank, which obviously provides strength but seems oddly large for a freshwater spinning rod purchased in 2018. Still, for $50, I'm satisfied with the purchase.

  • “How long is the handle”
    Asked by Sam from Suwannee, Florida on 11/3/2017 6:04:31 PM
  • “Power Rating is not the same as Action. The “action” of a rod is determined by where a rod flexes along the blank.The “power” of a rod refers to how much pressure it takes to flex the rod. Every Clarus has a Action Rating AND a Power Rating. My question is what is the power rating of the 6'6" rod with Xfast Action (it should be written on the blank of the rod near the base)?”
    Asked by Rudy from AZ on 10/30/2017 12:04:15 PM
    • I have only owned and used the 7' rod and do not have that info on the 6'6..Which i could be of more help. The length of the rod would slightly change and dictate the power rating.

    • Fly Guy, Thank you for trying to help, I thought someone from Sierra Trading Post with access to the inventory could take a quick look and give me the answer. Without having the actual rod in hand this would be very difficult to answer. I will try calling them. Thanks again for your help.

  • “What is the Power Rating (Medium Light, Medium, or Medium Heavy) on the 6.6" Clarus Spinning rod with the XFast Action? Thanks”
    Asked by Rudy from AZ on 10/27/2017 11:49:03 AM
    • The Power Rating can be looked at in two ways! Most gauge this by the weight of a the lure. Softer rods flex or bend more. They are more likely to cast a lighter lure further. The heavier the rod the stiffer. These would cast heavier lures. The saem would apply for the weight of the intended or targeted fish.

    • I think he was asking what is the actual power rating on the XFast Action rod...I also want to know, because there is a big difference between an ultralight and a heavy.
