Size: 5-Feet 6-Inch Ultralight Verified Purchase
Biggest fault I find is the attachment method of the upper and lower 1/2's.
Bottom half fits into top, instead of upper fitting into bottom.
Rods I have had in the past with this set up I have found to be more easily broken, but for it's intended use for crappies and smaller bass I think it will serve well,
Purchased one more for my friend.
However, there is a cool Plusinno TM Spin Spinning Rod and Reel Combos Carbon Telescopic Fishing Rod with Reel Combo Sea Saltwater Freshwater Kit Fishing Rod Kit (2.1M 6.89Ft)that does if you need one:

Size: 6-Feet 6-Inch Medium Light Verified Purchase
I am pleasantly surprised at how good this rod is for the price-it is well-made, has a hook keeper and Tip+5 guides. Yeah, it's a $20 rod, but it's a lot of rod for $20. If you want to go cheap, this one will serve.

Very nice Rod. Very light I can use is all the day and don't feel any pain.
I also can throw the bait very precisely with it - exactly where I want and as far as I want. Super cool product for that price.

I have several more expensive rods, but wanted something I would not have to worry about if I go ocean fishing on the jetty. I expected a sensitive rod, which it was, but it surprised me by its strong backbone and very good build quality. I have 20lb spectra on it with a 25lb fluoro leader, and it handles 1oz swimbait and lures with ease. It looks very nice as well (not that it counts for how it pulls in fish, but it is always nice when something functional can also be aesthetically pleasing...) Only minor point against it would be that the cork may not be as good a quality as some of my other rods. Long story short- great reel for a wide spectrum of uses- sensitive but with good pulling power, and a bargain price. It's a no brainer if this rod is within the specs you are looking for, and I would not hesitate to buy more...

Size: 6-Feet 6-Inch Medium Heavy Verified Purchase
We used this medium heavy rod for both saltwater and freshwater fishing. The rod provides decent feedback for a reasonably priced rod and has good resiliency for piece of mind that it won't snap while fighting a fish. Also, I really like the deep red color.

This is a pretty good pole. I ordered the 6ft 6 inch medium heavy pole, and it turned out to be maroon, not the grey that's depicted. Still looks nice though. I'm getting super long casts with it, although that might be due to the weight of the lure and/or the reel. I will say that this rod came apart on me during one cast - I may have not had it together tight enough - I've had about 100 or so casts since then and haven't had it come apart again.
