Review 1 for Micro Graphite Spinning Rod, 4'6"

You don't need to spend any more on an ultralight

I bought this rod just about one year ago as a father's day present for myself. I fished it extensively in our home waters. It handled bass, bluegill, crappie, everything I threw at it. It tossed lures into the wind, horsed fish out of weeds (or wrapped in weeds). And it was sensitive, light and a joy to fish with. Good to see cork grips on this rod ... I feel this transmits vibrations from the end of the line better than those foam grips.
I speak about the rod in the past tense. That is because today, after landing a sizable largemouth on the rod, I bumped it and it fell out of my square back canoe into 8 feet of water. I was not upset. Because I knew the rod did not cost much money and I could go right back to Walmart and buy another just like it. Which I did. I also bought the 5'6" Micro Graphite as I am impressed with this product line and thought it would be good to have a longer rod for the purposes of line control. I look forward to seeing how it performs, and expect good things. Just spooled both rods up ...

I reeled in a 20" stripped bass against the current of the incoming tide into a stream mouth using the 5'6" version of this rod. I did have a an 8 lbs Berkely Fireline to keep the line from breaking.

Review 3 for Micro Graphite Spinning Rod, 4'6"

Best rod under $30 (and it's only about $15)

A friend sat on my older micro graphite, so I went out looking for a new rod. I couldn't find anything I liked as much under $30, so I went and bought 2 more of these.
I have gone through quite a few rods, and my favorite under a budget is still the Shakespeare Micro Graphite. I Have both the 5' and the 5'6" rods. They are almost as flexible as the more expensive Ugly Stick, and gives great feeling. I find the rod is easy to use crankbaits, spinners, and finesse baits without a problem.
I would highly recommend!
Walmart however needed to work on their packaging, my first rod arrived broken and I had to send the broken rod back and wait for the replacement.

Review 4 for Micro Graphite Spinning Rod, 4'6"

Greatest little rod-ever in shallow waters.

You can reel in the big ones with no problem, and feels great when used in shallow waters with one ounce sinkers.
