Rated 1 out of 5 by from Low Quality - Terrible service I purchased a 9' Extra Heavy action IM8 casting rod for $90 and after 2 uses, the reel mount broke free from the rod body. The reel now rotates freely around the rod body. I reported this back to Berkley and they in turn offered to sell me a different rod for and additional $60. What a joke. I thought I was buying a premium product from a reputable company. I guess I was wrong. Buyer beware. If you buy one and it falls apart, they don't care

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good rod but a little stiff in the tip I bought the 9' XH (3/4 - 3 oz, 20-65 lb line) rod a couple of years ago. I have used it for casting 1-2 oz crankbaits, spoons and jigs for pike, static bottom fishing in a river with bait (w/ 2-3 oz lead) for Walleye and Lake Sturgeon, and trolling with a dipsy diver for Silver (Coho) Salmon in Alaska. It has worked well for all these applications. Depending on the use, I pair it with an Abu Garcia 6500 C3 (w/ 50 lb braid) or an Abu Garcia 6600 C5 MagX w/ 17 lb Trilene XL. For a 9' rod it feels light and nicely balances with these reels (reel weight approx. 10.5-11.5 oz plus line). The guides on my rod show no sign of wear. The rod has lots of backbone and has easily handled everything I've caught with it. My only complaint about the rod is that the action seems to be overly stiff in the tip. A slightly softer tip would help add more distance to casting and it would help with bite detection when static bottom fishing with bait.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightwieght, Durable, Soft Slow Tip Hands down best bottom bouncing rod made. The 8'6" and 9'6" medium action have the perfect tip. Fish will buckle the rod over in a rod holder and hook themselves without even knowing it. Been guiding and tournament fishing with them the last 2 years and have yet to break one. Great Rod!
