This short 6′ spinning rod was designed for fishing on a boat where a longer spinning rod is not needed and can get in the way. This light duty spinning rod is a great all purpose boat rod for 15-20# line. We like to put a Shimano 5000 reel on this rod with 15# line and target the Stripers and Fluke with it. These rods are extremely durable and will definitely last you a lifetime. After many years of doing boat shows in the Northeast, this is the rod that the customers told us they needed and we still sell them just as fast today.
