Lets Talk Rods - Noticed the boards are kinda slow so figured I would put up a few posts. Have you guys seen the Shimano Scimitar fishing rods? I am amazed at the quality of these rods for their small price tag. I have: 1ea â€“ SMS-66M, 6â€™6â€, 6-14lb, Medium, Fast Action 2ea - SMS-66MH, 6â€™6â€, 8-17lb, Medium Heavy, Fast Action 2ea â€“ SMS-70MH, 7â€™0â€, 10-20lb, Medium Heavy, Fast Action I use these rods for throwing lures while flats fishing and have been very impressed with them and just canâ€™t get over the quality for price â€“ Talk about a BANG for the BUCK. Although these rods are considered Freshwater Rods I have not had a problem with them holding up to the saltwater. They are made with a graphite composite blank, aluminum oxide guides and cork handle. Comes with a hook keeper and 1 year limited warranty. Any of you guys have these rods in your arsenal???? Next I will try out the Shimano Teramar In-Shore Series Rod. Although it is a big jump in price so is the rod in performance but still if short on cash the Shimano Scimitar should not be overlooked.
