Gander Mountain Guide Series Rods
GM's spinning rods are just way too stiff, and not very sensative for walleye jigging. They're action classes are all screwed up. Like I've said before, their ML, which last time I checked was the lightest action rod you could get, is more like a M or a MH. Its like your morning coffee saying "decaf" on the label, but after a drink or two...you realize you got a double espresso. Tough to gingerly lob a minnow and an 1/8 oz leadhead with a pool cue.
Again, in MY opinion, they're just not sensative enough. If you fished heavy leadheads and fireline or some sort of superbraid, you could jig walleyes and feel a bite. To me, their rods are geared towards a casting application for pike.
Maybe they've totally changed up their linup and I'm just babbling about old stuff. But I bought my last GM spinning rod in the summer of 06, and was still disappointed. Kept the ones I bought just to have spares or for when I take the little woman out crawler dunking for cats/bass/carp/sheeps, etc. Rods are perfect for bottom fishing for hard pulling fish like the above.
And, like I've also said, their musky rods are really nice, and are very, very hard to beat for the money.
For 30-$40, darn nice rod. More fancy than you need for trolling boards, really. They've been proven up to 40+ pound fish this year, can't argue with that. Also use them for walleyes.
As I said below, there's lots of folks making really nice spinning and casting rods, but GM is not one of them. If you want a musky rod...fine. But unless they've changed something in the last 18 months, GM rods are junk IMO.
