10+ hours round trip to buy some fishing rods is not gonna happen for me. I know they have a bargain bin, but not necessarily the specific rod models I would be looking for. Very limited time on my part working 6 days a week and only 10 paid vacation days. I have driven past it 2 times in my life when I was on my way up to Ashland for a mini family vacation. Was not in the market for any rods either time. I have a bunch of Croix's. Just started targeting fish in a different way recently which means adding to the quiver.
BTW is there anyone else who just doesn't like the split grip rods. Call me old, but I much prefer the full grip corks. This also limits the rods I would be looking at. I have one split grip Legend Tournament rod I use for drop shotting walleye and bass. My older Legends have full grip cork which I love. Broke one and the replacement has a split grip. Dangit! Just not a fan.
