Shakespeare Fishing Rod Intrepid IM-7 Graphite Fishing Rods
Fishing Rods Manufacturer: Shakespeare Fishing Rod
Shakespeare Fishing Rod Model: Intrepid IM-7 Graphite
Review Category: Fishing Rods
Purchase: Fishing Rods I laid down $29.99 for the rod and then another $65 for a nice Shimano reel to go with it. That was just as everything was going on sale about this time last year as Fall starts to set in.
Things I like about the Shakespeare Fishing Rod Intrepid IM-7 Graphite Fishing Rods: I bought the 5 foot 6 inch light action. I didn't want to go with the ultra-light for the fact that every now and then I like to do some Carp fishing on a stream and needed the little extra umppphhh. I like the twist lock reel system as I often change strategies in mid stream, pardon the pun and switch lines. The Shimano reel came with an extra spool which made doing this simple especially with the twist lock real system.
What I don't like about the Shakespeare Fishing Rod Intrepid IM-7 Graphite: The action of the rod may still be a little light for my taste. A question I will pose for all to read this is what's to say an ultra light in New York is an ultra light in Florida. NY has a lot of small streams with small fish whereas Florida has a lot of bassing lakes. Just something to think about.
Fishing Rods Intrepid IM-7 Graphite quality: It's okay I think the guides may come loose eventually, then again who knows.
Intrepid IM-7 Graphite summary: It's middle of the road all the way. Certainly not the best and it's not the worst either. Doing a review is tougher than I thought.
