I love that rod. Always have one as a spare to my spare and tend to give them to friends i introduce. I still find them for $20 brand new. 6'6 that i load with a 4-5wt. Fun, little rod. It's the rod my 17 year old daughter loves. Nicknamed it the Bumblebee...
Now, are expensive rods worth it
It all depends......
