Default $5 fishing rods

Sportsmans warehouse in Midvale has 6'6 medium action rods for $5 a piece. Not the best rods but great for gifts or children. I bought a couple for cat fishing and I don't have to put the abuse on my good rods. Don't know how long they'll last but they probably had 50 of them when i was there 2 days ago

What kind are they? I heard that you could buy Okumas at the Hunting Expo for $5...wonder if they are leftovers or something.

They are a Southbend Eclipse. Never heard of them nor used them but I grabbed 2 tonight for backups. They are a 2-piece rod and seem to be alright for $5. They are at the front registers and there were about 20 left at 6 PM tonight.

Southbend used to be carried by Walmart. For years I had a 6'6" Southbend spinning rod. I bet all heck out of that thing and it just performed great. It was my rod I could use as a walking stick packing into a backcountry lake and still catch a fish with it. Durable as heck and well worth the Lincoln you'll drop on it.

I bought a southbend rod a few years ago for 5 bucks at sportsmans. No complaints... still works fine. I even throw it in the downrigger on occasion. Not my favorite feeling rod, or my go to by any means... but for 5 bucks, it beats giving a kid a barbie pole.

Barbie poles rock! Except whey the catch something over 20 inches then they are crap. The seem to attract the big fish though. I thought about using one as an ice rod this year. When I was at sportsmans they had some up by the register they were Okuma's.
