    Nothing but problems with the 9'3" H - Had three of them break all within 1" of the same spot - about 2/3rds the way up. 1 broke while working a granny (this was number 2 and on it's first trip out) and 2 others on fish.

    Watched a friends Okuma telescoping rod snap in half while trolling when it got a few small weeds on it. Weak! Okuma products are garbage. I've had one reel fail, seen another 1 or 2 fail plus that rod.

    I mostly use St Croix and have only had one problem when a ceramic guide slipped out and they fixed it for free in a timely manner. For foreign made rods, the Musky Innovations rod I have has been great for the last 3 or 4 years that I've had it.

    I pretty much have each model in the okuma evx telecopic series and have put a beating on them for two seasons now with no issues,also just picked up the new 9'3" xh split grip and have only fished it a few times but seems like a great rod.For the price and the warranty ive been very happy with these rods so far.
