Love(d) this rod.

I'm relatively new to really getting in to bass fishing. I don't have much of a budget for fishing gear, but picked this up to throw treble hook baits on. I really enjoyed this rod, but last week I decided to put some fresh line on my reel. Went to tie a bait on and the tip just flopped over. I guess the rod got damaged in the back of my pick up on the way home from the lake. I just about cried. I learned a good lesson though. I need to be more careful with my rods. This was my 1st experience with a more moderate tip. I look forward to trying some other JB3 rods once I get a little cash together. I live in Arkansas and love the idea that these are made next door in Texas.
