    Generally HI and Montague rods are considered low on the pecking order. But they DID make a few very fishable rods. One good indicator of their better rods is the number of guides used for the length. This one has 11 guides for an 8.5' length. HI wouldn't spend the extra $$$ on a crappy rod. So, thought I'd share this if anyone is interested. It seems like a good deal. I just bought a South Bend boo or I might have bagged this one.
