I've been an avid ultra light fisherman for more than twenty years and have never come across a better value for my money than the quantum Xtralite series fishing rods. The Xtralite series of fishing rods are actually my favorite type of ultra light fishing rod, and they cost about half as much as comparable rods. Give this series of fishing rod a try and you wont be disappointed.

This series of fishing rod comes in five different lengths, so you'll be ready no matter what the situation. I personally use the five foot model for most of my ultra light stream fishing, but when the water flow becomes heavy, I use the six foot six inch model for better feel. The sizes range from 4' 6" to 6' 6", so they have you covered no matter what the situation. These rods are constructed with natural cork handles, which in my opinion is the best choice for the handle of your fishing rod.

When using an Xtralite fishing rod to bounce bait off of the bottom of a moving stream, the feel that you have is incredible. These rods enable the angler to feel every bounce on the bottom, and then when the bite happens, these rods enable you to feel the difference. Then they provide enough back bone for a nice solid hook set.

I've personally landed both Rainbow Trout and Smallmouth Bass in the six pound range with these fishing rods, so their strength should not be questioned. During the battle with these fish there was some screaming and yelling, as well as profuse worrying, but none of those things were do to not having confidence in the rod. All of the screaming and worrying was in reference to the angler (me) and not the rod. This series of fishing rod is very well constructed and can stand up to most anything the fish have to offer.

The value that this series of fishing rod offers is unmatched as well. I have a propensity for slamming the tips of my fishing rods in vehicle doors, thus rendering them useless. But with the value that the Xtralite series offers me it's no big deal. For around twenty bucks, I can simply replace my rod when I have an unfortunate mishap. For me, this is a wonderful thing.

The bottom line is that Quantum Xtralite fishing rods offer the angler the best value for the money. As a matter of fact, these rods are all I use for my ultra light fishing. I prefer the Xtralite rods over their more expensive counterparts all day long. Check them out and you won't be disappointed.
