Came in great condition and shipped fast! Old18 is the real deal, thank you guys again!!!
This company was recommended by a fellow fisherman so I went the web site and found it was veteran owned. Which is a big plus. I am not use to paying so much for a rod but after getting the rod and adding a reel to it and actually using it. IT IS NOW MY FAVORITE ROD WORTH EVERY PENNY. I WILL DEFINITELY BRAG ABOUT HOW AWSOME MY ROD IS!!! It also look good with the SLX reel I choose. This was not the plan but they look like they were made for each other. LOOKS GOOD AND CAST IS AWSOME.
Had a warranty claim. They took care of me immediately. Thank you.
Old 18 is a great company. Unfortunately, my rod was delivered broken. I emaild the company they sent me out a new rod. No questions asked. I have only used the rod once very light feels really good in the hand. Very happy to support a US company keep up the good work.
I now own 5 high end rods from Old 18. I am a convinced angler on these rods.
November 2021, I was finesse fishing the Shenandoah river in Virginia. I got a small bite, and gingerly set the hook. My rod bent double as I started fighting what I thought would be my pb large mouth. To my surprise , a giant Tiger Musky showed his self in the water. I have caught these fish before, but never the size I was fighting. We went around and around for about 20 minutes. I was worried using a light action rod and bfs reel with 1/8 lure, and 8 lb test line. HOWEVER,I was able to finally bring the beast onboard. The Musky was 41 inches long, and weighed a whopping 25 lbs. It got me a citation award in the state of Virginia.
For anyone debating on the strength and build quality of these rods, I can assure you they are legit.
Thank you Old 18 for such a great rod. Tight lines Eric
