Makes you think twice about their customer support when you can't even get them to read the email from a potential buyer.

That's hilarious considering Pen3 buys Megabass rods. I guess it only makes you think twice if it's a brand you aren't in love with. :lol:

I'm looking forward to hearing some reviews on these. I'd be interested in getting one in the future. Unfortunately it's not in the budget right now, since I'm moving across country in a couple weeks.

Big negative
Hope that's not the norm :?

Last time i had to deal with a broken tip, it was done swiftly with no questions why it broke and didnt have to pay anything but one way shipping. No problems with MB usa so far for me. I have also ordered three times with mb japans outlet store through email and there was no hiccups.

x2. I have dealt with MB USA staff multiple times, and they always went out of their way to help me.

I was just giving you a hard time. I've actually heard both Megabass and 13 fishing take care of issues quickly. I think with either finding out information at times might be an issue. I like both brands rods.



I guess it's just me, but I like the cork that's not perfect. It adds a little character to the rod.

Maybe there will be more reviews soon...TW hadn't sold a single one and now the sale is on. They're already out of the 7'2".

I have the 7'2. Been able to use it a few times. It is a great MH action rod. Very sensitive and loads really easy. Versatile so you can fish just about anything with it . Rear handle length is short enough you can cast a variety of ways. The new PTS Fuji reel seat is the most comfortable I have ever used. The build quality is top notch. Looks great with my IP68 or the Metanium. Stamped made in Japan. Based on above, I believe it rivals other JDM products in the same price range.

Warranties go... 13 and MB are top notch. Have dealt with both and my father in law has had good dealings with 13
