How are 13 casting rods?

Looking at up grading how are these? I have Abu Garcia rods now. I'm not impressed with St Croix to me they are very heavy. I'm looking in the 100-125 range.
I also like a easy warranty plan. Is 13 a good brand. Thanks

I don't know about the 13s, but I agree with you about the St. Croixs. I know lots of guys love them, but every one I've used has felt clunky.

Al lot of Bass guys like the Omens for the money. I don't have one myself. They feel nice at the stores.

I have an Omen and love it. If you hurry and buy an omen you get a free Creed k spinning reel also expires May 31st good deal get a free $50 reel to go with the rod. I actually bought 2 Omens!

Try the link below otherwise just google 13 fishing rebate and you should be able to find a forum. Depending on what you buy they have anything from shirts to 13 tumblers to reels. But you do have to buy it before the 31st. Also note Amazon and Ebay purchases won't count.

Look at the St. Croix Mojo Bass Rods. I've got two and love them.
they're really lite at about 5 oz.

13 rod also weighs in at 5 ounces and is super balanced.

If you do go with the Omen I would love to see a follow up with your review of it compared to your Abu rods. I fish several Abu Veritas rods and always wonder if I am missing out not trying other brands.

I had an 7'3" heavy Omen that I absolutely loved for the month or so I had it- it was my go-to frog rod and the action was very nice. Then it snapped, almost right in half, on a cast. It was a clean break, maybe I knocked it with a weight or something at some point and nicked the graphite or maybe it happened in the store or in shipping. Either way, it left me with a bad taste. Action was excellent, the durability was not.
