I picked up a Gloomis STR1562S 13' rod in Sept. and I'll tell ya, it sure makes a difference if you want to release that fish to be caught another day. Same goes for my 13' Frontier X. I can't imagine how many steelhead I've killed over the years because I was fishing with crap.
Getting back to that video, I'm 51 yrs old and have been fishing since I was 4 and have yet to do anything as silly as that kid. I think 1% of the time it's defective product and 99% of the time it's a mental defective that doe's the damage.
