Moonshine is making some of the best rods out there today. They are a tremendous value at their price point. I own 2 Drifter series rods and love them both! The action is slow, so if you’re looking for a “fast action” rod, this won’t be for you. However, if you’re looking for a rod that you can depend on for throwing your line accurately and a rod that gives you a great sense of response and what’s happening on the other end - this is your rod.
