      Comments about Gander Mountain™ Advantage Series IM6 5'6" Ultralight Rod:

      This little rod looks great. A lot better than BPS's. I mounted an Okuma Trio 20 on it and it balanced almost perfect. Going to use for everyday fishing, bream, crappie and would not be afraid to tackle a bass with this set-up. Running 6lb mono on it. Happy fishing and highly recommend. Steve

          Best Uses

            Comments about Gander Mountain™ Advantage Series IM6 5'6" Ultralight Rod:

            Having four of the Advantage 5' ultralight rods witch are great I picked up four of the 5'6" ultralight rods. The 5'6" looks to be a older model of Advantage, close in looks. The 5' have great action but the 5'6" is is a stiffer light action rod, much thicker and a lot heavier rod. If you want a ultralight rod go with the 5' Advantage rod. The rods are well built and look great but are not realy ultralight rods, more light action.
