In the Fall of 2017, I bought myself a Moonshine Revival. I fiberglass rod and one that I do believe is made in Asia. But it was a good rod. WAS? Yes, I sold it with a about 5 other rods and several reels as to purchase some more rods and reels because that is what I do. And Moonshine Rod Co does make at least one model here in the US by hand but it's graphite. I know some local guys that fish Moonshine rods too.
- Good flex tip - kind of a mid-flex feel to the rod.
- Great components
- Looks great
- 2 tips
- Could possibly pass as a 5/6 rod
- I'm not as sure if this rod is as Slow as described.
Am I trashing this rod or the company that sells it? Nope. They are fine, hardworking folks that also make smoking pipes. If I did fish graphite, I would definitely own the Moonshine Drifter or Midnight.
Definitely not an entry level rod. Quality work with a great warranty. Definitely a mid-priced rod. Would I recommend this rod. Yes, if it fits your budget but you could save up a bit more for something better. Leave any questions in the Comments or email me.
