I was gifted this rod by a friend. Decent action, nothing too special.

I loved my E21s rod also right up until it broke setting the hook on a fish that may have very well won me a new boat in a tournament. Now I can’t get any response from customer support. Won’t answer the phone or emails. Not much support for supposed to being the worlds most recognized rod.

This is a great rod that I picked up at Dicks. All these years later I still like the flex and action on it for light tackle snook fishing in the glades. The orange color is their thing but I prefer a black rod.

I have 2 of these the first is the Duckett model I have used this rod on spring Chinook up to 25 lbs it has performed flawlessly walking up to 8 oz of weight behind the boat from anchor The only thing I don't like is the cheap guides I will probably replace them with titanium The 2nd is the cheaper model just bought it used from a fellow fisherman haven't used it yet but it feels great Both rods have Shimano Tekota 300 lc reels with power pro line All the rest of my rods are high end G loomis from when Gary still owned the company and have never had one break I like the carrot stix better

Got the rod as a gift so of course NO receipt. Loved the rod but not worth the hassle of sending it back for replacement. Plus $40.00 for shipping and the company would never respond to emails or phone calls. Hope they go out of business!!!!!!!!!!

I'm AMAZED that this company is still in business. DO NOT purchase this rod or ANYTHING from E21 as they do NOT support or even answer there telephones or emails or ANYTHING for that matter. I see the complaints here and they are ALL TRUE.. AGAIN.. Who ever is running this company should be FIRED! WARNING!!!! DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!

I have 3 carrot stix and have had them for 2years... Caught tons of fish on them with no issue. Ive set the hook into 20-25lb striped bass with no problems at all. Not sure how everyone is breaking them as I abuse my rods and they have only a few scratches. If you know how to set a hook and cast then I strongly recommend these rods.

This rod is awesome I love it but some of you don't because you guys don't know how to cast or you just don't know how to reel in a fish this rod is sensitive ,good looking ,light ,accurate and can bend .ALOT

I'm not sure if everyone here is actually getting there top end models or not, in the beginning, Carrot Stix had some models around 100 and then some over 220. I've never fished their cheaper models but I have and STILL own 3 E21 Gold edition rods in different sizes for different fishing types and NEVER have I had ANY issues! I've literially caught hundreds of Reds, trout, snook, and cobia on these rods and can't imagine buying anything else anymore. I have owned St. Croix, G-Loomis, Redbone, Airwave, Shimano Trev etc... but the feel of these reels are second to none! I'm actually buying my father and sons the new "green" colored Carrot I found on sale for 120 bucks. This will be my first Carrot for under 200 so we'll see if I run into any of these CRAZY stories? PS: I used ONLY spinning reels/rods just in case anyone wanted to know? Again, NEVER any issues so I wouldn't even know about their warranty program lol never want to know either and don't think I will. They haven't failed me in YEARS of fishing so can't recommend these rods enough. GET ONE, you'll see...

Bought 2 and broke 2. One broke while fighting a 5lb small mouth for no reason the other broke while casting. Both broke right in front of an eye 3 or 4 eyes back. Money to send back plus packaging and warrenty cost, mite as well buy a new rod. This company won't last long.

was quite happy with my stick for the start of the season but when a small perch grabbed the unattended bait, it broke the rod just above the bottom eye--no place to turn to for adjustment or repair.back to walmart for $10.00 rod.

Rating: carrott sticks are junk
Reviewed on July 5, 2012 by Mike from Louisiana

Over the last two years I broke four of these rods,returned all 4. It cost me $160 total. The warranty suck,and no stores around the house will exchange these rods over the counter. I will NEVER buy another carrott stick. Can't get in touch with their warranty dept. I have a carrott stick in my shed now that my son broke Sunday while casting a spinnerbait. I am not able to get in touch with E21, so cutting my losses by not buying from this lousy rod making company anymore!!!
