From Us:

The Bad Ass Glass Quickshot will change your mind about how fiberglass rods cast and fish. The action is medium to medium-fast and as long as you mellow out your casting stroke a bit, this rod will deliver the mail. It casts nicely at close range and if you want to pop a long cast it will do that, too. A tremendous amount of fun for under $300!

From Echo:

A Glimpse at the Future of Fiberglass

The B.A.G. is a rod designed for big game fisheries where you need to huck big rigs to big fish and do it quickly.  Something previously thought of as well outside the world of fiberglass rods!

Faster, Lighter, More Powerful

“Slow” and “fiberglass” are no longer one-in-the-same.  The B.A.G. Quickshot is ready to fish all day and keep it snappy.  Zip streamers on quick short shots or lay on the throttle to go the distance.
