Um. I would rate them a 43.

So thats on a scale of 1 to 1 million? lol... I've felt the convergence rods and they feel nice, but I've never gotten to use one on the water.

They are not bad... I think if you can afford the Clarus, you are getting quite a bit better rod for the extra money..

My first rod I've ever bought with my own money was a shimano convergence spin rod. Great rod, a bit heavier then the other models. For the price, quality, and warranty... it was perfect! I've upgraded beyond the convergence but I still have and fish that first rod. It has been I think 6 years since I bought it. I've used it for heavy catfishing, carps, bass, northerns... you name it. Has not broken on me. It's pretty beat up... but it still works great! The Clarus would be a bit better buy IMO. Put both of them in your hands and right away you can feel the difference. The convergence line is a nice one..... but if you can bump it up.. go for the Clarus. You can't go wrong with either!
