Does anyone have experience with Okuma rods

Big5 has a 9 ft med/light rod for $50. It looked good for surf fishing, but multiple reviews on Amazon had broken rods. Unfortunately this seems to be the case for several rods I have looked at, including Ugly Stiks. Any recommendations?

I, too, always check Amazon reviews on any product before purchasing and then weight the odds. I bought an Okuma Tundra combo (10' MH rod with size 6000(?) spinning real) for $50 in 20-17 and thus far only a line guide eye has popped off at some time unknown. I glued it back in place. The combo handles rockfishing duty with no major problems. YMMV.
