Im just started fishing and i got 2 rods nothing special and here they are tell me what you think, they are both 8ft rods, i am probably going to get a 10ft rod soon, just looking for a good rod for a good price. Tell me what you think about my equipment, I would say its not good.
Rod: Shimano 8ft TDR-80M2B

I use this rod for carp, catfish, bass and pike fishing, It's probably not made for all those fish but for me it works like a charm and never really had a problem.
my other rod here i use for salmon fishing and on a few occasions for carp, I have caught a couple 14-22 lb salmon with this rod i think, the rod is not amazing, the brand is not popular, it was cheap but its good for me.
Rod: Mako Calypso

I have never fished the rods you linked, but I know that when I heard 8' rod for bass, I thought to myself, "too long". However, the truth of the matter is, it would be too long for any technique I would use it for.
So, in the end, if it works for you, then I think the rod is great for you.
