6th Sense Lux Rods... anybody have experience?

Recommended Posts

I have been looking at getting a do it all rod that is less than $200, this rod would be a 7'2"-7'5" MH Mod Fast or Fast action rod. I've looked at the Shimano Curado rods, Dobyns Sierra, and Daiwa Tatula elite. The 6th Sense Lux rods just came out and I am very interested in those. I really love 6th Sense baits and when I heard these rods were coming I wasn't too sure about them because 6th Sense has been a bait company so far. Has anybody had any experience with the Lux series? I personally think the all black looks a little boring, but I'm still interested in them. Thanks to anyone who gives their thought on these rods.

I have 4, absolutely love them super lite and super sensitive. I’m switching all my rods to 6th sense.

Sorry I haven't been active pretty much since I posted this. Thanks for the info, do you use any for jigs and t rigs?

I just picked up a 7'2" MHMF Lux a few weeks ago for cranking. I've only had it on the water twice (it's been hot down here) and both times we were fishing cranks on a rocky ledge, just on the edge of the channel...15' to 20' deep. Despite its light weight, the Lux performed incredibly with the (medium) deeper running, heavier cranks. I have a reel made by that unnamed brand (it is grey in color and has a 6.6:1 ratio) matched up with it right now, and while it's not a bad setup, I really want to try something slower (think: Curado 200iPG or something similar).

 

One of the main reasons that I picked this up is how it feels in my hands. I've got relatively small hands and the grips feel near perfect especially with a smaller reel (maybe that 200iPG isn't for me, afterall).  Overall, the rod feels really solid (again for its light weight), and had no issues pulling 3- to 4-pounders out of those depths. I feel like it is plenty sensitive for my purposes and will likely try some of their other flavors. All that said, I have not thrown a jig or t-rig on it, and likely won't with this particular rod...
