TW has a nice sale on it $200 rod for 130. But I can't find many reviews on it, never heard of Ark. Is it shady or worth the plunge?

I don't have a Sniper, but I do have an Ark Tharp series cranking rod called the "grinder". Its a glass composite rod, its a really nice rod and casts baits a mile. I personally feel it lacks a little sensitivity compared to a graphite cranking rod but thats to be expected. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another Ark rod at all.

I bought the 6'10 med and 7'6 heavy during the Xmas sale.  They were on sale for $99 back then.  They are solid rods and balance pretty well.  I been using the 6'10" a lot for jerk baits, light and responsive.  Have not used the 7'6" yet.

Your memory is better than mine.  :D  I bought the 6'10" Medium on sale at the $130 price.  Never saw the $99 sale price.  :cry:  Unfortunately it hasn't had a reel on it so I can't give any feedback yet.  I've been working two jobs....again....for about a year.  Fishing has taken a back seat.  Sucks locally anyway which is why I quit for 23 years after moving to this area.  Hopefully I will get out to use it...and a few others that haven't been used yet...soon.

Yes it was on sale for 99 before 129, I was gonna pull the trigger so many d**n time in the model you bought, to use mainly Fluke and weightless worm. Send it to me, I’ll fish for you and give you the feedback 😝

I own 2 one is the 610MLXS spinning rod which I have fished for a couple of years. Really like the rod a lot. Great finesse rod. The other is a 70MHXC which I have only cast a couple of times. It is by far the fastest rod I have ever owned. Both are lightweight and seem to be well built. Great deal at the $130 price point. Found them on TW and then emailed the company a couple of questions and they got right back to me.

By fastest do you mean the taper? Is that a good thing or does it make it hard to cast?

I bought the 7'Medxf at Christmas and it is a good little rod very versatile but I use mine for light Texas rig and weightless rig. It is a little stiff with the xf but it has good sensitivity in fact I had to get use to it because I was pulling the trigger to quick.

Yes. The top is the only part that really flexes. It casts baits within its range very well but I wouldn't try anything too light with the casting rod. I think it is personal preference. I like the rod and will probably fish everything but crankbaits with it
