JWall14 Posted September 10, 2021 Share Posted September 10, 2021 After fishing this rod for a full season worth of smallmouth wading I can confidently review this rod. First off, for $475, this is a MEGA-STEAL. This rod is on par with lightness and sensitivity as the NRX line. I paired it with a 2500 Daiwa Certate which balances very well (awesome reel!!). Spooled with SX1 12lb high vis braid to a 7lb Sniper leader. I had trouble figuring out what this rod was truly "made for". I have narrowed it down to this: tubes, flukes, senkos, shakey heads (in this order). This rod is INSANELY sensitive. I HAVE NOT MISSED A SINGLE BITE. I literally feel everything going on. There is no mistaking bites from anything else. Every one is clearly felt. The power behind this rod is unbelievable. I can really put the pressure on fish with this rod. Big river smallmouth have no chance. Tubes are a straight joy to fish on this rod. If you are looking for an ultimate tube rod look no further. Flukes are awesome on this rod and this has the right amount of power to pull fish out of cover. I highly recommend this rod and if anyone has any questions please ask! Thanks for reading! 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
