    I use this rod for almost everything, skipping jigs, swimming jigs, topwaters, anything with a blade on it, t-rigs, senkos/flukes, traps just to name a few. I got four and they're usually all on my deck, getting ready to order more! (Posted on 9/1/16)

    I bought this rod for my wife and she feels more comfortable with the 6'9" length. I have the same rod in the 7' model.

    The first thing she mentioned was how pretty of a rod it was and the second thing was how lightweight it was, like a feather is her exact words.

    Super sensitive, well built and sharp looking. I do not think you can find a better rod in this price point. (Posted on 4/5/16)

    I do all of my straight braid flipping on this rod and to me where it really shines is dragging a biffle head along the bottom. You need to be able to feel everything and with this rod you can. I can't even begin to explain how many other techniques i use this rod for. When I'm fishing on a buddies boat i always have this one with me so i can be versatile. (Posted on 3/1/16)

    To me this is the most versatile rod in the box. I'm not a tall guy, so I tend to stick with rods 7' and under. This rod can accomplish so much with it's power and load characteristics. Above all, I love it for a spinnerbait rod. (Posted on 1/8/16)

    I bought this rod as a worm and light jig rod. It has been amazing. So light and sensitive that you just don't want to put it down. It really takes the edge off when dragging a worm all day. If he breathes on my bait with this thing, he's stuck! (Posted on 12/16/14)

    This is honestly my favorite rod. I would recommend it to anyone to use with a small jig pitching, swim jig, buzzbait, spinnerbait, chatterbait, stickbait, or plastic swimbait. I'll put it like this I am sponsored by Loomis(great rods), and haven't paid full price for a rod in 10 years. I am highly considering spending the $250 to by another one on these rods. Again great rod which has won me a lot of money over the last couple years. (Posted on 9/27/14)
