AWESOME ROD, THE FEEL IS GREAT AND HAS PLENTY OF BACKBONE!
This is my favorite new rod for flippin all day it's light and sensitive good for heavy cover. But it also is soft enough for lighter cover and presentations. You need more than one though because it's an amazing frog rod and waking topwater swimbaits! Really swimming frogs spooks buzzbaits anything you wanna throw around some cover and need long cast and great backbone this is your rod! And if your a flipper then trust me just buy five!
Really enjoy the feel and sensitivity of this rod. Heavy enough to drag the big girls out of the thick stuff, but sensitive to pick up subtle bites. Caught my personal best, an 8lb14oz tank, on Lake Okeechobee on 3/13/17 and couldn't have landed her without my Okeechobee Rod!
Fast tip and well balanced. Worth every penny. Paired with Lews Super Duty, hands down best combo out there for flipping and pitching.
Start by saying they package these rods very well and ship pretty quick hands down best rod Ive put in my hands definitely recommend these rods to anyone thanks for a great product
The Okeechobee rod is one hell of a rod, Ive caught bass flippin thick grass mats with it and I've caught giant smallies using a 1oz jigs with it. For me its a great all purpose rod for your bigger baits. Definitely a rod you want to have in your arsenal!
Great rod. Light, sensitive and the power to bring em air born. Doesn't matter the cover, this rod will get them out. If your looking for a premium rod this is definitely the one. Don't think, just get it and you will not be sorry. Thanks Trevor for guiding me in the right direction. I have it paired with a Lew's super duty.
When you name a rod after a lake like Okeechobee, you know you'll be able to do multiple things with it. From flipping jigs and craws in the Kissimmee grass or flipping lighter reed heads, this rod will get it done. I'm very impressed!
Light, Strong and Sensitive
