I used this rod on Lake Kissimmee pitching the flat reeds. I was able to land and control every fish. Swinging the fish in the boat was effortless as well. I have to thank capt. Brett for turning me on to these rods.
If your gonna fish in Florida you gotta have a good flippin, pitchin stik. This one is a great rod, light, sensitive , good balance , with enough backbone to winch em out of the thick stuff. I would recommend this to any and everybody. Plus it also can be used for froggin or other styles of fishing because it also casts great. And it won’t break your piggy bank
This rod is awesome! I used it for the first time yesterday in a Thursday night tournament and it will cast a hollow body frog a mile! It has a ton of backbone to drag bass out of any cover, yet is light enough to keep you from wearing down from slinging it all day! Love it!
Everyone should own one of these I pulled a 10.5 out of the nastiest junk and didn’t think twice pole help up with no problem
Great Rod, plenty of back bone to yank them big girls out of the funk.
Got this rod for my husband for Christmas and he can't put it down
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!
