Rod Spotlight - ALX Rods ENOX Hunch

The ALX Rods ENOX Series Hunch is a 7', medium power casting rod designed specifically for bass fishing and specializes in smaller baits such as shakey heads, magnum finesse applications, and fluke and Keitech style swimbaits. 

The Hunch is a joy to fish all day. It's light (only 4.2 ounces) and nimble (balances at the reel) and highly responsive thanks to the Toray 1100T carbon fiber construction. There is ample backbone to handle hard fighting fish like stud smallmouth bass and spotted bass. The ideal techniques for the Hunch are shakey heads, drop shot rigs, Neko rigs, wacky rigs, and the Hunch casts a 2.8 to 3.2 soft swimbait with a 1/8 or 1/4 ounce head incredibly well. The rod also sports a fast action that compliments the needed presentation for these techniques. 

One early review of the Hunch from Billy Earl: 

"...Fishing finesse swimbaits on the Hunch series put 65 fish in the boat in two days for my partner and myself! Bites were subtle as is the case mostly in wintertime, and that's where the Hunch shined as well as fighting hard-charging smallmouth on light line! You will not be disappointed with the Enox series line of rods!"

This is funny and fantastic at the same time. I called last Oct and spoke with Alex about a rod that I could cast small swimbaits with. He pointed me to a couple rods and I made the choice of the Dream. It’s a great rod and has done an admirable job and now BOOM!!! A rod made specific for what I’m looking for ! Thanks guys and gals!
