Light bait rocket launcher

I can’t get over the versatility of this rod. I wanted a small bait rod that would work for crappie, perch and small bass. I got that and than some. I’ve pulled in 5lb bass on this thing and while you’re not muscling them in the fight is incredible and the rod kept the hook pinned the entire time. Micro jigs, mini cranks, drop shots, this rod throws them all with ease and throws them unbelievably far. It makes catching panfish actually fun when everything else wants to be picky. The backbone is incredible when you have to drive a heavier hook home and the sensitivity is mind boggling, you feel every bump pebble and piece of grass in the bottom.

most favorite rod of all time

I bought this rod because I was looking for a specific action throwing small 3" and under swimbaits , tubes , and neds in 20-40 ft of water for smallies. this rod came as a suggestion to me from an ALX pro staffer so I went with it and i am super glad I did. I have it paired up with a shimano twin power 3000 which is the same size as a vanford 2500 but its way nicer. first time out I caught 6 smallmouth all around 3lb range in 37 degree water and I fell in love with it. its now one of those rods that I like so much I would rather go try to catch smallies or go finesse for largies. such an amazing rod thank you tony mac and ALX.

Perfect finesse crankbait rod!

I bought this rod to use with small crankbaits. The action of the rod handles the light line and big fish perfectly! The length let’s you cast a small bait a mile as well. Would highly recommend. Love my other ALX rods as well!

Love this rod. I have 3 NRX and this rod is just as sensitive and light. I have 4 ZOLO's now and I reach for them more and more each trip. Quality components and very sensitive and light.
