  • ZOLO Skipper - 6'9", Medium Heavy +, Fast Casting

    Under docks... under tree limbs... skipping is highly effective for finding less pressured fish that are ready to fill your weigh bag. The ZOLO Skipper has the perfect blend of tip and power to load up a sling shot cast that bounces across the surface and then pulls that fish out from pilings and stumps. The short length also works great for coanglers looking for a heavier powered rod that is easier to work around poles and light posts in the back of the boat.

    Technique specific Skipping Rod

    Short handle, great backbone a fast tip make this rod the best that I have owned.
    the length works great in those tight, hard to get to places.

    Never been happier with a rod

    This rod skips like a dream and has landed me some nice fish. It's really light and it has some backbone. Where I fish it's weedy under the docks and this rod had no issues getting them out. Only thing I wish is that they sold them in Canada.

    Fished this rod for couple of months now. I am a three rod kayak kind of guy so versatility is a key. Bought it for (1) swim jigs, (2) spinnerbaits, (3) heavy cover finesse(ish) jigs. Does it all really well but absolutely shines with (3). Biggest haul so far was a 20-30 lb snapping turtle that inhaled riot minima jig in the middle of submerged tree pile up. My fourth but not last alx rod. Maestro is probably next.

    Get a Skipper

    If you don’t have one of these rods in your arsenal get one. The skipper has been my go to jig skipping rod and it has performed flawlessly. Great for close quarters skipping to docs and overhangs. Just because it is a shorter rod don’t think it won’t be able to drive the hook home and handle big fish. It has plenty of backbone and I have had no problem landing fish 5 pounds and up with this rod. Sensitivity is great as well and I have no problem detecting those subtle jig bites. As with any ALX rod build quality is excellent and I love the look and feel if this rod.

    Well I’ll start with the shipping that was prompt and the rod was obviously packed with care so that alone is 5 stars in my book! I fish as many local tournaments a year that I can and to say I have a rod and reel sickness is probably an understatement ! I’m extremely picky with my equipment and I’ve gone through most brands at least once. All I want to do is fish! And do it with “perfect “ gear.
    To be fair this is my first ALX rod and I’ve only had it out fishing once so far but......
    I’ve fell in love with ALX
    After 5 casts with my jig I knew this rod isn’t just another pretty face.
    It’s got it all!
    I will own more ALX rods and if they live up to the technique specific standards they did on this one I won’t be surprised if all my rods are ALX in the next couple years.
    Well done ALX team!!
    Keep it up
