I have been fishing this rod for most of the season and I am very impressed with it. I mainly use it for Texas rigs and jigs but will soon be expanding on it with chatterbaits and buzzbaits and possibly some topwater. This rod can do it all. The feel of the rod is so good that it fits like a glove. It’s very lightweight which is great because when you fish 12-16 hrs on the water on most occasions you don’t want a heavy rod. The action of this rod is perfect as well. Has a soft enough tip that you can place your bait exactly where you want with ease but also had the backbone to pull big fish away from cover when you set the hook. I highly recommend this rod to anyone looking for a good worm/ jig rod or just an all around do it all and the kitchen sink rod. Will definitely be buying more in the future
Bought this rod for an all around go to rod. I am incredibly impressed!! I use it for worm, jig, swim jig, chatter bait etc. and this rod is perfect for every application. It launches the baits a mile. It sets fast and then has a softer bend to hold the fish on so they can’t throw the hook. Great looking rod also. Best rod I have ever owned!! ALX is amazing!! I have the hustler and that is a perfect crank bait rod. Thumbs up to ALX!!
I was able to use this rod this past weekend for the first time and I was not disappointed. It felt good when I was fishing in 20 degree weather. Was able to cast a mile with a 3/8 chatterbait and could feel every bump.
Before I tell you you about this rod, let me tell you about customer service. When my new Oxim rods arrived the shipping tube was almost broken in half. Both rods were broken in half. The delivery driver filed the damage report with his company and I emailed ALX to let them know what happened. ALX emailed me back and said they were sorry my rods were damaged and that 2 new rods would be shipped first thing the next day. You won’t beat that service ANYWHERE!!! These rods look and feel amazing. I used it this weekend throwing a 3/8 swimjig around shoreline grass. The tip allows for accurate casts into tight places and the power of this rod lets give the fish a chance to eat that jig and have the confidence to power it out of the thickest grass. Great rod and excellent customer service!!!
