ZOLO Brawler - 7'6", XHeavy, Fast Casting

The Brawler is a best seller in places with fish called “lunkers” and “donkeys”. 7’6″ of carbon fiber power allows for big hook sets with hooks. Fish can’t shake their heads because you’re going to turn them straight back to the boat in a bee line to the livewell. The Brawler is an outstanding blend of a heavy rod that can do lighter work. You can go from pulling a 1 ounce carolina rig to to pitching against that piling in the matter of a bait change. Many of our customers opt for the Brawler as their main big jig rod or when they need a little more versatility than a true flip/pitch rod.

The Brawler will leave them black and blue

My favorite pitching rod. Great tip for accuracy, light weight and sensitive, and very powerful to turn the fish and get them out of the woods. The bass are no match for a Brawler.

Great Offshore Rod!!!

This rod is my go to offshore rod. I can throw 1/2 sled head a mile and get a good hook set on long casts. I also love to throw Carolina rigs on this rod the extra length helps to throw a Carolina rig.

Great 1/2oz jig rod!

LOVE this rod. Was looking for a new 1/2oz jig rod for flipping/pitching mostly around deep milfoil and this rod did not disappoint! Light, sensitive and tons of muscle to slam the hook home and pull them out of deep weed clumps. Running 50lbs braid as my main line with a 20lbs fluoro leader. Couldn't be happier!

Nice jig rod

I did lots of homework looking for a good ledge rod for 1/2 to 3/4 ounce jigs. The Brawler performed I like hoped it would today on G’ville. Found a couple of schools of stubborn bass but the ones that i did get to bite my jig got to feel the power of the Brawler. This rod is strong and has sensitivity too! I could tell when I was in the Shell beds and could feel the line dragging up on stumps so I could hope my jig over them without hanging up and breaking off my jig. I have 3 ALX rods now and the next rod I buy will be an ALX rod. Quality, feel, look, and light weight. Give ALX a try. I’m a very satisfied customer!!!

Sensitive, powerful, with a nice tip

I bought this rod to replace a flipping rod of another brand. I was blown away with how easy the tip made pitching and flipping weights up to 1/2oz. I was able to lay baits into cover softly and even skip baits up under over hanging cover with ease. Then when I actually got my first bite, the sensitivity was definitely NOT lacking, even with a rod of this power. Even though the tip is soft, there is plenty of back bone to wench bass out of the cover with heavy line and a straight shank flipping hook. Don't hesitate to pick this rod up and start pitching and flipping!
