Ordered my Wizard on Wednesday morning and it was delivered on Friday afternoon. Comparing what I had been using to the Wizard is like taking a knife to a gunfight. The Wizard is head and shoulders above my old Ned rod. If your looking spend the money.
This is my first ALX rod I have purchased. The order process was lightening fast, and the rod arrived well packed quickly. The craftsmanship looks and feels excellent. The rod is lightweight, but feels robust. I ordered the Enox Wizard, which is rated as a MEDIUM rod. I was was looking for something to manage lure weights in the MEDIUM range, however prefer a rod with enough backbone to get a nice hooket, and this one feels like it hit the mark perfectly. Should be a great set-up for throwing NED rig, small swimbaits, weightless flukes, etc. I paired the rod with a Shimano Vandford 2500 reel, and the balance point of the combo is just about at the tip of the upper cork, and the combo looks and feels great. I cannot wait to load up on some big smallmouth on Lake St. Clair with this set-up. I have already started to look at what other rods in my rotation I could upgrade with ALX.
Want the ultimate drop shot/Shakey head rod? The ALX Enox Wizard is by far the best best I’ve ever fished. I’ve been fishing the Zolo Trickster for years and never thought anything can top it. The Enox Wizard has now found its spot on my front deck every time out. At 7’2 you can make super long cast and the length will let you stick them in deep water and at the end of those long cast.
The Wizard has a really soft tip that has no sponge feeling to it. It is extremely responsive. After the tip the back bone has a ton of power for a finesse rod blank. It never feels like it doesn’t have enough power or has too much power. It uses what it needs. ￼￼The new split grip give you sure feeling of the rod blank to feel every tick. Sensitivity it is absolutely remarkable!
I love the Zolo series and fished them for the last 9 years but, the new Enox series is a completely different animal! Hands down the best out there! Give the Enox series a try. Guarantee you will love them!!!
Unbelievable craftsmanship. Perfectly balanced. The split grip gives more feel and better handling. The lightest and most sensitive rod I’ve ever fished! The Wizard is my dedicated shakey head rod. If you are looking for the ultimate finesse rod, look no further then the new Enox Wizard!
