IKOS Hustler - 7', Medium Heavy, Moderate Casting

The IKOS Hustler is the perfect all-around crankbait rod. It handles cranks diving to roughly 15′ deep with ease. It also maneuvers easily around cover and the soft tip casts a mile when fishing open banks and points. Superb, buttery smooth action from the S-Glass construction while maintaining excellent sensitivity to determine crankbait placement around grass lines and bottom composition.

***Hustler does not feature an exposed blank reel seat due to the diameter of the rod blank***

    Glass Rod

    I never realized how important a glass rod is when fishing crank baits. I’m normally one who sets the hooks hard. I’ve fished this rod solid for 2 weeks daily. I’m very impressed with the bend in the rod at hook set. I own several ALX rods (all different models) my next purchase will be another Hustler so I can have setups for different depths.

    My FAVORITE rod!

    I have had this rod for about 90 days. I fish 5-6 times monthly from a kayak. My equipment takes a beating. This rod is phenomenal! Plain and simple my favorite rod. I throw all manner of baits on this rod. It handles everything. To date I have caught four bass over 5lbs on the Hustler. Two of those fish were landed in swift river current. The Hustler has the perfect combo of tip and backbone to keep those bigs pinned and withstand that surge right at the boat without a break-off. I have met Alex personally at Southern Moon Outfitters in Augusta, GA. He is an intelligent, gracious, and personable fella who just wants people to enjoy fishing with his company's outstanding equipment. I also have personal experience with the customer service of ALX Rods and it is top-notch! I will become a repeat customer. My next ALX purchase will be a heavy swimbait rod. Buy ALX Rods with confidence and start putting more fish in your kayak, boat, or on the bank! I
