I bought this rod to give it a try for frog fishing and it has absolutely blown away my expectations. It is lightweight yet has a strong backbone and a fast tip to still be able to cast a mile but rip those fish out of the thickest of cover. My hookup ratio with this rod has also gone through the roof with frogs. As stated in the description, "Secret tip: awesome heavy cover frog rod" but it should not be such a secret... Tell the world!
I don't know squat about fishing but enjoy quality tools for everything I do! This is my first ALX rod and it is light weight and seems to be plenty strong! I just wish it would have helped me catch a fish! Can't fix the fish problem, but I will purchase another ALX rod next time I have a vacancy in my collection! Thank you so much!
This rod is light weight, sensitive and has a strong backbone. Great football jig rod.
I bought this rod a couple months ago and wanted to primarily use it for jigs especially in deeper water for off shore summer fishing. So far I’m very impressed, rod has great sensitivity for dragging and feeling the bottom. Highly recommend
When I opened the package the looks caught my eye from the start. This rod looks amazing as I inspected it closely I notice the rod is well built no sloppy construction. The rod is very light and balances well. First time using it the sensitivity really stands out. I am very pleased with all the quality features especially at this price point.
