Many techniques in bass fishing can go either spinning or casting. They ride the line of personal preference for the right type of gear. The OXIM Trance does an outstanding job offering a casting rod solution for bass fishing techniques that use lighter weights and border on finesse presentations. Weightless flukes, topwater baits, 1/4oz shaky heads, Sway Sticks, and small swimbaits like 3" style Tail Teasers are well suited for the OXIM Trance.
Lure: 1/4 - 5/8 oz
Average Rod Weight: 3.9oz

Balance Point: 21" (End of butt to point of balance without a reel)
I wanted a good Topwater rod that I could also use as a shakey head rod. I mainly fish out of a kayak and need a rod that can be used on a couple of different techniques The tip on the Trance is fast with the medium action you want to not rip the trebles out of the fishes mouth. it also has the back bone t o set the hook with a shakey head! if your looking for a great topwater, Shakey head, or fluke rod, don't hesitate on buying the Oxim Trance!!

Best Weightless Fluke Rod!!!
I purchased the OXIM Trance at the Bassmaster Classic expo. Took it out the next day and caught eight good size largemouth from two to four pounds. The rod had enough back bone to set the hook but enough tip to keep the the fish on and skip the bait.
This is a nice rod. I have used all types of lures with it. Alx has made another nice rod
