    My 5th ALX rod

    Was looking for a general purpose rod to give me some flexibility in rigging for/fishing tournaments. I wanted another Zolo but they were out of stock (I have 2 cranks, a Dream, and a Twitch on board and rigged already). As I read thru the features on the other lines of rods in the ALX collection I quickly zeroed in on the Promise 7. I paired it to a Daiwa Tatula hi-speed reel and rigged it with my favorite jig. I was immediately impressed with the performance of the Promise 7. Casts a mile, soft tip allowed me to feel everything I touched on the bottom, and the strong butt enabled me to easily pull fish from brush and deeper water. There is no let-up in quality or workmanship on this rod so don't let the price fool you. Same quality blank and components I enjoy on my Zolo line rods. I ordered it on a WED, it arrived on FRI. Service just doesn't get any better than that.

    I ordered a Buzz 7 along with the Promise 7. Made a gift if that to a good friend who was looking for a general purpose cranking stick. He comments mirror mine. He did let me cast it a few times to get a feel for its performance. This is a total package cranking stick.

    Thanks, Alex and team, for another great rod. Y'all rock!


    All-purpose Masterpiece!

    This rod has so many uses and is super strong yet super sensitive. My first use of one came with a ned rig and I've followed that up with jigs, top water, and numerous worm presentations. The feel of this rod and its overall performance make it one of the best in the business!

    Great rod!

    This is one of my favorite rods. I use it for swim jigs, chatterbaits, spinnerbaits, buzz toads, whopper ploppers and soft swimbaits and it does an excellent job with all of those baits. I have 4 ALX rods (1 Zolo and 3 Ikos) and the build quality on all of the rods is as good as any rod I've ever purchased. Also, the customer service is exceptional - I broke my first purchase of this rod and used the SureSet replacement program to get a new one - the process was simple and the rod was delivered the next day. I definitely plan on buying more ALX rods!
