    Last year I began bass fishing very heavily. 20-30 hours per week. I went out and bought a spinning rod and reel, having never used a baitcaster before. I quickly realized the limitations of a spinning combo for an all-purpose setup. So I began researching relentlessly for a casting rod. I stumbled upon ALX and loved that they prioritized US made materials and US labor as much as possible. I was looking for a general purpose casting rod, as at the time I was only fishing from shore and couldn't carry a ton of technique specific rods all the time. I decided the Promise 7 was the best choice, and I was absolutely right. I threw everything on this rod. Crankbaits, jerkbaits, jigs, frogs, spinnerbaits, Texas rigs, topwater... you name it. With the exception of extremely light, finesse stuff like weightless wacky rigs, ned rigs, etc. The Promise handled all of it flawlessly. I can't speak highly enough of the durability, sensitivity and performance of the rod in all applications. If you want 1 single rod that can handle the broadest spectrum of techniques and that you can count on to hold up, this is the one. I recently purchased an Oxim and a Zolo to add to the lineup, and can't wait to get them out and working once the ice melts. Thanks ALX for a great product, and keep it here in the US! By the way,, I myself would be willing to pay a little more for a rod made with even more US components.

    Great General Purpose Rod

    I bought the Ikos Promise 7 last year on Black Friday and I broke my PB (10.72lb) on this rod. I had it paired with a Shimano Bantom 8.1:1 throwing a Picasso Shock Blade Chatterbait. This rod is very sensitive and now it is my lightweight flippin rod. It is a little on the stiffer side but overall a great rod. It is very light weight and I really like the eva foam/ cork split grip handles. I think that really adds to the sensitivity. You won't go wrong if you buy this rod as a general purpose rod. It's a great buy IMO.

    Better than I hoped for🎣💪

    I was looking for an affordable top notch. After several google searches and reading reviews I decided to give ALX a shot. GLAD I DID!!!
    I got an affordable rod with top of the line quality, feel, looks, and sensitivity. The Promise 7 is my third ALX rod and I currently have them building my wife a Custom rod with all the features she likes. Can’t wait to surprise her with it. If you are looking for a great fishing rod you should give ALX a try. Give them a chance to impress you like they did me.

    Great Rod

    Very high quality rod for the money. Was packaged very well and arrived safe and in one piece.

    The first ALX rod I purchased was an Ikos Hammer but it was a little strong. I purchased a second rod, an Ikos Promise. I liked the Promise, the rod is well balanced and with enough backbone to handle bigger fish and even boat flip them. Jennifer at ALX was very good to deal with and reasonable. With her assistance, I traded the Hammer for a Promise. The ALX rods are well built and in South Carolina. I’m planning to change all my rods to ALX’s.
