I love this rod for flipping, pitching, and punching. The moderate fast action is perfect to detect bites without the fish feeling the resistance. I was missing several fish with my fast action heavy rod in close quarters as the fish would almost rip the rod right out of my hand before I could set the hook. The moderate fast action of this rod allows for just enough give in the tip to accommodate that issue and then still has plenty of backbone to heave them out of the structure or thick vegetation. This rod rocks for flipping, pitching, and punching!
IV been looking for good rods and I'm happy to say I found them I'll be ordering more shipping is super fast had my rod in 2 days.Thanks again
This is a great rod for flipping heavy matted vegetation, but it’s also great for throwing larger boot tail swimbaits! That my primary use for this rod, mostly for swimbaits like a 5” zoom swimmer or even the 4-5” boom boom swimbaits. The long rod with a moderate tip allows for it to load up and really launch a swimbait which helps when covering water! Great rod to check out if you live on a grassy fishery so you can flip when it’s matted and swimbait when it’s not.
I use this rod primarily for my 1/2oz and bigger swim-jigs and chatter baits. It can launch big cranks or jigs and still has the back bone to pull them out of the slop
