LOVE this rod. Was looking for a new 1/2oz jig rod for flipping/pitching mostly around deep milfoil and this rod did not disappoint! Light, sensitive and tons of muscle to slam the hook home and pull them out of deep weed clumps. Running 50lbs braid as my main line with a 20lbs fluoro leader. Couldn't be happier!
I did lots of homework looking for a good ledge rod for 1/2 to 3/4 ounce jigs. The Brawler performed I like hoped it would today on G’ville. Found a couple of schools of stubborn bass but the ones that i did get to bite my jig got to feel the power of the Brawler. This rod is strong and has sensitivity too! I could tell when I was in the Shell beds and could feel the line dragging up on stumps so I could hope my jig over them without hanging up and breaking off my jig. I have 3 ALX rods now and the next rod I buy will be an ALX rod. Quality, feel, look, and light weight. Give ALX a try. I’m a very satisfied customer!!!
I bought this rod to replace a flipping rod of another brand. I was blown away with how easy the tip made pitching and flipping weights up to 1/2oz. I was able to lay baits into cover softly and even skip baits up under over hanging cover with ease. Then when I actually got my first bite, the sensitivity was definitely NOT lacking, even with a rod of this power. Even though the tip is soft, there is plenty of back bone to wench bass out of the cover with heavy line and a straight shank flipping hook. Don't hesitate to pick this rod up and start pitching and flipping!
