I used to be a die hard Loomis guy until I tried an ALX. I was really skeptical , but I’m definitely sold on these rods now and in the process of replacing the last few loomis rods now. ALX also has the best customer service in the industry hands down.
I purchased the Zolo Crank from Southern Moon Outfitters in Augusta, GA. The lightweight and comfort of this rod allows me to throw it all day without experiencing exhaustion. This rod is an ideal fit for a kayak angler or bass boat angler. Overall, I am very impressed. I own a few ALX rods and would like to eventually have all ALX rods. Don't hesitate to purchase this one.
I have been using this rod for dt-10s, dt-6s, bx brats, flicker shads, and 1.5 square bills. This is an excellent rod for banging square bills into the rocks and timber. It also did pretty well with a few lighter spinnerbaits I tossed on it. I haven't used any on the rod yet, but imagine smaller jerkbaits would also work pretty well with it although it is a little long for that. The handle length is perfect for me and tucks right in by my elbow. I have the rod paired with a daiwa tatula CT type r 6.3:1 and it balances out very well. All in all very well built rod and excellent for smaller crank applications, I can't wait to see what else it can do, Thanks Alex!
