The Deputy is an outstanding general purpose rod. Great sensitivity and mid range power allow the Deputy to be a jack of all trades. Being able to fish a spinnerbait in the morning and then a texas or carolina rig in the afternoon is extremely popular with coanglers. The Deputy is a workhorse rod and you’ll find yourself needing more than one.

High quality rod, great sensitivity and slightly more sensitive than the toad face. A bit faster of a tip as well. Comfortable to fish for long periods of time. ALX has done it again
Best rod ever
Still tearing up northern Michigan smallmouth with my deputy. I’ve had it going on I think about 4 maybe 5 years. By far the best rod you will ever buy!!

All purpose rod
The ZOLO Deputy is a great all purpose rod. The Deputy is perfect for single hook moving baits and also bottom contact baits.

The Deputy is an outstanding versatile rod. I always take it with me when I'm in the back of someone else's boat because it can do so many things well. It's very light, sensitive, well-balanced and powerful. It's a winner, just like all of my other ALX rods.

My first ALX
What a great rod, awesome sensitivity it seems to be lighter at the tip than my other MH rods but still has plenty of backbone for hook set. I'm looking forward to buying a couple more ALX rods. Also I'm big into U.S. made products and these guys do pretty good on that.
