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.
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.
A Big "Thank You! to all at ALX Rods for all the fine work and craftmanship that you put into your rods. The Deputy is by far one of many versatile rods in my arsenal of ALX Rods that I own. If you don't own a Deputy, Just pull the trigger and never look back on this one. "You'll be glad you did!"
Purchased mainly for bottom contact (plastics, jigs) and I am very pleased with the weight and the sensitivity of the rod. Makes a great spinner bait rod as well….but the best part overall is the great customer service.
I stopped in to check out a couple of rods unannounced. I was welcomed with open arms. I got a tour of the manufacturing of how the rods are made and bought 2 rods while there. Within 2 weeks I have a total of 6 of there rods. This should tell you the quality of the rods.
