Perfect heavy duty rod

This is the perfect Carolina rig rod. I always fish my Carolina rig with a 3/4oz weight and this Dragger has enough back bone to cast that weight a mile, but it also has a soft enough tip and unbelievable sensitivity, so I often use it when I'm punching grass with weights 1/2oz and heavier.

Perfect Carolina "Rigger"

I finally got to use my new Dragger for the first time this past March and it didn't disappoint. Carolina Rigging is my bread and butter technique and I was able to make better hook sets from longer distances. Strong and sensitive. I'll be adding more ALX rods to my collection very soon.

Awesome Carolina rig and 3/4 rattle trap rod!

I have had my Dragger for a few years now and I absolutely love it. I always use my dragger for throwing a Carolina rig and throwing a 3/4 oz trap. This rod has a great backbone for driving the hook in on long cast and had a nice tip thats perfect for keeping them pinned with a heavy bait like a 3/4 trap. The reason I like to throw a 3/4 trap on the dragger is because when i was throwing a 3/4 trap in eel grass or hydrilla I was struggling to clean the bait off efficiently on longer cast with a 7'3" Med Hvy rod and I also felt like my hook sets were not as solid as I would like them to be. I then switched to a Dragger and it was the deal! I was able to clean the bait off a lot easier and get a lot better hook ups too! So far every fish that I have hooked up with on a 3/4 trap has gotten in the boat and thats saying something because if you throw a big trap at all you know your going to lose some, thats just the name of the game. The Dragger is the deal!!

Carolina rig

I finally got on the water to use my Dragger. I matched this rod with a Shimano Curado K xg reel. I was using a 1oz brass carolina rig with a 3 foot leader. Main line was 20 lb braid and the leader was 15 fluorocarbon. I was fishing in depth of 10 to 25 feet on the Tennessee river. I give this rod 5 stars for sensitivity. I could actually count the pebbles I came over. The rod loads and casts like a dream. I love the 10 inch handle. I can get plenty of leverage for hooksets and not bruise my ribs. I have several rods with 12 inch handles (not ALX) and they seem to be in my way many times. I love the light weight of the rod. At the end of the day my shoulder wasn't killing me. I plan on ordering more in the near future. I am thinking I need a dropshot rig.

My New Northern Pike Rod

I purchased this rod for northern pike in Canada. Last year I bought a Deputy but wanted something with a bit more backbone. I paired it with a Abu Garcia Revo Beast X. It will not disappoint. After casting in the backyard, it throws baits like a dream. I’m sure that it will handle the toothiest pike that I can raise from the depths. I would have liked another 2” of length on the butt section. I can’t wait to make this my go-to for toothy critters...
