most favorite rod of all time

I bought this rod because I was looking for a specific action throwing small 3" and under swimbaits , tubes , and neds in 20-40 ft of water for smallies. this rod came as a suggestion to me from an ALX pro staffer so I went with it and i am super glad I did. I have it paired up with a shimano twin power 3000 which is the same size as a vanford 2500 but its way nicer. first time out I caught 6 smallmouth all around 3lb range in 37 degree water and I fell in love with it. its now one of those rods that I like so much I would rather go try to catch smallies or go finesse for largies. such an amazing rod thank you tony mac and ALX.

Perfect finesse crankbait rod!

I bought this rod to use with small crankbaits. The action of the rod handles the light line and big fish perfectly! The length let’s you cast a small bait a mile as well. Would highly recommend. Love my other ALX rods as well!

Mcsmalls

Love this rod. I have 3 NRX and this rod is just as sensitive and light. I have 4 ZOLO's now and I reach for them more and more each trip. Quality components and very sensitive and light.

Great for smallmouth

Don’t let the ‘light’ action intimidate you, this is a great rod for wrangling with smallies! This 7’ 6” rod not only allows you to cast light finesse tackle a long ways, but it also gives you plenty of leverage on big smallmouth no matter how far away from the boat they are. Personally I use it for spybaits and small swimbaits but would work well for other finesse techniques as well!

Great Rod!!

I bought this rod a couple of weeks ago after researching rods and rod companies on the internet and I couldn't be happier with it, I like to finesse smallmouth on the susquehanna river and this rod is just what I was looking for, the balance and feel is fantastic, it has a nice light tip with plenty of backbone, the handle is perfect size for me, I liked it so much I bought my son and myself an Enox Charmer for drop shotting, I will be buying more ALX rods, I love em!!
