ZOLO Skipper - 6'9", Medium Heavy +, Fast Casting

Under docks... under tree limbs... skipping is highly effective for finding less pressured fish that are ready to fill your weigh bag. The ZOLO Skipper has the perfect blend of tip and power to load up a sling shot cast that bounces across the surface and then pulls that fish out from pilings and stumps. The short length also works great for coanglers looking for a heavier powered rod that is easier to work around poles and light posts in the back of the boat.

Get a Skipper

If you don’t have one of these rods in your arsenal get one. The skipper has been my go to jig skipping rod and it has performed flawlessly. Great for close quarters skipping to docs and overhangs. Just because it is a shorter rod don’t think it won’t be able to drive the hook home and handle big fish. It has plenty of backbone and I have had no problem landing fish 5 pounds and up with this rod. Sensitivity is great as well and I have no problem detecting those subtle jig bites. As with any ALX rod build quality is excellent and I love the look and feel if this rod.

Well I’ll start with the shipping that was prompt and the rod was obviously packed with care so that alone is 5 stars in my book! I fish as many local tournaments a year that I can and to say I have a rod and reel sickness is probably an understatement ! I’m extremely picky with my equipment and I’ve gone through most brands at least once. All I want to do is fish! And do it with “perfect “ gear.
To be fair this is my first ALX rod and I’ve only had it out fishing once so far but......
I’ve fell in love with ALX
After 5 casts with my jig I knew this rod isn’t just another pretty face.
It’s got it all!
I will own more ALX rods and if they live up to the technique specific standards they did on this one I won’t be surprised if all my rods are ALX in the next couple years.
Well done ALX team!!
Keep it up

This is my first ALX rod and it will not be my last!!! Once I received this rod I knew from how it was shipped the time and quality ALX invest into there products. I am very pleased with the backbone and how sensitive the tip is. ALX keep up the great work.

Amazing rod

Amazing skipping rod, but but it is also pretty versatile. This is my newest addition to my ALX arsenal, as I work to switch every rod I own to this company. No other rod out there can compare to them.

This rod is great for slow rolling spinnerbaits and can't wait to try it for swim jigs.
