Guys, purchased 3 ALX Zolo Trickster rods -these are the real deal-from ned rigs, senkos ,dropshot even flukes -this rod excels at any of these techniques - I was a long time Dobyns guy and swapped the champion extreme spinning rods out for these Tricksters and couldn’t be any happier. The build quality is incredible and the feel in your hand feels like you are holding a much more expensive rod. Sensitivity is awesome -don’t listen to anyone say ALX rods are not sensitive -they are very sensitive. Alex the owner is a great resource of info as I spoke to him on any questions I had. Several of my buddies have become interested in the Zolos and a friend of mine Kevin just ordered a Trickster or two as well. For the money ALX rods are the best bang for your buck :)
The Trickster is the best shaky head rod I have ever used. Incredibly light and sensitive, with plenty of backbone for a strong hook set.
Also a great rod for light jigs in inshore applications. My go to for sea trout.
I really enjoy going on the boat with my husband Phil. I didn't grow up in a fishing family, so I would normally just read a book and sunbathe while my husband fished. Phil would always encourage me to fish, but to be honest, I always felt like my bait just felt "dead" and I was never too sure what my lure was doing down in the water. That all changed last Fall when Phil got me an ALX Zolo Trickster. I have now caught numerous fish on shakeyhead and whacky rigs with my Trickster and I can feel everything my bait is doing down there, especially when a fish bites!
When you need to feel every tiny bite, every little movement of line, the Zolo Trickster will give you every chance you need to set the hook. I’ve been using this Trickster for many years and have won 80% of my tournaments on it. No other shaky head rod would come close to the action and power of a Trickster . It’s hands down the best rod for shaky heads!
