I fish Chatterbaits, Spinnerbaits, and Swimjigs on this rod. I can feel every vibration and tick of rocks and cover.
BY FAR THE BEST VIABRATING JIG ROD I HAVE EVER USED!!! ITS LIGHT,SENSITIVE AND HANDLES LIKE A DREAM
I paired this up with a 13 Fishing Concept-Z and I am in love! I had a kayak tournament this weekend and I didn't want to put this rod down! I have 12 rods that I carry on my kayak when I fish tournaments. This rod is by the the most superior rod I own and I own a lot of great rod companies products! Absolutely love it. I plan to actually switch all of my rods over to ALX in the very near future (like within a month :))
I already owned a great chatter bait specific rod. I also have three ALX rods Dream, Deputy, and Toadface which are excellent rods. The glass chatter bait rod I had was same price point as the Rumble and very popular. Getting well into my 60s and mostly kayak fishing after several hours it would wear on me pretty well. So loving the ALX rods I got the idea to spend some more $, and order a Rumble. Before the Rumble arrived I got a case of buyers remorse, thinking in this case probably wouldn’t see that great of improvement over the rod I had other than maybe a little less fatigue.
We’ll was I wrong, after one outing it’s obviously a better chatter bait rod, got much better casting accuracy about same distance, can preform shorter accurate cast much better. As for sensitivity, —better, and the rod load on a fish as they take it and hook set is perfect. This rod should be excellent on other styles of jigs (certainly swim) not just bladed jigs. Zero regrets on this purchase, and yes all with less fatigue.
I have called ALX and those folks are super! Also to be clear the comparison I’m making are with rods from other manufacturers in are above same price range. Going forward my money will be spent with ALX
Finally made it out and was able to use the Rumble, unbelievable how good this rod feels with a bladed jig on the other end. I like to use 15lb flouro most of the time for my chatter baits and with this rod it feels like I’m using braid. Pins the fish very well, did not have any throw the hook while fighting them. Highly recommend this rod if your serious about vibrating jigs.
