Final impressions

line guide on a bass fishing rod

I really like this rod. So many times, there’s an emphasis put on weightlessness and looks in regards to both rods and reels. With all sorts of neon-colored combos out there these days, I personally found it refreshing to pick up a fairly plain-looking rod and go fish heavy cover with it. There’s not a whole lot of aesthetics with this rod; it’s matte black with a little big of grey on it.

Nothing fancy. Nothing unnecessary. Nothing cute.

Just a dang workhorse of a bass fishing rod that’ll carry its weight in any heavy-cover situation.

Maybe I’m just weird. But I love a good, ol’ fashioned whooping stick and in my opinion, Lew’s has nailed it with this one.
