Throwing big baits can be tiring, as can be hucking them all day on XH action 8-foot rods. The goal was to design a big rod that could handle big treble hook swimbaits but fished more like a conventional crankbait rod. In the seed testing a few of the anglers said this rod kept summer bass hooked better than they had ever seen other rods do. So much that they were considering changing out a bunch of rods to softer tip swimbait rods.
That’s partially because of how comfortable the rod is in your hands. You just lean into the fish like you would with a deep diving crankbait and they stay pegged. You can really lean into them hard and keep cranking and keep the fish pegged.
