Well balanced


A poorly balanced rod just feels weird in your hands; it’s almost like trying to fit a square peg in a round hole. It just doesn’t feel right. Not to mention, after a long day on the water with an unbalanced rod, you’re probably going to feel the effects of it the next day. It can cause oddly sore muscles and undue fatigue.

I’m happy to say, however, that the Winch rods are all very nicely balanced and feel great in my hands. I can work a jerkbait for 8 hours and not experience any forearm or elbow fatigue at the end of the day. I’ve used a bunch of jerkbait rods that just hurt after a while but this makes the technique a breeze. I can focus more on fishing instead of giving my left arm a break.
