Casting a soft jerkbait, weighted only by the size of hook you use, requires a very responsive rod tip. Setting the hook requires a powerful butt and mid-section for a positive lock-up, especially when the bite comes just as the bait hits the water on an extra-long cast. The advantage of this rod is an excellent combination of both.
GLX Graphite For the hard-core angler that demands the ultimate in performance these blanks are the best of the best. GLX will allow you to build the lightest, strongest and most sensitive rods possible. These blanks allow you to build rods up to 25% lighter than rods at comparable strength, putting these blanks in a class all by themselves. There are seven models available in fly, 13 in spinning and casting and two saltwater popping rods.
