This is a good choice for fishing jigs, worms and slow rolling big spinnerbaits. It is basically a black bass rod, but has power enough for use for schoolie stripers, snook or even peacock bass. It is an excellent choice for jigging spoons in heavy timber or vertical jig and worm presentations. It has a stiff tip that allows you to set the hook with authority and has more than enough backbone to move large fish away from snags. This is a rod for big bass where there are more trees and brush than casting area. IMX makes it really light and about as sensitive as you can imagine!
