This rod was designed specifically to fish light jigs, grubs and minnow-type hard baits. It is perfectly balanced for eight-pound line and ¼-ounce lures, but is versatile enough to go up or down a line-size and still perform exceptionally well. If you fish small surface lures on spinning gear, this is a good choice. It is extremely light and sensitive thanks to our GLX technology. It has a soft tip to cast light baits, yet enough power to handle oversize surprises. Walleye anglers will appreciate this rod for fishing small lead heads tipped with a crawler or leech and it can also handle shallow to medium depth crankbaits. It works well for vertical jigging or small spinnerbaits that are too light a baitcasting outfit.
