This powerhouse spinning rod is as comfortable in freshwater as it is in salt. It is our spin version of a Carolina-rig rod, with more than enough power to fish heavy cover and big jigs. It handles oversized baits well, and you can fly line small crabs a country mile when casting to cruising permit or small tarpon. Bass anglers that prefer spin over cast will enjoy this rod for pitching jigs and worms around brush and tules, and it is powerful enough to sub as a light-duty flipping stick. After northerns and small muskies? No problem for the ISR 704. This rod may be a beefy 7-foot 4-power; but thanks to IM Graphite technology, you will swear you’re holding a 6-footer.
Specially designed as a deep-water spinning rod, the ISR 763 excels at fishing small leadhead jigs, tube jigs and small to medium crankbaits. The 7’6” length extends the angler’s casting range and provides a much better hook set in deep water. This rod has plenty of power for bigger fish, but it is also very forgiving, thanks to its moderate action. You aren’t apt to lose fish when they are hooked a long way off or going crazy right at the boat. It also makes a top-notch rod for ripping minnow-style lures.
The SJR 732 has a fast taper for long-range casts and the perfect blend of power and feel for deep-water jigging. When you sweep the rod, a lot of line moves - and that makes it a good choice for heavy-duty split shotting and light-duty Carolina rigs. It makes an excellent buzzbait rod and the 7’3” length aids in ripping minnow baits over deep-water humps and points. What’s more, it handles wind and larger baits equally well. Saltwater anglers, meanwhile, will like its powerful, fast action for shallow water applications where cover is sparse but the fish make long, powerful runs.
