The Edge Swimbait 808 is a great mod-fast action swimbait rod for small to medium single hook swimbaits (up to 7 inches) and hard baits up to 8 ounces. The sweet spot for this rod is hard baits around the 2 to 6 ½ ounce range. From a DRT Tiny Klash to a Deps Slide Swimmer 250, the moderate fast action of the 808 is incredible for keeping big bass pinned. With this rod in your arsenal, you will no longer have to worry about pulling hooks on the fish that really matter. In the saltwater, this rod excels at throwing swimbaits and jerkbaits for a variety of inshore species. Calico bass, small grouper, and small ling cod or no match for the power behind this rod.
This is a fast-action 4-power rod, making it a good choice for most jigging applications. This includes shallow-water pitching, deep-water jigging, plastic worms and slow-rolling oversize spinnerbaits. The MBR 704 was designed for largemouth bass, but it doubles nicely for big northerns and light-duty muskie fishing. The tip is stiff, with a magnum butt for moving large fish in heavy cover. It excels in brushy, tree-choked areas where you need a powerful rod to get the fish to the boat. It is also the perfect choice for fishing heavy jigs or large plastic worms in deep water where “feel” is paramount, and for heavy duty spoon-jigging, where your ability to set the hook in deep water is especially important.
A good choice for fishing light to medium jigs and worms, as well as medium to large spinnerbaits. The MBR 703 was designed to fish bass, northerns, walleyes and even lake trout in certain applications. But it also makes a very nice light saltwater rod for snook, redfish and specks. It is powerful, with a light tip, which allows for a good hook set, and still has enough power to move fish away from heavy cover, without feeling too stiff. An excellent choice for spoon jigs, large crankbaits and “slug-o” type baits, this may be the most versatile rod in our entire line.
Designed initially as a Hover rod for salmon and steelhead, the HVR 763 has proven to be an ideal bass rod too. This is an exceptional rod for small shallow-running crankbaits and vibrating/wiggle baits like Big O’s or Super Spots. This rod also handles small buzzbaits and stickbaits exceptionally well, and it makes a terrific ultralight saltwater popping rod for sea trout and puppy reds. The HVR 763 loads easily so you can cast light baits accurately, and it excels in clear water where light line and small lures are the keys to success. For the salmon fishery, Hover fishing is the presentation of eggs just off the bottom right in front of the fish’s mouth. The tip needs to be very light to notice a salmon pinch down the presented bait. But the blank must also have power for an angry 40-pound chinook. What makes this rod unique is an incredibly light tip and a powerful backbone all the way throughout.
A remarkably versatile deep-water jigging rod, this powerful rod's 7’3” length delivers increased tip speed, longer casts and more positive hook sets. It works extremely well for Carolina-rigged worms, pitching jigs or even light-duty flipping. If weeds are the dominant cover in your lake, you will appreciate the magnum power of the MBR 734 for pulling big bass out of the thick stuff. Anglers heading for South America really like this rod for peacock bass and other oversized exotics. Its saltwater uses are fairly limited, but anglers chucking lures for big snook, redfish or small tarpon will find it more than sufficient. Freshwater stripers, northerns, muskies, and even salmon can be taken with this rod, but mainly it is a serious big bass tool.
When you fish for big bass in heavy cover, you need a rod that can move them out of the brush before they get all wrapped up. That is where this rod really shines. Heavy line, thick brush, big jigs and short tempered largemouths are what this rod is all about. If you live where big stripers and hybrids chase bait, you will also be a real fan of the MBR 735. Naturally, a rod this powerful can easily be used in light saltwater, say for tarpon or cobia, but it is designed primarily for heavy cover, leadhead jigs, and oversize bucketmouths.
