BWS MBR 733-1
Just when you think you’ve got everything covered, somebody invents a new technique or revives an old one. In this case, it is a little bit of both. Caroline-rigged plastic worms require a bit longer rod to handle the long leaders associated with the technique, while deep-water jig fishing is much easier with a long rod because it increases the leverage during the hook set and moves more line. The 733 is excellent for both applications. Not to mention the new oversized crankbaits that anglers have incorporated to reach deep ridges and mid-lake humps. While you want a lighter tip to allow the plug to wobble enticingly, you also want a little extra backbone to handle the larger baits like the ⅝ ounce Fat Free Shad or the big Bombers. It is a matter of leverage, and this rod makes the job a lot easier.
The finesse technique of dropshotting is exceptionally effective for the most finicky fish. This rod was initially intended for the dropshot technique, but has expanded to Ned Rigs, Shaky Heads, Finesse Swimbaits, and Neko Rigs. When light tackle and a graceful presentation are the name of the game – our dropshot rods answer the call. The tip of the rod is very light for setting the hook with lightwire hooks and with a couple of quick turns of the reel, the rod takes care of the rest. The carbon fiber grips allow the angler to “see” underwater for the most subtle, finicky bites – leaving nothing to chance.
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.
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.
Welcome to the “mega” jig rod in the Mag Bass series. When you pitch into a small, brushy opening, you have to pull the fish out of that same hole. There is no getting around it. And when those fish are 5-pound-plus largemouth, your rod has better be stout. Largemouth, especially big ones, may not have the stamina to last in a long fight, but you will not find a fish that pulls harder for 30 or 40 seconds - especially in heavy cover. It requires a rod with plenty of backbone. One that is light enough to use all day, yet that quickly reacts with authority. That is exactly where the MBR 705 comes in. It has a magnum fast taper with an extra-strong tip, which means when you move the rod, the fish comes with it. It is as simple as that. This is also a very good choice for peacock bass.
Designed initially as a Hover rod for salmon and steelhead, the HVR 764 has proven to be an ideal bass rod too. This is an awesome rod for medium deep-diving crankbaits like the smaller Fat Free Shad and Deep Wee R’s. Spinnerbaits will also feel at home when using this rod. One area that this rod truly excels at is with big stickbaits like the Zara Spook. It loads easily, it is extremely lightweight, and it has more than enough power to handle big fish. 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.
When you have to resort to those big, deep-diving crankbaits to dredge up a bass or two, this is the rod you will want. It is extremely light, and sensitive enough that you can feel a big bass just look at your bait, and so responsive you will be ready for every move he makes. The slow action allows your bait to work perfectly and lets the fish catch up with it. And the 4 power rating means there is plenty of muscle once you hook into that proverbial monster of the deep.

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.
