This rod’s blank design is unique – versatility is the name of the game with this model – Its unique design features an extra fast, fine tip for easy bite detection, easier casting of both bait and lures, but a powerful mid section to be able to control the fight of the fish. Ideal for twitching jigs, throwing blades/spinners and spoons.
If you fish large surface lures and medium-size crankbaits, you will want a CBG 714. It is a great rod for deep-diving lures like a Fat Free Shad or Wiggle Wart, and it’ll throw a Rattle Trap the proverbial country mile. Stout enough to handle spinnerbaits and large buzzbaits, this rod also crosses over nicely for most light saltwater flats applications, including reds, bonefish, permit and sea trout. The slower action of our crankbait rods allows anglers fishing shrimp to land the bait very quietly, and that is a definite plus, especially in shallow water where the fish are spooky.
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 graceful presentations 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.
