This rod’s blank design is unlike any other SJR we make, and it is a lot more powerful than its rating sounds. Its unique design features a soft, flexible tip for tossing both bait and lures, but the magnum butt-section is very powerful, giving you total control. This rod is perfect for throwing jigs in situations with heavy current.
One of our most versatile warmwater light casting rods, the ISR 662 has a fast taper for a more positive hook set and greater casting distance. The length provides better line and lure control, especially in deep water, where slack line may cost you a fish. It is a good choice for fishing minnow baits like the Long-A and Rapala, and the preferred rod for split-shotting worms and grubs. For walleye and bass, this is a good light spinnerbait and crankbait rod. It doubles nicely for a lot of light saltwater uses, too, including redfish, specks, small snapper and even permit, with more than enough power to handle the occasional lunker.
A remarkably versatile deep-water jigging rod, this powerful rod's 7’4” length delivers increased tip speed, longer casts and more positive hook sets. It works extremely well for Carolina-rigged worms, pitching jigs in close or even light-duty flipping. If weeds are the dominant cover in your lake, you will appreciate the magnum power of the MBR 744 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.
No compromises here. This is the muscle rod in the flipping category. It is designed to pull big largemouth out of those heavy weedbeds in Lake Minnetonka, up Minnesota way, or Florida’s Okeechobbee. It is as stout as the 7-power rating suggests, able to move big bass out of the thickest cover, yet it is lighter than you can imagine, providing super sensitivity and allowing the angler to fish all day with little or no fatigue.
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 723 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.
