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.
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.
Here’s an excellent all-around spinning rod. A great choice for notherns and big, deep-water walleyes. The ISR 703 has a medium-heavy tip and a fast taper that delivers both long range casts and the power necessary to fish Carolina rigs. It is a good deep-water worm and jig rod, especially in tailwater situations where some current is involved. Saltwater anglers will appreciate its power for snook, small tarpon, or casting jigs or spoons for redfish; the quick taper gives you better control in the wind and increases hook setting power for live bait applications. It also makes a nice lightweight striper rod, or if you enjoy simply lounging on the river bank, dunking worms for catfish, well, it’ll fit nicely in a forked stick, too. Now that is versatility.
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.
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.
The ONE rod that is a must have in your arsenal. Ideal for Swim Jigs, Spinnerbaits, Crankbaits, Alabama Rigs, Jerk-baits, and Chatterbaits. The Carbon/Zentron construction makes this the most versatile rod in our lineup! The versatility of this blank comes from three action points. One activated during casting (to properly load the blank). One activated during the lure retrieve (to properly work the lure). And one activated during the hookset (with shock absorption not to lose the fish). If you’re looking for the perfect do everything rod to add to your rod locker or one rod to walk the bank, this is the rod for you.
An excellent 12-pound test, one-piece plug rod for salmon and steelhead. The 760 is also a perfect spinner rod for small rivers, and a terrific rod for drifting small baits for summer steelhead and fall silvers. It has a magnum-power butt and quick, light tip that delivers fast, accurate casts and good fish-fighting ability - whether you’re fishing from a boat or the bank.
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.
A delightfully powerful 7’11” one-piece rod for light-duty surf and breaker fishing. It is the perfect rod for summer and fall surf action for school bass, small blues and weakfish, but don’t let the light-duty part fool you. It handles light metal exceptionally well and has more than enough power in the butt-section to handle larger fish. It is an impressive rod with a nice, crisp tip, capable of tossing ½ to 1 ½ ounce lures out of sight, and you will have no problem pulling fish out of the wash and onto the beach.
