FSS ISR 706-1
The ISR 706 is a nice choice for pitching small iron or live bait to small tuna, yellowtail or calico bass if you’re a West Coast angler. Right Coasters will find it well suited for albacore, stripers, small grouper or cobia. It is lightweight in every sense of the word, but surprisingly powerful. It is rated for 12 to 25-pound test line and lures up to 1 ½ ounces.
This powerhouse spinning rod is as comfortable in freshwater as it is in salt. It is our spin version of a Carolina-rig rod, with more than enough power to fish heavy cover and big jigs. It handles oversized baits well, and you can fly line small crabs a country mile when casting to cruising permit or small tarpon. Bass anglers that prefer spin over cast will enjoy this rod for pitching jigs and worms around brush and tules, and it is powerful enough to sub as a light-duty flipping stick. After northerns and small muskies? No problem for the ISR 704. This rod may be a beefy 7-foot 4-power; but thanks to IM Graphite technology, you will swear you’re holding a 6-footer.
Specially designed as a deep-water spinning rod, the ISR 763 excels at fishing small leadhead jigs, tube jigs and small to medium crankbaits. The 7’6” length extends the angler’s casting range and provides a much better hook set in deep water. This rod has plenty of power for bigger fish, but it is also very forgiving, thanks to its moderate action. You aren’t apt to lose fish when they are hooked a long way off or going crazy right at the boat. It also makes a top-notch rod for ripping minnow-style lures.
This is an extremely fast-action spinning rod designed to fish light-duty spinner rigs and bottom bouncers like the Lindy rig, especially where clear water demands the use of light line. It is not an ultralight: the tip’s light enough to cast small jigs and jig/leech combos, but it has a powerful butt section. That means excellent lure, line and fighting control whether you’re back-trolling or drifting. And because of its high-modulus sensitivity, this rod is a definite advantage when the bite gets super soft.
A fast-action, medium-light-power casting rod designed to fish bottom bounce rigs. Built with high-modulus graphite for maximum sensitivity and weight reduction, this rod also excels at fishing jigs, inline spinners and crawler harness rigs. If you find yourself in situations where you want to cast jigs to visible structure, this rod is a great choice.
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.
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.
