This 9'6" casting rod can cast spinners, drift gear and floats (bobbers) with accuracy and distance. The taper of the blank bends consistently to the fight of fish and loads well on the cast. It also has a fast response to set hooks into biters and feel the 'tick' of the bottom. If you're into casting #3, #4 and #5 spinners like the bluefox, this is a great baitcaster rod choice. Make sure it's paired up with a low profile baitcaster reel, and put a smaller diameter line (braid, mono or flouro) on it (6-15lb recommended) As a float rod for steelhead and salmon, it can mend and set the hook on a bobber-down efficiently.
This salmon & steelhead rod has even been used as a long rod on the Columbia River trolling worm harnesses and crankbaits for walleye. This is a great choice for bobber-dogging baits and beads. You'd be hard pressed to find a better 9'6" steelhead and salmon rod in this affordable price range.
Fish the best-selling X-11 series and you'll see why its the best value on the market, from a history or rodbuilding innovation. The cork handle and balanced design makes it easy to spend longer days in the rain, sun or snow. Braid, mono or flouro lines are accepted by the well-spaced guide layout and reel seats are sized for popular reel choices.
