Sometimes it's just difficult, especially in the wind, to cast lightweight lures and smaller soft plastics. That used to be an issue, but no more thanks to NRX technology. First of all, you'll be amazed at how light this rod is and if you doubt the power, just rig it up and give it a try. Only then will you understand what high performance is all about. Add to that sensitivity beyond belief and you've now understand NRX. The extra-fast taper allows you to make low, accurate casts so you can fish right up under the brush - and when a real ‘toad’ grabs your bait, you’ll be in total control. If you need a rod to cast soft plastic jerkbaits and Senko’s, this is the one.
