F2.5-76XS Flyssa-taper:fast, lure rating: 1/16oz-3/8oz. Line rating 4-10lb- rod is ideal for sweeping hookets with light line, great for hair jigs, finesse swimbaits, deep water dropshotting. Great choice for Okashira Screwhead etc.
F4-74XS Brigand-taper:fast, lure rating:1/8oz -5/8oz, line rating 6-16lb. great for bottom contact presentations like the Dark Sleeper as well as football jigs, tubes and swingheads.
F4.5-71X Otomat-taper:regular, lure rating 1/4oz-3/4oz, line rating 8-20lb. Great rod for Dog X, Diamante, Giant Dog X and PopMax. Some may prefer it for crankbaits as well. In my use of the prototype it really stood out with topwater work as noted. It handles braid very well also.
F7.5-77X Bunker Buster- taper:fast, lure rating:3/4oz- 1 1/2oz, line rating 15-30lbs. Fills the gap in current lineup and shines on heavier jigs and Texas rigs in heavy cover.
F8-78X Mark 48- taper:fast, lure rating 1.5oz-5oz, line rating 20-40lb. Designed as a rod for smaller swimbaits like the 6" Magdraft and I Slide 185. Great castability distance wise, easier to roll cast and skip big swimbaits. Doubled footed guides the length of the rod.
I’m done, my bank account is ruined. I will take 1 of each.
Darn..at first I thought we were in for a F4 7'4 casting rod

What action is that rod?M Perry wrote:I grew really, really partial to the Otomat for topwaters. Beat up some warm water power plant fish on it this past winter.
Precisely what it was designed for sir. I'll have both spins in hand ASAP.Revofisher wrote:F 2.5 7’6. Might be a good hair jig / spy bait rod
