Champion Extreme 702C Info

Post by russ57 » Sat Mar 28, 2020 2:16 pm

Has anyone used this rod? I am looking for more of a BFS rod to throw mostly ned rigs but also smaller finesse rigs as a whole.

How small of neds could I go down to when paired up with an Alphas CT SV?

No issues with a 1/16 oz head and a half leeched out Zinkerz or a TRD Ticklerz. It does alright with the ned stuff, but might be a touch too powerful. Wish they still offered the 701C. The 702C is a great bottom contact rod. I really like fishing 2.5" tubes t-rigged with either a 1/16 or 1/8 bullet weight. I'm still considering getting a second one.

I ordered one up, was too good to pass up at $204. May need to stick to some heavier neds but I will make it work.

Now I just need a reel..lol

I’m curious about this rod also. What else are ya’ll throwing with it. Any moving baits. Want more of an all around finesse setup. Not fun carrying a bunch of rods around the pond.
