Chaser Rods-What's Your Definition of Big
Our new Striper Elite rods are one of the highest quality, high performance rods available today. All it takes is a few seconds in your hand and you’ll experience their lightness, strength and fantastic feel.
The core of the rod is it’s incredible blank. With the ruggedness of 40% E-Glass and the strength and lightness of 60% IM6 Graphite the result gives a durable limber tip with the backbone to land any Striper swimming. Another plus is the matt anti-scale finish reduces those tiny scales sticking to the blank.
All of the rods (casting and spinning) have Concept guide spacing that includes 10 Fuji guides per rod. The first 5 guides from the tip down are single footed to allow a limber tip, the following guides to the reel seat are double footed to provide more backbone. The result is a perfect parabolic curve on all the models. Next we added an oversized hook keeper to allow you to store you larger Striper lures instead of hooking them on your reel. The rock solid removable handle consist of a rubberized cork fore grip so there is no chipping at the end of the handle. The oversized graphite reel seat has "66 Nylon" blended in for added strength and solid reel fits.
When listening to fisherman and guides everyone wished their rods would grip rod holders a little better. This lead us to add Hyplon below the reel seat which has an incredible gripping power for rod holders or if you have bait slim on you hand while casting. To end it all we added a true bell shape rubber butt cap, this gives you a comforting resting place during a long battle with bruiser fish. All in all they are the ultimate rods for the ultimate bass. We’re sure if you use them once you’ll be hooked on them too.
Recommendations for actions and usages: If you like a limber tip rod for live bait but still has backbone choose the 7ft medium casting or spinning. The 7ft heavy action rod is a better choice for cut bait situations because you can really set the hook, also a good choice for live bait but gives you better control of the fish than the 7ft medium. The 7 1/2ft medium heavy is a great heavier action live bait rod, planner board rod and lead core rod. It also works well on downriggers due to the limber tip but has a lot of snap when the downrigger releases. The 8ft heavy action rod is the bad boy of the bunch and is great for larger fish, fishing below dams or pitching large shad or herring. The 7ft spinning is a wonderful rod for smaller jigs and surface twitch baits. As mentioned above it is also a great limber tip live bait rod. The 7 1/2ft spinning will launch top water baits to surfacing fish with little effort, it is a great buck tail jig rod or spoon jigging rod and is the best all around rod in the series. Add a spinning reel with a bait feeding feature and it makes a great downrigger rod. The 8ft spinning is top choice for heavier fish and larger lures. This rod offers maximum fighting control but with a tip gentle enough to pitch a 1/2lb shad into your favorite hole without slinging it off.
IN SUMMARY, you can use any of the rods for any situation but the above recommendation has been compiled from experiences of hundreds of Striper fisherman across the states.
