My new trout assault weapon rod for 2023

18 posts in this topic

Finally got it in. It fits many of my needs & wants. the only con so far is its 5ft-10in in length. I was not looking to go further then 5ft-8in. But I see how it goes on the river tomorrow;) . 

Initial impressions are, the rod is way lighter then the G-Loomis rod I was using. Materials have a slightly better feel. Seems like it has nice back bone. Balances pretty nice. The eyelets on the top sections are smaller then what Im used to. But its the same way on my Tailwalk that I use up in the W. Branch Delaware. Wish me luck fellows on the river tomorrow to see how this beast preforms ......

Best of luck with it! It looks too pretty to use! I look forward to seeing photos of many big trout caught on this rod. Let us know how it performs. I’m sure it will do just fine.

That looks interesting… is there no rear grip or am I missing something? The AGS guides are cool, wish I could get them for rod building.  Good luck with the new stick!! Hopefully it’s a success! :th:

this was my 1st thought. But I want one. Thinking about going to the local tackle shop that does rod repairs & see what solutions he mite have. I do miss the handle length when try to get that extreme long distance cast. a longer handle does come in handy
