Custom rod commission for Doug Parker
This rod will be built on a MHX L843 Blank [ *Rod Specifications 7'0" | 10-17 lb. | 1/4 - 1 1/8 oz. | Mod-Fast Action | Medium Power | 1 Piece | 5.5 Tip | 0.535 Butt ].
The L843 rod blank features a 7'0" length, a strategic mod/fast action and steps up to a medium power to produce an excellent rod performance, especially in light saltwater and inshore fishing applications. Whether using live bait, popping corks, swim baits, top water, or even twitch baits, this blank builds the fishing rod ready to catch all sorts of saltwater species!
About MHX Light Saltwater Blanks
This series was developed to perform flawlessly in many inshore and nearshore saltwater applications, but don’t overlook this series of rod blanks when taking on heavy duty freshwater fishing. Powerful, yet lightweight, these durable, high-grade graphite blanks are very capable of putting the pressure on multiple species of large fish, regardless of the type of water you are fishing in.
Starting from the butt of the rod, you find a split grip configuration with premium cork and custom down locking reel seat and palm swell for ergonomically advanced comfort.
in the split a custom redfish pattern inlay gives this rod a unique look while displaying a target species it is built for!
Custom fore grip provides finger slot so you can feel every subtle vibration of the rod blank telegraphing whats happening that you can’t see under the water!
- All-day comfort
- Supreme control
- Longer, more accurate casting
- Control when fighting big fish
Continuing to the rod tip, you’ll find American Tackle’s award winning Microwave Guide System with deluxe hook keeper and tangle free tip top!
MicroWave™ Line Control System
Introducing the MicroWave Guide System by the American Tackle Company. Inventor Doug Hannon also known as “The Bass Professor” partnered with American Tackle to conceive, design and manufacture the perfect “line control” system for spinning rods.
The system addresses coiling-memory issues with monofilament but it’s ideal for braided lines and really something that has to be felt and seen to be believed. It provides noticeable advantages that standard guide trains cannot by combining science, practical application and custom rod building principles. Many long hours of theory, design & physical testing has resulted in possibly the most dynamic guide train developments to date.
Only sold as complete sets
Set includes 1 stripper guide, 1 transition guide & 7 running guides (9 total based on a 7’ spinning rod, additional running guide available for longer rods). Also includes suggested layout measurements.
Increased Casting Distance. Achieved by capturing and directing energy into forward motion maintaining line speed.
Reduction in Fatigue. Less force is required for casting using increased line speed because the blank will load and recover more naturally without inhibition from increased line vibration.
Increased Casting Accuracy. Less force is required for casting using increased line speed because the blank will load and recover more naturally without inhibition from increased line vibration.
Increased Lure Range of Rod. Using controlled energy, lighter & heavier lure weights can be used without rod blank materials compensating for lost efficiency.
Wind Knot Tangling Elimination. Converts "pushing line energy" through a guide ring into "pulling line energy" preventing line from traveling beyond the larger stripper guide ring not allowing it to override the frame creating wrapping or knot formation. "And if that isn’t enough we utilize our brand new Snagless running guides out to the tip". "Why use a stripping guide that's tangle free when you can use a guide that all but eliminates tangles and then employs snagless running guides for added insurance"
All components were measured to balance perfectly with a 3000-4000 series reel. Wether inshore saltwater fishing or reeling in lunker largemouth this rod is designed to thrill!
