Even though a lot of successful anglers love our Crankbait Series rods, there are still a bunch of plug pitchers out there that have asked for an even softer version. For those anglers, we developed our new Deep Flex (DF) crankbait rods. They are a totally new design with a much slower taper and softer flex. They are incredibly light and provide unbelievable sensitivity and lure control. The softer flex improves the lureís action, allowing it to work its way over or around the cover the way it was designed to which is far more attractive to the fish. When a bass eats a crankbait, they actually suck the lure in by flushing a large amount of water through their gills, bringing the lure along with it. Rods that are too stiff can actually pull the bait away from the bass, resulting in short strikes, poor hook-ups and missed fish. Another great advantage of the Deep Flex Series is that the softer action is very forgiving when the fish runs or jumps so you are less apt to lose them. Now itís time to get excited. Crankbait anglers have never had it so good!
