When the fish have lockjaw and you really have to work for every bite, this is your rod. We took our popular CarbonLite™ Original Trigger Rod and shot its sensitivity right through the roof! We've replaced the original guideset with extreme-high tech Pac Bay micro guides--11 perfectly-calibrated, stainless steel guides plus tiptop, all with hard Hialoy inserts. These tiny guides precisely focus the flow of your line, eliminating slap and greatly increasing vibration transmission. And with all possible excess weight trimmed away, you get an almost superhuman sense of feel. So if that fish so much as breathes on your bait ... Give it a try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MGySgtO My return to a Baitcast combo
I haven't used a Baitcast rod and reel for at least 25 years. My recent purchase of the BASS techniques DVD collection gave me reason to give it a try. I paired this BSP, CarbonLite, Micro Guide trigger with the Pro Qualifier reel and I'm not yet an expert by any means, but the feel and sensitivity of this combo has made a believer of me. I was pleased and surprised at the distance I was able to cast after just two tries. The bite has been off a bit here of late and I haven't had anything over two pounds to get a feel how much back bone the rod has. So far, this rod has done everything I asked of it and it helped a novice look like I knew what I was doing. Very pleased with the action and have already recommended this combo to a couple of friends. It's a winner in my book.

1st trip I liked the lightweight feel of this Carbonlite combo. 2nd trip the rod snapped into two pieces on the first cast. I've got three TFO (Temple Fork Outfitters) rods designed by Gary Loomis (along with two dozen other misc rods) I guess I'll be getting another TFO.

by robobrew MY GAME CHANGER
I bought this rod and another carbon lite rod. Now I've ordered another one from BASS PRO. I caught and released this Large Mouth with this rod paired with my BASS PRO Carbon Lite Reel. It bent more than what I thought was possible without breaking on this catch. This rod enabled me to cast so much farther then I ever had before. I had no way to weigh this bass but it measured close to 24 inches. I now call this MY GAME CHANGER and it really is.
Caught this bass with BASS PRO's THE EGG crank bait lure.
Thank You, BASS PRO SHOP

Great Sensitivity for light bite recognition, also more than adequate backbone for immediate movement of bass out of crowded and deep structure!! Great product for the price. Excellent casting distance even with 15lb and above fluorocarbon line.
