  • Feather-light 60-million-modulus Powerwall™ IM9 graphite blank
  • Diamond weave carbon fiber wrapped butt section
  • Fuji® aluminum oxide guides
  • Durable clear-coat finish
  • Ultra-premium-grade cork grips
  • PowerHump® handle
  • Full-contact, Soft Touch reel seat
  • Available in travel rod model
Why call them Extreme? The word "Extreme" is somewhat overused these days, so with these rods, we’ve tried to stay true to the official definition, which is (according to Webster's Dictionary) "exceeding the ordinary, usual, or expected." We have packed every possible ultra-high-end feature into the strongest, most profoundly sensitive package, and still kept your investment under $100!

Here's what you get: We start out with an immensely powerful yet feather-light 60-million-modulus Powerwall IM9 graphite blank, then wrap the butt section with a new diamond weave carbon fiber to enhance lifting power. We top the blank with virtually frictionless, mirror-polished Fuji aluminum oxide guides, and we finish the blank with the most durable clear-coat available. The grips are turned from ultra-premium-grade cork, with our exclusive PowerHump handle to aid in balance and enhance fish-turning power. The full-contact, Soft Touch reel seat puts your fingers directly on the blank so you can feel even the softest bite. The result is a fishing rod that is farthest removed from the ordinary, that is anything but the usual suspect, and that far exceeds what you expect from a rod at this price point. By definition, these rods truly are extreme! Three piece travel rods include cordura covered travel case and nylon rod sock.

PowerHump Handles:
Our specially contoured, premium cork handle design gives you enhanced leverage and an increased sense of confidence during the battle!

Fuji Aluminum Oxide Guides:
Polished to a mirror-like, friction-free finish. Extremely durable; precisely spaced for perfect line flow.

Full Contact Soft Touch Reel Seat:
Lightweight, rock-solid reel seat locks your reel in place, and the blank-thru construction puts your fingers in direct contact with the blank for the utmost vibration transmission.
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 42 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by The proof is in the catching I used my 7'6" Heavy Extreme flipping stick to catch the 7.21 pound fish in my picture. While the Extreme isn't the lightest rod on the market it is a solid performer and had all the backbone I needed to pull this big girl from the hydrilla on Lake Seminole. March 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome rod great value!!! I bought one of these rods used it one season now I have 3!! You can't beat the value this rod has a awesome cork grip, nice hook keeper, the Fiji guides cast like glass, and it has a nice soft tip with great action. I've done a lot of research and this is the best rod in the $100 price range by far. I pair it with the bass pro extreme bait-casting reel; great combo! January 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing rod I absolutely love the Extreme rods. I own them in both spinning and casting. These rods are hands down the best rod for your dollar out there. I bought my first Extreme rod 15 years ago, and I'm still buying them today. November 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great rod This is one of the best pieces of equipment that I own, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for quality equipment without breaking the bank. July 23, 2013

Staff Answer
A: 
The handle style only refers to the grip and the length of the handle. The rods that are telescopic are marked with TELE at the end of the model.

Staff Answer
A: 
No these handles are not telescoping.

Absolutely - I use braid exclusively and have had no issues. Just make sure you spool with a good size diameter line to avoid "dig in".

Ideal for pitching?

Details: 
I don't do flipping so I thought the 6'10 MH XF setup would be perfect for a pitching rod. Any thoughts?

A: 
The 6'10" rod is good for pitching but I personally like the 7'10" rod better, even though it is a longer rod I seem to have better control and you get the added leverage.

I am no expert by any stretch, but it sounds like a good choice to me. I went with a 7ft. heavy to frog, pitch and flip on occasion.

A: 
I prefer a 7 foot MH with a fast tip but lots of my friends use 6'6" and 6'10" rods for pitching. Use a high quality reel that is matched in weight and balance for best results.

a full handle rod has less sensative feel, this rod is desinged for that feature, if you want a full handle go buy a tourney special rod i too cast with both hands but i bought the 7-4 ft. rod with the longer handle. good luck and great fishing bud.

I have a Pro Qualifier rod and reel and really love it and am thinking of getting another combo but see that they don't have them listed anymore. Is this stepping up to be the replacement for that rod?
