In the 1960's, Browning pioneered the development of fiberglass rods... and in so doing, created a legend. Crafted of proprietary Hi-Density tubular fiberglass, a Browning® Fishing SilaFlex Trigger Rod offered the most advanced technology of the day--the ideal blend of light weight, strength, flexibility and sensitivity. Today's SilaFlex is true to the original (if you've owned one, your hand hasn't forgotten the feel!). Same quality blanks, same classic actions, upgraded with hard aluminum oxide guides, premium cork handles and lightweight graphite reel seats for exceptional handling all around.

crankin the rod worked great with crankbaits..cant wait to try spinnerbaits!! August 29, 2012
Holds Up Under Pressure This Wonderful, Classic, strong, durable Fiberglass rod has stood up to the test, of 8, 8+ pound bass, and countless #4 #3 #2 and many other fish. It has a great action for tiring out a good size fish. great for the value, wouldn't have it any other way. July 29, 2012
Awesome crank bait rod This rod makes for a great crank bait rod. It has a nice parabolic action for cranks. It is worth every penny i paid for it. I would personally like this rod better than the KVD rod for crank baits. If you want a better rod get the BPS crankin stick. June 19, 2012
Browning rod This rod is what it is advertised to be and nothing more. It has a nice parabolic action. The fiberglass construction means I can keep casting crankbaits in November. A hook holder would be a nice touch. May 7, 2012

Lure weight rating

Details: 
I was wondering if the lure ratings for this rod were a typo. It says the medium action silaflex TRIGGER rods are capable of casting 1/18 oz lures but the silaflex medium action SPINNING rods say the lightest lure capable of casting is 1/8.

A: 
I belief this is a typo. 1/8 oz with a good light weight spinning or spin cast reel,but 1/18 oz I doubt it, but I could be wrong. I wouldn't purchase it with the intent of throwing something that small. I don't know that I've ever seen a 1/18th oz lure listed (Jig head). 1/16 but not 1/18th.

A: 
The material, graphite or fiberglass, isn't important. The important thing to me is what you want the rod to do. When I fish worms or jigs I usually want a stiff rod so I can set the hook and pull the hook through the plastic or weedguard. With crankbaits or other lures moving through the water, I want a more flexible rod that gives the fish time to mouth the lure. Graphite rods are usually stiffer than fiberglass rods so I have one of each that I use for the lure of choice. I hope this helps.

A: 
I think in my case that I find that the glass rod has a true moderate action which allows casting light baits longer yet the rod still has good hooksetting power. Graphite rods that claim to be moderate are still too stiff on the top third of the rod.

fiberglass, gives you more time when the fish stike you spinnerbait,buzz bait and chankbait to set the hook before you pull it away from him. more hookups. graphite you fill the fish alot of the time before he has the bait good and pull it away.

A: 
Fiberglass tends to be softer in action for rods of equal power ratings. The rod will arc more quickly and further down the rod blank when hooking and fighting fish. I use fiberglass for lighter spinner baits and topwater to allow a striking fish to swallow the bait before the rod is fully loaded up.

A: 
Generally fiberglass blanks are used specifically for ultralite applications and crankbait fishing. Fiberglass blanks have a softer action than graphite. This is an advantage when fishing crankbaits for multiple reasons. The moderate action can improve casting distance on lighter crankbaits, the decreased sensitivity of fiberglass has less of a dampening effect on deep diver crankbait action and the softer tip helps prevent ripping the treble hooks of a crankbait out of the fish's mouth on the hookset.

A: 
Many times using a graphite rod with a crank bait, you feel the fish when it bites so you set the hook and frequently pull it out of the fishes mouth. The fiberglass rod will flex so you don't feel the fish right when it bites. This delay allows the fish to the bait deeper into its mouth, where multiple trebles will hook it. This delay gets me more hookups that the bass don't throw if they jump.

A: 
Graphite rods do not have the tensile strength that a fiberglass rod will have. They generally are more expensive and weigh less. Graphite is a good choice for a rod that you will be casting all day, as to where a fiberglass rod will be best for moderate casting, trolling, or bottom fishing. Some companies are beginning to produce a graphite and fiberglass hybrid rod that seems to give you the best of both worlds.

A: 
It has more flex, giving a crankbait more action and tires the fishermans arm a lot less than graphite. However, if you were jigging a worm or tube the better choice would be graphite, since it would be more sensitive. My 2 cents!

A: 
For me and the fishing I do where I do it, fibergalss is #1 for crankbait fishing!!!

I find the lighter/faster tips and the more flexible backbone strength of fiberglass rods just makes the lure run better. As well as make hook setting and retreival much more effecient and risk-free (fiberglass tends not to explode as graphite often can under pressure).

I am not against graphite rods - I own and use several.

I mostly fish bass and pickerel in fast moving, very clear (due to Zebra Mussels) Canadian rivers. You simply can't beat the performance and flexibilty of fiberglass in those conditions. Especially for Smallmouth Bass.

A: 
alot of it is personal preferance. however a glass rod like these silaflexs are great for use on crankbaits and poppers. the reason being is the flex, when your rod flexs during retrieve the rod is allowing the lure to get its most action. on poppers they keep the bait from skipping on top of the water and actually allow the popping to occur. when you set the hook on a fish the flex of the rod keeps you from ripping the hook out. when you set the hook the rod flexs slightly more because the bait is in motion, when you set the hook with a stiff rod the rod with the set motion will pull the hooks out of the fishes mouth. even kvd fishes with a glass rod when he is cranking. but you are talking $40 compared to $90- 120. this rod is well worth it. use the savings to get more lures.
