Duckett Fishing Micro Magic Trigger Rods
Duckett is my favorite bass fishing rod company for many reasons. First off is the blank of the rod. The blanks are so sensitive, I can often feel bites others cannot. I also love the sleek color line of these rods. Second, are the micro guides. These micro guides offer better casting distance, better casting accuracy, and better sensitivity. And lastly, the weight and feel. Duckett has the best, most balanced feeling rods you will find on the bass fishing market. Any reel you put on these rods feels like the perfect match. Boyd really outdid himself with these rods, and I am thankful I tried these rods.

An exceptional rod.
I fish a lot, and I have fished a lot for a long time. I catch big fish and have a lot of expensive casting rods and reels. I am really fussy about my rods. I have bought Shimano, St. Croix, Loomis, Bass Pros Johnny Morris Signiture ll. The ones I didn't like I sold to my friends. My favorite is the "XPS Extreme" w/ the cork Power Hump Handle @ 99.99 dollars. Much better than those expensive rods. I have 4 of them in different lengths and actions and 1 spinning outfit. If a rod doesn't have some kind of cork handle it's junk. The XPS rod is made of a 60 million modulus graphite and has a quality cork handle. But it fishes and handles so fine. All the other rods have a higher graphite modulus construction, but come on, who can count to 80 million anyway. The Duckett rod, has graphite made from "fresh resins" that is supose to be under 30 days old. How many million modulus is that, who cares. It also has a high quality cork handle. As you hold the rod, your hand cups around the reel, your fingers are touching the rod blank under the reel, that's the tickett. The micro guides help transfer the bite contact and vibrations down the line and rod to your fingers under the reel. This is what actually gives you the sensations of a hit. I fish only for big fish, Bass and Stripers, and I use mostly big live bait in deep water with very light or no weight. In 30 or 40 feet of water with another 50 feet of line out, you must have a very sensitive rod to feel when a really big fish sucks in your bait and closes it mouth on the line. Because really big fish just hold still while they're taking the bait. They don't always swim off with it. They didn't get to be big by being stupid and they don't have that kamakasi instint like smaller fish do. If you don't set the hook right away, or they feel weight on the bait, or drag on the line or something doesn't feel right with their mouthfull. They spit it out swim off and you never know it. I can feel all that with my Duckett rod. This one is the 6 ft 9in. medium heavy fast tip. The next one will be the 7 ft. heavy action. Beside all that the rod is beautiful. Match it with a Pflueger Patriarch 7.1 reel.
