Ultra-lite fishing is a heck of a lot of fun. Techniques vary from small jigs or bait to micro-sized crankbaits and tiny spinners. Matching rods to such a variety of uses is a challenge, but not impossible. Our Classic trout & panfish (SR) rods are designed primarily for small freshwater species, but as anglers will, they've discovered a multitude of different applications for these light-duty rods including bass fishing with small lures & soft plastics, shad fishing with darts and tiny jigs, bonefish and seatrout fishing on the flats with small grubs and jigs. The rods we've put into this series have moderate to fast tapers with ultra-light to medium power ratings. They are designed to protect light line, but don't let that fool you. They are remarkably strong and can handle surprisingly big fish. We offer a number of options in levels of graphite performance, length, powers and actions. Some anglers prefer a short rod while others prefer a longer rod, depending on the technique. It all depends on what you look for in a light-duty spinning rod. Whatever your choice, we're confident we've got all the bases covered... ENJOY!
