This Rod of the Month is affectionally named the SlasherLITE. A lighter version of our infamous Slasher, the Lite edition was built for the smaller jerkbaits and crankbaits. It excels in tossing those 1/4oz - 3/8oz baits, like balsa crankbaits, that historically are throwing on spinning tackle.
Tested for the last two years by our prostaff, the results were just too good to keep secret. With the advent of Forward Facing Sonar, smaller jerkbaits are utilized around shallow cover and docks. The ability to thrown them accurately is a necessity, and usually easier with a baitcaster... like the SlasherLITE.
Blank: Unlike it's big brother, the SlasherLITE is built with a hybrid blend of S-Glass and graphite. The glass is necessary for that forgiving parabolic action, while the graphite aids in bait manipulation. The unsanded finish gives the LITE a glossy ribbed look, much like our Chatterbound. This blank is a dream to use all day, with great sensitivity and a forgiving recovery rate for the smallest treble hooks.
Components: Designed to be used all day, the SlasherLITE employs a Fuji ECSM graphite reel seat for ultimate control. The guide train is composed of TiForged SS316 stainless, semi-micro guides (Size 5), which reduce mass on the business end of the rod. Less mass creates a light and responsive tip section perfect for slashing and walking your favorite tournament winning baits.
