The Mag-Hitter is the "Dirty Harry" version of our original flipping stick, the Hitter. Designed for heavy weights and jungle warfare, our design team created a perfectly balanced flipper with all day comfort. The parabolic, heavy action blank will load evenly during the fight without tearing a big hole at the hook location, but also remain loaded when your fish clears cover and runs towards the boat. The Mag-Hitter is Alpha's solution to those punching and flipping heavy cover situations.
Flipping Rod Blank: The business end of the Mag-Hitter is a sensitive, yet durable 7'11" power house blank. The tip is light enough to feel a pressure bite without pulling the bait away from your big-mouthed bass, but strong enough to handle heavier punch weights. The parabolic blank will increase your hook-to-landing percentage as it prevents the slack-line situation when a fish clears heavy cover.
Flipping Rod Components: To ensure ultimate performance, the Alpha Mag-Hitter is equipped with Alps SS316 Micro Guides for efficient casting and retrieving. The "go-to" Fuji ECSM reel seat has been the favorite with anglers due its comfortable fit and rod control.

All these characteristics setup the Mag-Hitter as a must have bass hauling machine. If you can't find giants roaming around the outside of the cover, there's only other place they can be...
