There`s a unique action required with the ShakyHead technique. It`s subtle but it makes a difference. All of G. Loomis` ShakyHead rods are designed with a mid-tip flex so you can work the bait properly and still react quickly when the fish bites. This two-power ShakyHead rod is made for fishing in deeper water where you need slightly heavier line to keep fish out of the brush. It`s deceptive in its power and thanks to NRX is so light and insanely sensitive you won`t believe it. If you want the ultimate in a finesse fishing rod look no further. You`re covered.
