Bender Slow-Jig Rod
This product is currently sold out.
The massive popularity of slow jigs - Sliders in particular - has spawned a corresponding demand for specialized slow-jig rods. ‘The Bender’ is the result of this demand, and it’s already gained an enthusiastic following, due in part to several of the busier Auckland charter boats choosing to have them on board as their lure-fishing arsenal’s main weapons.
- A genuine Fuji trigger-grip reel seat (which also incorporates the minimalist fore-grip)
- 12 good quality Seaguides plus tip
- A solid EVA butt grip to provide grip comfort and avoid potential rod-holder damage
- A small hook holder positioned out the way in front of the fore-grip
On-the-water tips: This 1.9m overhead rod is designed to get the best from slow-jigs, with the rod’s light S-glass tip (a high-tech material also used to make naval helicopter rotor blades) integrated into the graphite blank. This helps to absorb the sudden bumps and surges made by big fish, so the hooks are less likely to rip out. The whippy action also serves to slow and smooth anglers’ movements so the various slow-jigs’ assist-rigged squid/tentacles waft more seductively around, as they are designed to do. But don’t be fooled - yes, you might be having a ball as the rod whips right over to the fish charging around below, but the Powerflex Bender still gets the job done, the PE 1-2 capabilities resulting in surprisingly large fish being brought to the boat. Effective and a blast to fish with!
