Rod Models

Ben Parker Magnum Spoon XP91SP – 7’7”, 1-6 oz., 15-40#, XFast, XHeavy – $274.99

Primary Role: Nichols Lures Magnum Spoon

The BP Mag Spoon rod has a lighting fast tip perfect for working magnum spoons. The high modulus carbon blank lets you feel bites on the fall and the TENX reinforcement material ensures power in the blank without sacrificing feel.

**Due to the nature of the tip speed, we do not recommend flipping fish.

Ben Parker Swimbait XP94SW – 7’10”, ½ – 6 oz., 15 – 40#, XFast, XHeavy – $274.99

Primary Role: Paddle Tail Swimbaits

High modulus carbon with TENX Reinforcement helps ALX Rods answer the need for a paddletail specific swimbait rod. This rod gives outstanding feel and power all in a sub 6 oz. package.

**Due to the nature of the tip speed, we do not recommend flipping fish.

Ben Parker Crankbait XP93CBG – 7’9”, 3/8 – 1 oz., 8 – 20#, ModFast, MedHvy – $249.99

Primary Role: Crankbaits up to 20’

Built on a modern S-Glass and carbon composite blank, the BP Crankbait is perfectly paired with lipless and mid depth cranks thanks to the wonderfully smooth tip that won’t rip out a treble hook. This rod is not a buggy whip. The BP Crankbait also excels at spinnerbaits and bladed jigs thanks to the stout backend that drives a big hook home. All of this in a remarkably lightweight offering for a glass composite rod.

BP Hair Jig – 7’6”, 3/8 – 1 ¼ oz., 10 – 25#, Fast, MedHvy – $249.99

Primary Role: Wild Hair Jig

The Hair Jig requires the right blend of being able to set a stout heavy hook and the finesse to swim it realistically. You also need a mile long cast. Built with a blend of carbon fibers, this rod has a light enough tip for a distance cast with plenty of rear end. The length aids in casting distance. This is a favorite when paired with any type swimming jig as well.
