IMX 10' 1-3oz
September 8, 2014
At first glance I was a little suspect if the rod could handle big fish because of how light and thin the rod is. I have been fishing my IMX on and off the last 3 seasons in the back bays around my house and the ocean. It handled cocktail blues and keeper sized stripers very well and the rod felt like there was still more power left if I needed it. On one of my days off this past summer, some bigger blues, 8-12 lbers, starting blitzing. I landed 4 of them and I felt the rods true power, I could feel it bend to the bottom half of the rod for the reserve power I felt before. The rod also loads very easily and casts well throughout the 1-3oz range. 1 and 3 oz lures cut down on distance, but 2 1/4 to 2 3/8 felt like the sweet spot for maximum distance. Atomizers and SS little neck poppers would go about 100 to 125 yards. I also like the adjustable reel seat and after a few adjustments I found the sweet spot for my arm length and casting style. I love my IMX and recommend it to everyone.
