For as long as I can remember the
Fooler has been one of my most popular rods. There's something
about its balance, length and action that people like. The FXH
takes those qualities and beefs them up to cope with casting larger
lures. I find it ideally suited to working walk-the-dog surface
lures and sub-surface gliders. It's a mean Burt rod too!
The blank is woven carbon and is
slimmer than might be expected. Great performance and good looks
FXH ROD SPECIFICATIONS
To complement the British made carbon
blanks genuine Fuji components are used throughout. BMNAG Alconite
rings have been selected for their semi-low profile, light weight,
and cost effective performance.
These rings feature the same "wraparound"
frame as on the MNSG rings fitted to Axioms which helps protect
the Alconite inner from accidental damage. To give the rods a
distinctive look the rings are whipped with purple thread tipped
with a metallic paler purple to complement the smooth-ground,
woven, matt finish carbon blank. A stainless steel hook keeper
is fitted as standard.
The standard handle comprises a black
winding check in front of the three inch flared cork foregrip,
slim contoured cork and black rubber Fuji butt cap.
There are no garish graphics on these
rods, just a few hand lettered words in white ink. As with all
my rods I build to order only allowing for customisation options
to be accommodated
All stated casting
weights are simply a guide to a rod's capabilities.
