806 HSB Swimbait Rod
Took the rod out for the 1st trip today...Could not believe how comfortable it was to cast for a 8' rod...It will launch a 8" Hudd and feels perfectly balanced on the retrieve. Really nice job on designing this rod.
Swimbaits and Umbrella rig
I don't throw a lot of swimbaits or umbrella rigs but when I do this rod is a dream to throw them on. Casting large 8-12" swimbaits or heavy umbrella rigs is easy with this rods fast tip action. The rod has excellent balance which makes for less fatigue when throwing these heavy baits all day long. The long grip is perfect for tucking it under my shoulder on the retrieve. The length of the rod helps with a good sweeping hook set that takes up a lot of line when your turn your body.
The Best Trebble Hook Swimbait Rod
The 806 HSB is hands down my favorite rod for 1-5 ounce, treble hook swimbaits. The 806 has the most parabolic action of all the Champion swimbait rods and excels with hard body swim bait with treble hooks because it cushions the runs of big fish. This is not the prime choice for top hook baits like Huddlestons. It shines on 6"-9" Bull Shads, 6"-8" Triple Trouts, and others in that size range.
