Dear ark rod's very nice rod good balance , sensitive, light , good.backbone , nice parabolic bend when a fish is on . Very comfortable reel seat as a matter of fact caught a nice small mouth yesterday on my hover rig and the rod handled that fish no problem I would say that smallie was maybe two and a half pounds . But nice rod build guys for the price point I think the public is getting a really nice rod oh I know I mentioned it but these rods have a serious backbone so don't be afraid to set the wood to these bass because ark rod's have the power to handled . I've been using ark rod's for yrs and yrs never had a single problem with any of there guides, handles, rods breaking none of that just real good quality . Guys even if you can only afford the Cobb series that has a forty ton blank I mean you can't go wrong just excellent customer service they stand behind there products . If you buy a ark fishing rod you won't be disappointed . Sincerely your fellow angler Mike .
The 71MXS Invoker Pro is my go to spinning rod whether a Wacky rig or a Shakyhead it's up for the challenge. Sensitive for these techniques and enough backbone to throw a floating worm around cover.
I have a bunch of various Ark model rods from Reinforcers to Lancer Pros and all have exceeded my expectations. Light, balanced and get fish in the boat!
This line has a perfect model for every technique. Very strong and sensitive 40T graphite. Especially love the spinning reel seats on these... tighten behind the reel and leave plenty of direct blank contact.
I bought this rod 6-30-22. Fished with it about every weekend, the rod has great feeling, light. Today while replacing my floro leader I pulled a little bit of line off the reel with the drag and the rod snapped into 3 pieces. Not sure why it happened it’s only 6lb test line on it and the drag was very loose, I wasn’t even pulling downwards very little bend in the rod when it happened. I plan on going to the store I bought the rod from and see about getting a replacement.
