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.
