I have the century for jerk sticking and it’s awesome. I fish in Alabama so I throw a jerk bait a lot. This rod has landed some beasts. You have to check them out. With a plus one On 10# test I can get it about 14 feet deep. When one smokes it, it loads up and buries those hooks without pulling the bait.
I will be adding more of these to my arsenal for flat sided cranks and top waters. Hard to beat for the price.
I ordered the “Walking Stick”, it’s an awesome rod for top water treble hook baits. The “regular action” is perfect for helping keep the fish pinned. Not to mention, this rod loads up and cast a mile!
Love this rod just fished a great tournament with it and it held up the bigger fish in this lakes water! I’m very satisfied with this purchase and will continue support this company with many more.
I am a hobbyist rod builder(8yrs).I fish my own gear.Ive had all the other manufacturers blanks/rods and there are some really nice pre-made rods available these days.Alot stand behind there products and some(crickets)...I watched a gentleman on you tube fish these rods and they come highly recommended also a Randall Tharp mlf fan.So I've tried 3 Ark rods so far all have exceeded price point/fish ability just rock solid good build quality especially for price point.Well I had to use customer service nothing to do with rod failure just a general question.The response was immediate and the most professional/kind company I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with.Excellent rods/Excellent service.I do not usually recommend any manufacturers products....these folks and rods are wonderful.God bless and thankyou
After 3 full days of using these two rods almost exclusively, I am very pleased. They performed great for the applications they are named for. If I had any small complaint it’s the large rod butt. I know this is for balance but I’d like to see it a bit smaller. Excellent rod at an even better price point. Thanks.
