7'6 is an amazing flipping stick,I used a 7'3 for the weight difference,this rod is unbelievably light and strong. The 7'3 mag medium heavies are incredibly strong especially in florida grass ! Very versatile as well,amazing big worm and jig rod . The 7'4 medium heavies are perfect for swim jigs,chatter baits and smaller worms ! I own over 25 Ark rods of all varieties and this Limited Invoker series is by far some of the best made light weight,versatile rods I have found !!!!! If you are looking for a high end rod at a medium budget price you can't go wrong . Did I mention full cork grips . Amazing
I originally bought one of these rods in 7'6 for Carolina rig fishing. I have since purchased two 7' MHXF and a 7'4 MH. I absolutely enjoy fishing with these rods. They are sensitive, lightweight, and have an excellent grip design. I have been fishing for 30+ years and these are my favorite rods to date.
Lake Okeechobee is my home lake and I fish several tournament trails. I’ve exclusively used G-Loomis rods since the mid 80’s and use to build my own rods back when I was able to get their blanks. The cost of rods has skyrocketed without the advancement of workmanship and materials. Every now and again throughout the years, I would sample different rods from top manufacturers, but nothing compared even close to Loomis, except St. Croix.
Gradually, I have been moving away from Loomis due to their ridiculous price. The ARK line of rods have now become my replacements. I’ve used the Invoker pro and essence series. These rods are strong, built with quality components and hold up to abuse from tournament fishing. ARK rods are very sensitive and more than capable of pulling studs out of the Lake Okeechobee grass/mats. The quality of rod you get from ARK far exceeds its price and No longer am I paying for a rod whose price point exceeds its quality.
These rods are lightweight, sensitive and it's clear that materials used in these rods are top tier. The metal card that comes with each rod is a nice touch as well as the rod sleve that has the details of the rod type printed on it. Well done and would reccommend to anyone. (I bought 3 to start and 4 more the next week!) Get them while you can.
