My prefer rating for Ark reinforcement rod, I came from a long line usage of Gloomis IMX, GLX, NRX and Conquest rod. The ARK rod has a bit of all these feel.
-Style: much like Conquest
-Feel: well balance, but cork seems a bit cheezy especially the made in China marking on it. Reel seat trigger is okay
-Power of hook set: isn't too bad, GLX frel of hook set
-Sensitivity: IMX, not compared to the higher rod. I can't really feel the connect of my jigs I casted at the same location using my Gloomis rod also and the GLX, NRX and Conquest beats it by a mile of sensitivity.
- Overall: 4/5 great rod, but if you're sensitivity type of person who wants to feel every contact on the bottom this may not be the rod
Been fishing another rod company since 2010 just order 2 Ark Reinforcer rods over Thanksgiving and I must say I am very impressed.
The craftsmanship is top shelf and the lightness and action is to me the best I’ve fished period.
I will be switching all my rods out to the Reinforcer series. Very satisfied and you will be too!
De las mejores cañas en cuanto a sensibilidad y ligereza q probé nunca
Replaced my Shimano Exprides with the reinforcer rods, 9 on the boat. Incredible casting and power.
Extremely comfortable in the hand. All Daiwa Steez and Zillion reels. 100%!
