Flipping Stick (FSR) rods are designed specifically for flipping, but doubling nicely for other heavy-duty jig and worm applications. Flipping is a technical form of heavy-duty “finesse” fishing. We realize that is a contradictory statement, but when the fish are in locations where casting a lure is not an option due to heavy cover, or they won’t come out to chase a lure, you have to go in after them. Because you are so close to the fish, the presentation must be as quiet as possible. The length of a flipping stick allows the angler to “swing” soft plastics or jigs into or right next to heavy cover so that they enter the water softly. This allows a total vertical presentation so your lure drops straight to the bottom, unlike a lure that is cast and falls toward the angler, missing perimeter zones because they sink at an angle away from the cover. The test isn’t hooking fish, but rather getting those fish out of that same small space you just flipped your lure into. You need a rod that can move a fish quickly, with authority, before it has a chance to wrap you up in the cover.
These rods feature cork handles, with a straight 9” rear grip for added leverage, better balance and line control. The reel seat features blank-thru handle construction, with a trigger grip. The butt-section collapses into the handle for ease in storage.
