Put years of experience in rod building into your hands with the Scheels Outfitters Xtreme Trolling Series rod. Like all the Scheels Outfitters rods it features the right combination of strength and sensitivity to make your day on the water a success. Features:
High Modulus IM-7 Graphite
Evolve Aluminum Oxide Guides
Golf Grip Style handle for better feel in your hands
Telescoping rod is approximately 2 ft. shorter in the compact position than when fully extended
I love the rod, I use it for lead core line pulling cranks. It has a nice back bone with a soft tip so you can see your crank working. If there's any down fall would be the long handle wish it was a little shorter.
I bought the 14" MH Mod and I use them for leadcore trolling crankbaits. They are awesome! Even at 14' you can feel the wobble of the crankbait at the end of the handle. They perform great when fighting a fish.

Love the rod...but went to purchase another and scheels raised the shipping cost so high im going else where to get another
Thank you for your review. We apologize, due to the size of this product, we did need to add a shipping charge. However if you pick up in store (should your store have this available) there is no shipping charge! Hope this helps. Have a great day! -Bailey B

Great Lead Core Trolling Rod, Just one problem.
If you are serious about trolling lead core this is probably the best rod on the market. I bought a 12 foot rod and the rod has a soft tip and lots of back bone. The soft tip allows anglers to see the action of the lure and is forgiving enough to prevent fish from throwing the hook. A lot of long rods are either too soft or two stiff. I used to use a fiberglass rod that resembled a broom stick instead of a fishing rod. The problem with this rod is you are buying a 12 foot rod for a reason, and 18 inches of the 12 foot rod don't need to be in the boat. I would rather see the same rod with a shorter base. If you use the rocket launcher rod tubes, this is a great way to go. Unfortunately, I do not trust that type of rod holder so for now I am left putting up with what I got.
By the way, If you got a black boat like I do, the blue and black finish on this rod really looks pretty sweet with it!!!
Best leadcore trolling rods on the market. Very durable, great rod tip action (to see lure vibration to know if the crank is fouled), and tons of backbone to support the extra weight of the leadcore line.
Rods came packed to perfection with bubble wrap and cardboard tubing. The Rods were better than expected and handles are perfect for any reel. Previous versions were "loose fitting" but that seems to be corrected. I expect the rods to last a few seasons and look forward to fishing with them, as I have gotten 2 seasons out of the previous model.
