My best friend Tim and I have spent years adventuring in search of fish all over PA and elsewhere. He’s been a loyal customer of mine and has a tendency to push his rods to the brink. After owning the Flagship ESS egg rod and a heavier rod for fishing jigs and lures for salmon, he wanted something in between.
The XST1141-2 was in order to make this a reality. Using Batson factory cork and ALPS reel seat, up to the KLSG guides, this rod has a serious flare to it. Tim wanted a bright rod with no metallic, so blaze orange and white were chosen to give it that extra eye appeal. This rod has already landed hundreds of fish and will continue to do as long as it’s in 1 (two) pieces.
