I had the pleasure of being asked to try out a prototype rod designed for dock shooting from MajorCraft rods USA dealer Carlos Rivera
As soon as I picked it up I knew it was something special. The Ergo Fuji hand grip fit my hand perfectly and at less than 4 ounces it was light as a feather. I could not wait to pair it with one of my coveted Pflueger President Limited Editions reels.
The rod is a SpeedStyle NANO 6’4”, sss-64ul Ultra Lite, lures 1/32 - 1/4, line 2-8 lb. with Fuji Ergo powergrip handle and the new Fuji K frame concept guides.
But I knew the proof would be in the on water performance. I was not disappointed. First time I drew the lure back the ultra lite tip at first did not seem like it would have sufficient power but as I pulled past my grip the power in the backbone took over and the lure was propelled 40 ft to the “dark” side! AND it had the backbone to flip a 12 incher in the boat!
Bottom line. I have now used the rod on three trips, 50 plus Crappie, and it has performed flawlessly. My dock shooting skills have improved tremendously because of the quality of this rod. It is a game changer for me.
