High sensitivity is a must for a soft plastic rod. The "Scouts" are an extremely sensitive rod conducting even the lightest of strikes through to the angler’s hand. Fast and stiff blanks are especially suitable for fishing soft plastics in flowing water. The shorter models in this rod range will also work well as crank bait rods. All SCOUTS feature reinforced butt and middle sections delivering plenty of muscle when you need to pull hooked fish up and away from snags.
