I have a wide assortment of rods in the rod box ranging from Megabass, St Croix, G Loomis, and more. This is by far the lightest and most sensitive rod in my arsenal. I didn’t think the fishing industry offered a better rod at a reasonable price than a St Croix Avid X, but Jewel has something special. If you’re looking for a high quality component rod, handmade in The USA give them a shot. You’ll be 100% satisfied.
I purchased the Wart/Crawler rod a few months ago, and I must say that it has lived up to it's name. This rod has exceptional sensitivity for both my Wiggle Warts and Rock Crawlers. As far as strength goes, I accidentally foul hooked a 15 pound carp on a Wiggle Wart and the rod handled it well. It is definitely a worthwhile addition to your arsenal and has stood up next to my Falcons and St. Croix's.
