Musky anglers to get first look at Daiwa Prorex XT
More than 1,000 anglers gathered for the 37th annual National Musky Open in the US will be among the first to check out Daiwa’s new Prorex XT rod series this weekend.
This new line-up of four musky casting rods includes a one-piece heavy-power 7’ 6” model alongside three telescoping rods that include a 8’6” heavy action and two 8’6” and 9’ 5” extra-heavy action rods.
“The telescoping feature on the 8’6” and 9’ Prorex XT rods – and their $99.99 price tag – put them in a category not found in the musky tackle world,” said Brad Olson who handles Daiwa’s sales efforts with tackle shops throughout Wisconsin. “Those days of short pool stick rods are long gone once anglers realised the advantages longer rod provides for figure 8’s and casting bigger lures to cover more water. But until now with these new Prorex XT, anglers only had the choice of rods $250 and higher that could provide them with the telescoping feature.”
With durable graphite composite blanks, a Carbide tip top guide to go along with the SeaGuide SLRAG guide chain, and all-day-casting comfort from natural cork grips, the Prorex XT musky rods also feature a special hook keeper for big swimbaits like Daiwa’s large profile Prorex Bessie.
“They will match up well with Daiwa’s higher-end, large line capacity casting reels including the Lexa and Prorex TW 300 and 400 size low-profile reels, and also the Millionaire Classic 300 size round reel to provide those just starting on their hunt for muskies an ideal rod and reel set-up for under $200 (USD),” added Olson.
