Here at Impulse Fishing we put extreme effort and time into every rod that we make. Every Impulse rod is designed and crafted with premium materials and components. We believe in quality craftsmanship and putting in the time to build an American made rod without cutting any corners.
We have spared no expense in creating the very best rod in its class. Our Impulse original series Gen 2 rods start off with an exceptionally light weight and sensitive blank that is made with a blend of high-intermediate modulus Toray graphite. Then we custom fit each WINN grip handle to fit perfectly on the blank. WINN grips offer unmatched “tacky” grip even when wet. We shorten all our reel seats to provide more access to the blank in front of the reel seat. We cap the end with a Fuji metalized plastic winding check.
We are very proud to be making these fishing rods right here in Magnolia, Texas! We appreciate our customers supporting an American company!
I love the new IMPULSE 7'3" Heavy/Extra Fast rods. I am a shallow water fisherman mostly and fish grass and cover a lot. I use this rod for Swimjigs and Frogs. I was using a different IMPULSE rod for this technique until I spoke with Lance and he suggested I try these and MAN was that a game changer for consistent hooksets and the Power to get the fish up and out of cover and grass. Everyone probably has their own "method" of fishing swimjigs and frogs...for my style these rods work perfectly! Thank you IMPULSE Rods!
Bought the 7'3 Heavy xtra fast for froggin and IT IS PHENOMENAL! Replaced my Dobyns and I couldn't be more satisfied. Very lightweight and balanced makes it easy working the frog with no fatigue and incredible hook up power. Thanks Impulse for the recommendation on the perfect frog rod.
I used my new 7"3" Heavy/Extra Fast Rods this last Friday. A buddy and I were fishing a private lake in Jacksboro, TX. Combined we landed over 60 bass! Most of them were between 3-6lbs. We had 5 over 6lbs and the largest was 8lbs. We were fishing primarily Swimjigs and Buss N Frogs. The topwater Frog bite was insane. The strikes were vicious and did I mention we had LOTS of aquatic vegetation to work through? The New rods REALLY made a difference to get the heads of those big ole bass up and on top of the grass. The larger fish pulled down into the grass and Have my IMPULSE rods a good workout. My buddy was fishing another brand and I let him fish(sample) one of my new rods and he loved it. He told me when he buys rods again he will be buying an IMPULSE after seeing how they performed under these conditions. My 4 new rods just expand my already large arsenal of amazing IMPULSE rods. I am an IMPULSE Lifer!
From the other reviews you can see this is definitely a versatile rod. But for me this is my dedicated frog rod! Couldnâ€™t agree more with the above reviews that it is absolutely the best frog rod Iâ€™ve ever used! I had Lance and the guys cut mine down to 6â€™10â€ because I feel Iâ€™m more accurate with shorter rods. The tip on this rod is absolutely perfect! It will cast smaller lighter frogs extreme distances and makes the walking action so much easier! The backbone on this rod is insane and allows you to get them out of any type of cover you could dream up! This is definitely one of my favorite rods as I can never get enough frog fishing! Thanks again Impulse!
Versatile, can be used in many applications, very sensitive, perfect balance,
My favorite rod in my arsenal. Super versatile and the action on it is amazing!
Froggin or Flippin this rod does it all. Love this thing!
