We have spared no expense in creating the very best rod in its class. Our Impulse Original Series Rods start off with a very light weight and sensitive blank that is made with a blend of high-intermediate modulus Toray graphite. Then we custom fit each and every high density EVA foam handle to fit perfectly. EVA is proven to hold up better and look better over the duration of the life of the rod. We are proud to use Fuji components and guides which have proven themselves time and time again to be the best in the industry.
Casting rods feature a Fuji ECS exposed trigger reel seat. we cut down 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 and finally an upgraded gloss black hood. The guides on these rods are, you guessed it. Fuji tangle free stainless steel frames with Alconite inserts. These guides are dependable and durable. The guide train is slightly larger than a standard micro guide rod, allowing larger mono or flouro as well as leader knots to pass through with ease. We are very proud to be making these fishing rods right here in Magnolia, Texas! And we appreciate our customers supporting an American company!
K-Series guide trains of all kinds have a few things in common. The specialized KB Guide, for example, is used as the choke point guide, mid-section and running guide in every K-Series guide train on the Impulse Original Series.
Documented high stress in mid-rod areas led Fuji to develop the big-footed KB "belly" guide. It is indispensable in taming torque stresses in the mid-rod section of casting rods.
KW Double-Foot guides are part of Fuji’s flagship K-Series guide selection, now the most complete and advanced guide “family” in the Fuji arsenal. Impulse Rods uses K-Series guides for their tangle-free operation, incredible frame strength, superb ring retention and striking good looks. Using K-Series frames, from ultra-light high frame strippers K-Series includes products for both casting or spinning 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!
