The Impulse Difference

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.

WINN grip handles

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.

Running guides

  • Seaguide ONEGUIDE series single-foot guides for spinning and casting rods.
  • Reverse deep drawn frame design.
  • Anti-slid groove design
  • Wider single foot provides extra strength and stability
  • Frame: SS316 Stainless Steel
  • Zirconium rings (silicon carbide equivalent)

DOUBLE FOOT GUIDES

  • Seaguide ONEGUIDE series versatile double-foot guides
  • Reverse deep drawn frame design provides unbeatable durability
  • Sloped frame decreases line tangling.
  • Frame: SS316 Stainless Steel
  • Zirconium rings (silicon carbide equivalent)

We are very proud to be making these fishing rods right here in Magnolia, Texas! We appreciate our customers supporting an American company!

    This rod is a work horse in my boat! Flipping or frogging heavy vegetation it handles both jobs easily. Strong and sensitive and the new Gen2 reel seat fits like glove.

    Best frogging rod on the Market. Love the new grip and reel seats. Plenty of backbone with just enough tip to really work the frog.

    Fast Power!

    Posted by Mike Tadlock on Nov 24th 2020

    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!

    Frog Rod!

    Posted by Kris W. on Aug 6th 2020

    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.

    Awesome Sensitivity and POWER

    Posted by Mike Tadlock on Apr 11th 2020

    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!
