Rattle Trap Rods

If you aren’t throwing a rattletrap type lure on THIS rod, your doing it wrong.

“The rattletrap type lures have a great history on my home lakes, Toledo Bend and Lake Sam Rayburn in East Texas. Arguably one of the best techniques on my home waters as well as most other Southern lakes during the Springtime. It is a very effective lure for catching big pre-spawn bass. The key is to keep covering water and make contact with the grass, trees, or bushes that you are fishing. Having the right rod to get them out of the cover is critical.” -Lance Stringer

The Impulse Difference

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!

FUJI KB Belly Guides

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.
