More From The Impulse Original Series

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.

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.

3 reviews for 7’3″ Medium Spinning Rod


    This rod is extremely sensitive for detecting very light bites for dropshots. I’ve used this rod to catch fish by sight fishing spring beds in 1-2 feet and all the way down to 70 feet. It has the backbone to pull up 6+ pound smallmouth from the deep and the finesse to feel the lightest bites. With the right reel and line combination and drag setting, you can be confident to land those fish.

    I’m from Ohio and we have a little body water just north of us that holds a ton of Smallies, this rod is PERFECT for drop shot and tubes! Go Bucks!

    Purchased this rod for a drop-shot set-up and could not be more pleased. The rod balances perfectly to the reel seat and is extremely lightweight. The tip is sensitive enough to pick up even the lightest bites, and still has enough backbone to control fighting big small mouth. Loved it so much I purchased another one for throwing spybaits.
