ATX Vertical Jigging Blanks
Worldwide popularity of vertical jigging prompted the development of these technique specific blanks that use carbon tape, multi-modulus material combined with a glass fabric to deliver lightweight powerful blanks that can withstand the stresses of this demanding angling application. Offering 7 models from 15-30# line to 80-100+ lines will cover any species targeted.
Congratulations to our December photo contest winner, James Carnes of Osprey Custom Fishing Rods in Charlotte, North Carolina. James submitted this photo showing American Tackle solid titanium GNIV Titan V-frame spinning guides with gold rings. He also used ProBond and four coats of ProKote to finish this rod. James will receive a set of guides courtesy of American Tackle. Keep up the good work, James!
