The F5-68X BLADE derives its name both from the blade bait category and its ability to cut weeds and reeds with sharp power. Imbued with the unique blank tension of the 5-D GRAPHITE SYSTEM, the BLADE’s medium-fast taper is ideally suited to spinnerbaits, bladed swim jigs, Texas rigs and jigs deployed where cover contact is inevitable. The BLADE is tuned to maximize direct lure feedback, transmitting the subtle vibrations necessary for intuitive adjustments on the water. A shaft that accurately conveys even slight changes in vibration is an active participant in elevating your game, enabling a particularly aggressive cover approach.
