The new Fox Predator Elite deadbait rods are Fox’s top-end range of deadbait rods. Built on a high-quality carbon blank, the Fox Elite series come in a stealthy matt blank finish and black EVA foam handle.
The Elite series comes with an upgraded fast action blank, giving this 12 foot 3.25lb test curve rod some reel casting power. The fast action gives you the backbone for setting hooks at range while giving you a phenomenal casting tool that effortlessly casts a bait to the horizon with ease.
The 3.25lb test curve rod is a powerhouse of a rod and will accommodate large baits with ease. The upgraded blank feels crisp and you can feel the power loading the blank when casting. However, when needed the blank is very forgiving when playing fish at close quarters.
The Elite series see upgraded SIC guides throughout. Mono and Braid compatible, the SIC guides feel tough and robust to deal with the rigours of modern pike fishing. The tip guide comes fitted with anti-tangle legs to ensure the line does not tangle around the tip of the rod.
Fox have fitted the Elite series with a full EVA handle, with the ability to repel water the EVA handle provides anglers with a firm yet comfortable grip in all weather conditions. Not only is the EVA handle durable but it also provides a low maintenance handle and with a quick wipe down with a damp cloth, will see the handle restored to it’s as new condition.
An upgraded Fuji fitted reel seat provides a reliable, secure and comfortable fitment that will accommodate both a free spool or big pit style reel easily. With the 3.25lb test model, we would opt for an 8000 - 10000 free spool reel or a big pit style reel if casting at distance is a major factor.
Overall the Fox Predator Elite series is a stunning range of rods that will highly appeal to the more experienced pike angler.
