Bass Pro Shops® Walleye Angler rod line-up Updated!

Bass Pro Shops Product Announcement!

Bass Pro Shops® Walleye Angler rod line-up has options for catching the most finicky fish

Walleyes are infamously finicky fish, but the new lineup of Bass Pro Shops® Walleye Angler Casting Rods and Walleye Angler Spinning Rods offer the diversity you need to present persnickety walleyes the bait exactly the way they want it.

Whether the day’s winning technique is jigging, rigging, bobber fishing, casting to a windblown point, or dragging cranks behind planer boards or downriggers, the Bass Pro Shops® Walleye Angler line has the right rod for the task. Developed and recommended by legendary walleye tournament pros Gary Parson and Keith Kavajecz, these rods incorporate exclusive Carbon Coil Technology with RT4 graphite for maximum strength and sensitivity, and extreme light weight. Integrated cushioned reel seats hold the reel secure and provide comfortable, non-fatiguing grip. Spinning rods and non-trolling casting models feature a heat shrink, coated EVA mid-grip so anglers can get a firm, fish-fighting grasp. The EVA handles for trolling models are designed for quick removal from rod holders and ultimate comfort while wrestling walleye.

Catching a limit of ‘eyes is often all about feeling light bites, so rigging and jigging rods especially demand maximum sensitivity. The whole Bass Pro Shops Walleye Angler line features stainless steel guides. These optimize transmission of every vibration and tiny change of weight on the line to the rod blank and, ultimately, to your hand.

In spinning rods, the Walleye Angler line ranges from 5 foot 9 inch to 7 foot, 1-piece and 2-piece models for baits from 1/16 ounce to ½ ounce.  Casting/trolling rods range from 7 feet to 12 feet in 1-piece, 2-piece, and telescoping designs.

The Bass Pro Shops® Walleye Angler Casting, Trolling and Spinning Rods are economical, too. They range from $89.99 to $109.99 each and are available now at your nearest Bass Pro Shops® store or online at: http://www.basspro.com/.

Are the new Walleye Angler rods an improvement over the older series?  What's the difference between the new RT4 graphite and the past HM85?  I thought the past series was a real winner!  Thanks for a great product.

Hi Tom,

The new rods are very much like the CarbonLite series, except the actions and sizes have been fine tuned for walleyes.  As compared to the past rod line-up, they are much lighter, more sensitive and a bit more durable because of the wrapping technology.  The actions of the new rods are pretty much identicle to the older series.  I used them all last year during the tournament and TV season and fell in love!

I really like the old version and have 5 of the 7 footers.  Aside from weight, what are the advantages of using stainless steel guides instead of alumnum oxide?  Aren't they usually found on less expensive rods?

Not at all Larry - most of the higher priced rods are going to this type of guide - more durable and lighter than guides with inserts (like the aluminum oxide, etc).
