Verdict on the Bass X, after plenty of reading:

Reasons to buy this rod

  • Constructed with SCII graphite blank which is tough and sensitive
  • Finished with Flex-Coat - giving this blank added protection
  • Fast tip but soft tip action is suitable for finesse applications
  • Light rod that excels in casting lighter presentations - even when looking to throw light reaction baits
  • Black framed aluminum-oxide guides are sturdy but light
  • Fuji reel seat provides comfort and sturdiness for your reel
  • Split grip with premium cork is comfortable for all kinds of casting
  • A more budget-friendly option from St. Croix

Reasons not to buy this rod

  • St. Croix will offer more sensitive rods, but at a higher price point

Rod Specifications:

Rod Blank

Bottom line

The Bass X has gathered a very good reputation due to their impressive sensitivity and lightweight design in their builds. Sure, there'll be more sensitive rods out there, but you'll have to pay a lot more.

This rod is perfect for all kinds of finesse methods, as well as throwing those smaller reaction baits. Overall, this looks like a solid contender in a very competitive price region.
