Brandon Lester Elite Pro 6’9” Med-Light X-Fast Spinning Rod

This is one of Elite Pro Brandon Lester's favorite finesse drop shot and ned rig rods. For spinning applications, this rod casts with superior accuracy, while its extra fast tip gives bait the ideal action, and the medium-light power bends to become the perfect shock absorber that guarantees fish stay buttoned up. The extra fast tip and medium-light power also provide excellent performance advantages when vertical fishing the drop shot.

6'9" | 6-15 lb. | 5/32 - 7/16 oz. | Extra Fast Action | Medium-Light

“The NEPS81MLXF is definitely my favorite rod for drop shots, ned rigs, and wacky rigs. My 6'9" Spinning Rod effortlessly skips wacky rigs under docks, but also works just as well in finesse and drop shot applications. The sensitivity of this one is very hard to beat.”
Brandon Lester, Bassmaster Elite Series Pro Angler

Brandon Lester Elite Pro 6’9” Medium X-Fast Spinning Rod

The superior sensitivity and powerful performance of Pro Brandon Lester's 6'9" NEPS81MXF-MHX Spinning Rod is just what he needs on the Bassmaster Elite Series. This rod dominates fish when throwing heavier lures like shaky heads, and Brandon counts on this rod anytime he needs the power to push a hook through plastic and into a fish's mouth. The Elite Pro Series 6'9" Spinning Rod is ultra-lightweight, yet strong and durable to bring a balanced performance that is scary good on the water

6'9" | 8-17 lb. | 1/4 - 5/16 oz. | Extra Fast Action | Medium Power

“For me, this 6'9" spinning rod is perfect for heavier tackle like 1/16-1/4 ounce shaky heads. Its sensitivity is unreal and the backbone will always answer when big fish strike. I caught my largest smallmouth on this rod and it was a highlight of my career.”
Brandon Lester, Bassmaster Elite Series Pro Angler
