Maven Pacific 8’3″ Stickbait Rod – PE4-6
Launched in September 2015 from our Maven Pacific Collection, the MPSB833-2 rod is the medium rated rod in the world class Maven stickbait range.
This two piece rod is beautifully finished in Maven’s signature pinstripe paint design, with highest quality components and hand crafted perfection.
The rod’s technical design and material specifications allow the user significant flexibility with regard to its application. The rod is very capable with varying line weights, and able to match your fishing style or a specific fishing application depending on your requirements.
The rod allows effective lure action with lightweight lures from 85 grams to a suggested maximum of 160 grams (excluding terminals, hooks, split rings etc). At the light end of the lure range the rod will feel firm but it will provide enough flexibility to provide an effective lure action. At the heavier end of the lure range the rod will feel softer but will still provide enough power to both cast and swim lures up to 160 grams. The sweet spot for this rod is between 90-140 grams.
The rod has been tested with a broad range of lure, floating and sinking ranging from 85 to 160 grams and with line weights from PE5 to PE8.
The rod locks up a little earlier than the lighter PE2-4 model, and has much more backbone as it designed to be able to target fish in ‘reefy zones’. It has the ability to handle a high drag load if required, while still being very forgiving on the angler due to the high strain 33msi 100% carbon blank .
