THE ARTIST 2752 MH Dark Elf is the perfect rod for bank or shore fishing on big, open waters. Beaches, estuaries or over rocky outcrops at sea and big rivers, lakes and reservoirs inland. This rod is light yet concedes nothing in terms of power or rapidity. It will launch lures in the range of 12 to 50g to record distances. The tip actions is perfect for controlling and animating plugs: surface lures (Bonnie series, Clyde Mud Sucker 110, Riser Bait 008 and 012SL, Chatter Beast 110 and 145), sub-surface lures or lipless minnows (Water Monitor series, Stream Ripper 75, 90 and 110), minnows (Squad Minnow 95 SP, MagSquad 115 F and 128 SP, Arnaud series, Rerange series, Tricoroll Ryushin 70 SHW), longbill minnows (Squirrel 79 SP, DD Squirrel 79 SP, Super DD Squirrel 115 SP, DD Arnaud 100 SP). The rod will impart the slightest movement to soft baits like: Magic Slim Shad 4, 5 and 7; Magic Finess Shad 4 and 5 or Magic Z Shad 80 and 105 fished with a 5g to 20g jig head. Nitro 90, 120 and 150 on a Nitro Shad Head from 7 to 21g. Heavy drop shotting using weights from 7 to 21g.
