This PEPPER S 2252 M-MH SILVER OPS is the most powerful model in our PEPPER range. Gael Even deigned this two-piece rod specifically for “beefed up” Finesse tactics. At 225cm long, the rod has plenty of casting power whilst offering great lure control and bite detection at all distances. The design brief stipulated a fast action along the lower ¾ of the blank with a softer action in the final ¼. This makes for a versatile rod that can handle surface lures like the BONNIE 95 and 107, RISER BAIT 008, CHATTERBEAST 90 and 115 and a range of plugs such as WATER MONITOR 95, STREAM RIPPER 75, 90 and 110, RERANGE 110 and 130 SP, RV MINNOW 110 SP, BATTLE MINNOW 135 SP, SQUIRREL 79 SP and DD SQUIRREL 79 SP. Equally at home straight lining soft baits like the MAGIC SLIM SHAD 4, 5 and 6 or the MAGIC FAT SHAD 5 or the MAGIC Z SHAD 105, 130 et 160 on MAGIC ROUND HEADS from 5 to 14g. Will also handle traction-style soft baits from the NITRO SHAD 65 mounted on 7 to 10g NITRO SHAD HEADS to our NITRO SLIM SHAD 150 fished on 10 to 14g heads. Gael wanted this to be his go-to rod for freshwater zander, big perch fishing and light piking and finesse sea fishing from shore or boat. This punchy PEPPER S 2252 M-MH SILVER OPS fits the bill perfectly. It is also ideal for roving with the 14 to 28.5g DERACOUP and fishing the RUNNER BLADE, sizes 70 and 90, or SILVER SHADE casting jigs. This rod will quickly become a reference point for the serious big fish lure anglers. This PEPPER is built on our new X5 high quality blanks incorporating prepreg carbon set at three different angles to reduce weight and increase responsiveness without sacrificing power. Features FUJI TORZITE TITANIUM K guides to eliminate frap-ups, reduce weight and prolong line life. The VSS reel seat is comfortable to fish with and play fish on. Supplied with a Cordura protective tube and signature rod bag.
