Welcome to the first Old 18 Limited Custom Series! The Midnight is crafted with the Texas Gulf Coast wade fisherman in mind. Made with the finest components we could get our hands on, the Midnight can take on the surf and deliver the world's finest sensitivity. It features a Northfork X-ray blank by Gary Loomis, black pearl Recoil guides, a carbon fiber fighting butt, a Grade A cork handle, and an American Tackle reel seat. Also, each rod has Texas fish markers at the 15", 20", 25", and 28” measurements. There was no holding back in the design of this masterpiece. Just one bump, and you'll know you are using the best.
Love the rod. Shorter handle ideal for use on the kayak or jonboat. Excellent sensitivity. Plenty of backbone for larger fish!
Great built rod , I have used this rod for a lot of different applications and it has performed outstanding . Has light enough tip too throw lighter baits but enough backbone to handle big fish .
This is as good as an ultralight can get. Super sensitive and well made
Can't say enough good things about this fishing rod. I absolutely love throwing it as do my envious friends! This rod gives me the ability to actually cast 1/16 oz lures a reasonable distance and how it performs with a 1/8 oz lure is unquestioningly, as good as it gets!
When it comes to rod sensitivity, I honestly don't know how it could be improved. The smallest of bumps, nudges and touches will be felt through this rod giving me an advantage in quicker hook sets and/or hook sets requiring a greater degree of finesse.
The rods light weight makes it comfortable for long periods of casting and although the rod is light in weight and offers great sensitivity, it has had more than enough "backbone" to properly hook, play, catch and release numerous 28 inch + redfish!
Another well balanced rod. I use this rod for my Carolina rig. This rod loads well and got enough back bone to bring them to the boat. Definitely one to add to your line up of rods
