The Top 4 MHX Series of Crossover Rods

We have the best 4 series of rod blanks from MHX that build great crossover rods to cover multiple fishing applications!

The Best Fishing Rods for Freshwater & More

Ok, first. A rod blank is a rod blank.

In other words, there is no reason a rod blank designed with one fishing application in mind can’t be just as good for another similarly fishy scenario. Or just because the blank says spinning or casting does not mean it can not be used for either build.


So although you will find most MHX blanks are engineered for specific fishing applications, many of those same MHX rod series have attributes to other similar applications. Remember there are very few rules in rod building.

Learn which blanks make for great crossover fishing rods:

1. MHX Shooter Rod Blank Series

Originally designed for casting applications and pistol grips of the past, the MHX Shooter Series continues to rely on shorter lengths and fast actions.

But now, these blanks because custom rods designed for any underhand casting and skipping techniques. Whether skipping around docks, mangroves, or looming tree limbs, this series is well-known for casting with pin-point accuracy.

The precision casting of the MHX Shooter Series is quite popular for these techniques, but now they have found their way into the hands of Walleye wanting shorter rods for jigging applications.

How would you use the MHX Shooter Series?

2. MHX Popping Rod Blank Series

The MHX Popping Series was initially designed for flats fisherman and  inshore applications when using Popping Corks, Crankbaits and top water plugs.

Now, the Popping Rod Blanks are preffered by many anglers using them to cross-over into Drop Shot, Jerk Bait, live bait, Rattle Traps, and even custom Shakey Head builds

If you want to build a versatile rod to take almost anywhere, consider one of these Popping blanks!


3. MHX S-Glass Rod Blank Series

The MHX S-Glass Series was once considered “old technology” but is now making a come back due to the updated S-Glass and the buttery smooth action many crankbait and chatterbait fisherman prefer.

Not to mention, these blanks even make great trolling rods.

4. MHX Crankbait Rod Blank Series 

The Mod-Fast actions of the MHX Crankbait Series were not designed by accident. A lot of R&D went into getting the proper power and actions crankbait fisherman prefer. Now, anglers have gravitated towards the CB Series when using any treble hook applications, but did you know they are also amazing when fishing shiners and swimbaits!

With powers ranging from Med-Light to X-Heavy, these blanks have found their way to both freshwater and saltwater with incredible results.
