Quality you can trust. MHX again sets the standard with our exclusive limited lifetime transferable warranty. Each rod blank can be registered online with its individual serial number by either the custom rod builder or the end user of the rod. When registered, the blanks unique serial number identifies that rod blank to registrant. If the registrant sells or gives the rod blank or finished rod to another person, the warranty can be transferred to the new owner – an industry first! In order to activate your warranty, you must register your MHX rod blank. Warranty claims will not be accepted without a valid serial number on file.
Each MHX blank is designed and produced for specific applications and uses. The design information is listed along with each blank to provide the custom rod builder with usage and application suggestions.
Under a 7 point inspection system, blanks are checked for straightness, butt and tip diameter, weight & length – and are deflected to confirm correct power and blank action. This industry leading detailed inspection assures custom rod builders receive a blank which exceed their expectations.
INDIVIDUAL SERIAL NUMBERS
Once it has passed the quality control stage, each MHX blank is assigned an individual serial number. This assures that every MHX rod you build, fish, buy or sell can be tracked throughout it’s life cycle from end to end with no concern about warranty issues.
I love this blank for fishing jigs/texas rigs on fluoro down deep weedline. The softer tip and heavy backbone makes it perfect for this. I used to use this blank for frogging too and really liked it but I don't use it anymore because I have broken a few. I would not say it is a weak blank because it seems to hold up on big fish in heavy cover but I think the blank ends up breaking down after a summer or two of fishing very heavy cover and ends up breaking near the handle on a hookset. All blanks were replaced with MHX warranty with no problems.
If you're looking for a heavy frog blank I would suggest the MHX FP885. The mod/fast action gives you a little more forgiveness when they are in the thick stuff.
I've built MB843's and MB 873's and decided to try the MB 874. The increase in power was more than I expected. Still a nice blank.
