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.

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 initially purchased 2 of these rods for trolling however I found that the tip is a bit to flexible for trolling with weights. I paired this rod with a Kast King Rover 40 and have found a few good uses for this in my fishing spread.
This is an excellent downrigger rod which produces a very nice bow and hook set when fished on the downrigger. I have caught some nice Spanish Mackerels, Blue fish, and Stripe Bass on this rod.
Other uses its a good slow pitch jigging rod. I use it to vertical jig flutter spoons for Stripe Bass. Also this is a very good bottom fishing rod. Rod would have a nice bow before the fish even know it was hooked.
I would recommend doing this rod with a spiral wrap if using it for a conventional setup or in you dont use size 10 guides as your runners.
