Most flats anglers would refer to the "8400" as an ultra-light popping rod, but don’t let that fool you. It has an extremely fast tip for fishing light line and small jigs or live bait, but the butt-section has plenty of power to handle big fish. It casts light lures easily and accurately, making it a good choice for sight-fishing flats species like redfish, bonefish and seatrout. IMX makes it exceptionally light and extremely sensitive. Freshwater anglers use this rod to fish crankbaits, small jigs, finesse worms and tube baits for bass.
