INTRODUCING THE NEO XH! (& Flash Sale)
Posted by: Aleks Maslov (---)

Dear All,

About a year ago we introduced the NEO blank - which has very quickly become a favorite of rod-builders for its versatility and durability. Many have called it "The One" as its application spans many techniques and styles.

We are excited to introduce its older brother that has spent some time at the gym bulking up - a versatile extra heavy blank!

More details and pictures can be found on our webpage:

[northforkcomposites.com]

High Level Specs: 8 feet long, 15-40lb line rating, 3/4 to 6oz lure rating, and a blank weight of 4.3oz.

This blank is ideal for: Swimbaits, Toads, Buzz Bait, Lipless, Diving, Square Bill, Wake Bait, Jerk Bait, Prop Bait, Walking Bait, Chatter Bait, Spinner Bait, Jigging Spoon, Blade Bait, Vibrating Jigs.

Go ahead, send it, this blank is built for that.

Gary, Alex, AJ, Khiem, and team.

Aleks, enough blank to handle 4 ounces of lead and bottom fishing for 20-30# snapper and grouper?

Hate to put you on the spot but knowing what the blank could dead lift would be very helpful for my needs.

Any idea when NFC plans to expand the HMx -ray material into other rod categories because I remember early on when they first came out in the description it said that the HMx-ray material would be expanding into other rod categories at some point .

Thank you kindly

Considering the sea conditions here during non summer months in the Pac NW, and the Covid crisis I can't imagine much time recently has been spent offshore, that and we don't have grouper here. The picture on the site shows the blank holding 3 lbs.

Spencer,

This is not an offshore specific rod, and the weight on the blank is there to showcase the power of the tip.

The blank is also great for Musky applications, etc. :-)
