Great deal on this John Cox Casting rod kit! The 2016 reigning Forrest Wood Cup Champion, John Cox chose to center this complete rod kit on the MB843 Blank because it’s one of the most versatile MHX Blanks. Great for any lures from Texas rigs and spinnerbaits all the way to jigs and topwater baits, this exclusive John Cox Rod Kit brings an optimized performance when casting each lure. Whether fishing at home in Florida or traveling along the FLW Tour, Cox trusts this rod’s versatility to do it all.
|"This Casting Rod’s accuracy is impossible to beat. It is perfect for pitchin' and I trust its precision to guarantee a strike from any fish at a close range. When I'm in close with a fish, this casting rod is as automatic as it gets." - John Cox, 2016 FLW Forrest Wood Cup Champion|
Included in your rod kit:
MHX High Performance Graphite Rod Blank - The MHX MB843 rod blank incorporates innovative designs of both traditional and progressive actions. The multi modulus materials allow MHX to utilize the correct material in each portion of the blank, and MHX blanks are as much as 40% lighter than comparable standard graphite models, and incredibly more sensitive. The rod blank also comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
Rod Specs: 7'0" | 10-17 lb. | 1/4 - 3/4 oz. | Fast Action | Medium-Heavy Power | 1 Piece | 5.0 Tip | 0.59 Butt | Slate Finish
Custom Quality Components - This kit includes a durable (and easy to work with) EVA split grip handle kit, a deluxe graphite casting reel seat with trigger grip for maximum comfort, plus a set of perfectly fitted and sized CRB Elite rod guides & matching tip top, and is finished with fitted winding checks. All of these parts were sized to perfectly match and fit the MHX MB843 rod blank dimensions.
CRB Hand Wrapper - The CRB Hand Wrapper features a dual spool tensioner and a tension rod which allows for easy reversing while building. Thread then runs to the slider which can move seamlessly along the 10" wrapping base. The wrapper also features adjustable stands mounted to the base along with a third stand for supporting the butt or tip. Finally, the hand wrapper incorporates interchangeable step by step instruction cards displaying a range of basic wrapping and advanced decorative techniques, and the basic wrapping Step by Step card is included.
CRB Rod Dryer - The CRB Rod Dryer offers rod builders a durable, easy to use drying unit that is perfect for novice and professionals, at a price point unheard of in the industry without sacrificing functionality. This system features a 9 RPM 110V Drying motor with 6' cord, form fitting chuck, and one Dryer Support Stand.
ProWrap Rod Winding Thread - A generous amount of ProWrap thread has been included in this kit. There are 3 spools of Size D ColorFast Nylon guide wrapping thread (Blue, Green and Red), along with 2 spools of size A Metallic Winding thread (Silver and Gold) for decorative trim wraps on your guides.
ProKote & ProPaste Epoxy - This kit includes all the material you need. For the handles and reel seat, we included a 2 ounce ProPaste kit which is a high strength rod building paste adhesive. To make sure your guide wraps stay secure and protected from UV damage, we have also included a 24 ml. ProKote kit, which is one of the best rod building thread finishes on the market.
Supplies & Tools - Professional rod builders have selected all the tools you will need to build your fishing rod. The tool set in this kit includes (10) razor blades, mixing cups, brushes and mixing sticks (for the ProKote & ProPaste), burnishing tool and a grit hand reamer (for the EVA handle should you need it).
