HT Enterprises has brought to market an affordable mid-level combo rod and reel that delivers great fishing action and performance comparable to higher end models. The Jimmy Houston Fish Hunter Pro DX Spinning Combo features a 2-piece fiberglass rod along with a premium contoured genuine cork handle. The rod is an IM6, a feature of more expensive rods and the medium action tip of the 6’6” blank delivers great sensitivity. The rod is further supported by sturdy aluminum oxide guides. Having fought some solid battles, the rod has proven to be very durable, providing the needed strength to handle solid catches and some of the toughest situations.
In addition, one can’t overlook the eye catching camo pattern that makes this combo visually attractive, adding a little cool factor to the mix.
The reel is capable of holding 130 yards of 6-lb.-test line has four bearings; and a 5.2:1 gear ratio, plus an instant anti-reverse feature. The smoothness and stop action that the reel provides is exceptional. This is great overall combo that delivers great value at a great price.
