    Gary, you are killing me with all of these great sales. How is the weight on these rods compared to some other high end rods? What kind of guides?

    Hey John

    They are light overall, even with the full Winn Grip. They all feature quality Fuji components, reel seat and guides. Weights are as follows:

    7'3"MH = 4.8 oz.
    7'3"H = 4.8 oz.
    7'3"XH = 5.3 oz.
    7'6"XH = 4.9 oz.
    7'11"MH = 5.6 oz.
    7'11"XH = 5.6 oz.
    7'11"MHCR = 5.4 oz.

    I think anyone would be extremely impressed with any of these high quality, US made rods at this price point. We want to get more of these out there so guys can see how good they really are. This sale is an effort to say thanks to our existing Hammer Rods customers, and welcome in a bunch of new ones! Please call the shop anytime today with questions. Thanks for all the orders so far BBC, rods are going out today and we will keep the website updated!

    Yes, the 73XH is pretty stout. You can certainly fish 1/2 to 1 oz jigs with no trouble, even in heavy cover. It's a fantastic heavy cover frog rod too and is very versatile for bigger treble moving baits like wake baits in the 1 to 1.5 oz range, and even handles the smaller Bull Shad type swim baits really well.

    The 7'3" Heavy is an all purpose magic rod. I can throw everything from jigs/texas rigs to spinner baits, chatter baits, buzz toads, frogs in not so dense cover, big top waters, I've thrown a 6XD on the 73H without trouble, it can really do so much it's hard to list it all.

    How would you rate bottom contact sensitivity compared to a Dobyns Champion line or the St. Croix Avid? How's the balance with say a Core?

    Sensitivity is subjective, but in my hands the Hammer Rods are clearly better than the Dobyns Champion series. I don't have enough experience with the St. Croix Avid to offer a meaningful opinion there. Balance points depend on which model selected. Obviously, the 7'11" models have a different balance point than the 7'3" models. A Core with a 7'3" Heavy would be about an 11 oz combo of awesome

    Buddy is looking for a swimbait rod. Hard baits. Which would be best for that?

    Hard swim baits can range from 1/4 to to 10 oz+, so without knowing specifically his intended weight range, I couldn't recommend which one would be the best. If you have an upper and lower weight range, I'll be glad to help with a recommendation.

    Just replaced my rods with Hammers. Great rods and Tackle Trap is a great company to buy from. Now let me go order the drop shot rod now.

    I throw T-Rigs (typically 1/4-3/8 weight + hook/plastic) with that rod a lot and also sometimes jigs, and think it would be a great choice for your son

    I'd take the Heavy for jigs from 1/4 to 1/2 oz most often in lighter to moderate cover. If it's 1/2 oz to 1 oz in heavy cover, I'd go with the Extra Heavy.

    7'6" H was sold out quick! What are the ratings between the 7'6" H and 7'6" XH? On tackle trap site, it shows them as the same.

    What techniques would you recommend the 7'3" MH for? I've been eyeing the Falcon Mike McClelland Swim Jig rod as my next purchase, it's a 5 power 7'2" MH fast, how would it compare to the Hammer I mentioned?

    I would use the MH for lighter moving baits and ones where you want to let the fish load up a bit more like Traps, squarebills, top water (buzzbait), weightless/wacky senkos for example. You can also use the Heavy for some this stuff if you like a little more stout rod or are throwing heavy versions of that stuff. For a swim jig Id be using a H because of the heavier wire hook, but the MH might work well or even better also.

    Im sure Gary will have some more (ie better haha) info
