Ark Rods
« on: November 08, 2018, 03:15:06 PM »

Does anyone here have any experience with Ark rods? They've got some good looking sticks, but I can't get my hands on one around here. I know they're based out of Florida and we've got some southern boys here, so hopefully some of you fellas can chime in.

I have the Invoker 7ft 3 Mag MH. Great rod for the money.. Kinda has a JDM look. I throw spinnerbaits and buzzbaits on it mostly but it would make a jig rod. Mine came from Okeechobee tackle.
The owner Louie used to be with Halo . I guess he and Randall Tharp started Ark.
I think the Invoker and the Phenix feather are about the best at that price point right now.

That's the rod I was considering in the Sniper line. How's the weight and sensitivity on that stick?

I would put the sensitivity in line with a Champion or Avid. I have a E series Citica on mine and it balances just in front of the reel nut.
It also makes a nice smaller Paddle tail rod, 3/8 oz. head or there abouts.
They hadn't come out with the Sniper line when I got the Invoker but I would like to try one.

Personally I really want to try one from the Invoker and Sniper series.  They sound like excellent rods.  I seldom get the chance to handle a rod before buying.  Reviews and opinions on forums like this one are how I determine which rod to buy.  So far I have been disappointed only once....and that was because I didn't do the research first.
