Jerkbait rod spinning

I like to use spinning gear for my jerkbait setup. This rod is perfect for those small light weight jerkbaits all the way up to your favorite deep diving jerkbaits. The casting of this rod is unmatched. Smooth and long. The action on your bait you get from the rod tip is awesome. Subtle twitching to fast snapping this rod will give you what your looking for in a jerkbait rod.

X chatter rod

This rod is super sensitive. You can see the tip just chattering with the bait. You also can feel the bait working. It's crazy to think that just feeling the bait work is much as you do with this rod you can visualize what's it's doing underneath the water column. Yakrods x chatter rod is the best on the market for bladed jigs hands down.

Speciality series crankbait rod

This rod is my go to crankbait rod. This rod excels in casting distance. The microwave guides paired with this Pacific Northwest blank is the ticket. Great sensitivity along with unmatched treble hook control from the parabolic bend. Yakrods nailed the crankbait rod in the speciality series.

Jig rod

First Yak Rods I've bought and I'm impressed. I'm looking forward to getting this rod out on the water and seeing what it can do!


Nice hoodie! Look forward to using it this year.


The X-Chatter is the perfect rod for bladed jigs, spinnerbaits, and even small plastic swimbaits. I tend to gravitate toward this rod no matter what time of year, and always have it in my yak. If there is any rod you need in your Yak Rods arsenal, it's this one!

Performance Shirt

Well I love the shirt but I fill it out a little more than I thought. Thought I ordered a large but a small came in the mail. The fish run away from my **** plumpness. I will have to order a new one.

High quality rod. Came very well packaged and works incredibly well. Outstanding sensitivity

I absolutely love this rod!

This rod has phenomenal sensitivity, yet has the backbone and parabolic bend to keep big fish pinned. Caught 2, 5lb hybrid bass on it back to back. It had absolutely zero issues helping to fight them and enabled me to land both, without bending out the hook on either fish. Would 100% buy again, or maybe I’ll just pick up another one.

Just about as dialed in as it can get.

I’ve been putting this rod to use frequently before the winter weather sets in and really am enjoying the nice and sticky grip for the cold and wet kayaking sessions. It loads nicely into the blank and handles the load of working a fish in. Definitely would recommend adding to your lineup if you fish from a kayak or even from the bank.

These are my new go to

Loving these rods. I mainly kayak fish from a kayak and the features on these rods make them perfect. I wanted a great American made company and YakRods are it.

Epic Performance LS UV Shirt

These shirts are really nice. They are well made. They do not hold smell like some of the other shirts do after washed. We can't wait to wear these on stage representing Yak rods

Great finesse rod

So far loving the Back Line Dropshot rod! I was looking for something that would be sensitive enough to feel the light bites and this rod is delivering!

Great Addition to the Arsenal

This rod is really light and well-balanced. Feels great in the hand. I paired it with a Daiwa BG 4000 and it casts a 3/16 weighted hook with a paddle tail like a dream. With a simple flick of the wrist and off it goes—no need to rare back and launch it to get the distance. For a medium rod, you can still feel everything. I will not leave it behind when out on the water. I highly recommend adding this to your arsenal if you are an inshore fisherman.

Awesome hat and honestly the most comfortable and breathable hat I’ve ever owned!

Blackline Jerkbait Rod

This is a really nice rod. I paired it with an ultralight reel (Concept C2), and it feels like nothing in your hand. My personal preference would be a slightly stiffer tip for working jerkbaits, but it's well within acceptable parameters for something like a 110. One of the nicer looking rods I own.

X-chatter / bladed jig rod

I recently took out my new x-chatter bladed jig rod and was I impressed. This rod will cast even the lights lures a country mile. Handled very well with the slobberknocker, mini-max and an under-spin. Would highly recommend. Great rod. Hope to get more.

Great swim/glade bait

This rod is able to handle a 2 oz. glide bait like it’s a 1/2 oz. Jig and still remains light and sensitive.

Best swimbait rod for kayakers!

I got into Swimbaits before kayak bass fishing. So I had some large rods that were difficult to work with on the yak. The boffo has taken over when it comes to my primary swimbait rod now! It has handled everything I have thrown at it and some! Very light and compact, it can be misleading at first. Then when on the water ya really get a feel for what this rod can do. Majority of the baits I have thrown are in the 3-4oz range which is really the sweet spot!

Great rod

If you’re dropshotting/finesse fishing you need this rod you won’t regret it super sensitive super lightweight!

This rod is top quality! Handles the 110 size jerkbaits like a dream! Can cast all day and never get tired. Perfect balance but a beast at handling fish!

RIP Jerkbait

Sensitive but strong! Perfect specs! Handles the 110 like a dream!
