The W3 Finesse T&C 2nd Generation rods (Texas & Carolina) are excellent rods for all kinds of predator fishing with both soft and hard lures. These rods are light and sensitive, but fast and powerful enough to set the hook in the hard, bony mouth of any predator! They are perfect for casting soft lures or slowly twitching a Texas or Carolina rig along the bottom. You can use them when pitching small hard lures in shallow water for perch and bass, or targeting trout and zander in deeper areas. W3 Finesse T&C 2nd Generation rods are great all-round tools for light and medium style predator fishing!
