Ascendant Trolling Rod Technical description and specifications

The ultimate in JT proprietary blanks built with premium Toray carbon fiber, is now available in this one piece work of art.  We felt the name Ascendant was fitting for this elevated caliber of pure trolling precision.  For years elite caliber anglers have asked for a high end trolling rod design to better read the action of a trolling presentation while enjoying the qualities of a rod engineered for absolute precision.  Now that piece of grass on the back hook can be detected to ensure your running clean and effectively.  Upgraded Hero-High grade eyelets with Silicon Nitride inserts allow line to fly back into position.

RECOIL guides are made from a special nickel titanium alloy with unique physical properties which means no ceramic inserts are necessary. RECOIL guides are made from an extremely hard but flexible “Shape Memory” alloy, which does not require plating, cannot corrode in any environment, and returns to its original shape after repeated deformations.

Our rods are made of a combination of domestic and foreign sourced components.

"Hands down the best rod for casting light jigs in the spring. The length on this rod allows for casting light jigs a mile without effort. Weather its casting a small jig and minnow or a smaller hair jig this rod is the perfect rod for the task. This is my go-to rod all spring. I pair it with a size 2000 spinning reel and 6-pound mono or braid and a short fluorocarbon leader. The sensitivity of this combo and its ultra lightweight makes it very easy to fish with all day. I have yet to hook a fish with this rod that left me thinking I was underpowered. This is by far my favorite open water rod offered by JT. "
Loving my JT Panhandler ice rod!! The sensitivity is amazing and paired with a Okuma C10 reel it is a joy to fish with!!
