I can skim a 1/2oz or 3/8oz Keitech Model 1 very well on my NRX 853C. 15lb InvizX.

You should give the Model 3 Swim Jig /4.8 FAT a try. :whistle: Holy Hell! You might just skip it accidentally. I can put that bait anywhere. ZLN100HL-TWS/TAT721MHRB-G/40# J-Braid
Cast baits, not doubts.

I bet it does! I personally haven't tried the M3, since I don't stock them at the store I work at, but they've always looked intriguing. I may have to try some out this spring, though!

The Model 3 is one of my favorite swim jigs. I use the 3/8 oz.

Me too. I like all of them. I rarely miss a fish, they weed out the dinks, they come through the slop, they cast, they're sensitive, they're durable, they help your baits last longer, they give them better action...

I'm a shorter person (5'8") so I like a shorter rod. I use a St Croix 6'8" medium xtra fast. By which ever model suits your budget.
