These are six STIX (rods) designed to cover all of your bass fishing needs. From every variety of lure and presentation style. The basis around this lineup was versatility over creating a single purpose rods. Each STIK was designed to be ergonomic for both taller and shorter anglers alike. The butt ends had as much thought placed into them as the overall taper in being able to properly distribute a large variety of lure weights as well as leveraging steady hooksets. Being up on the times we at STIX realized we have reached a new era of high performance fishing lines from fluorocarbons and braids and even new advanced co-polymers and designed our models accordingly. All of our STIX are heavy duty high modulus composite rods with carbon nano mesh (Carbon Nano Technology). What’s does that mumbo jumbo mean??? Simple, very light and powerful and can bend evenly without having to create shut off points which is old technology from using older lines. Each rod has a downward open facing hook keeper preventing anglers from having to pull hooks back out from Texas rigged plastics. Next to the STIX logo you’ll find a bump board style scale to measure your fish quickly and conveniently. Each rod is also color coded to make the selection process faster.

This rod has become my dedicated dropshot rod, hands down, and will never leave my regular arsenal. I used to have one dropshot rod that was my favorite and I had never found the perfect replacement until I got my hands on this hybrid spin stik. For context, my style uses 10 pound braid an 8 pound fluorocarbon leader, a 3/16 ounce sinker, a 6 inch Roboworm, and a size 2 down shot, EWG, or dropshot hook depending on the time of year or place I am fishing (high pressured SoCal lakes). It has worked for me for years and it is always tied on and now it is always tied on this rod in particular. I have probably landed several dozens of fish including a 6 pounder on this rod in the six months I have had it and it has handled them all perfectly. It has a perfectly sensitive tip and the right amount of backbone to fight all the fish I have hooked in to. It has definitely become my most used and loved rod of the six rods offered by Stix.

Finally a rod that is truly all purpose, I’ve rigged many different finessed baits and this rod performs flawlessly. Very light weight and sensitive. I’ll be adding a couple more to my quiver.
I’ve used my STIX #2 Hybrid Stick since 2018 and I love everything about this rod, from dropshot to shaky head,wacky rigs, and smaller swimbaits it handles perfectly. I have many $400.00+ spinning rods that I have used in the past, but day in day out,especially in my club tournaments I prefer my STIX . I remember the day my rods arrived and I thought they were too good to be true. Now I see Pros using them and winning tournaments at the highest level, and I understand why. Their value and quality is unheard of and I don’t believe there’s a better rod or set of rods at the price anywhere. I’m buying more to help me in my tournaments this year. Thanks @stixfishing for creating such a brilliant idea with the STIX Pack of 6 and the 90 day trial. I can’t imagine anyone not wanting to keep ‘em .
I know I can’t wait to get my second set.
I’ve been using STIX Rods for 5 years, I’ve told everyone I’ve fished with in my bass clubs and fun fishing partners, there’s not a better value anywhere. I’ve used my #2 Hybrid spinning rod for dropshot and shaky head from Kentucky throughout North Carolina and Virginia and I’ve just ordered another one. I’ve paired it with a Shimano Vanford 2500 and 12# braid to 8# InVizX leader. I have the complete set of STIX and I will be adding more before the price increase. I highly recommend STIX, it’s hard to believe how great they are until to fish them and catch fish, yet never lose one.

Most versatile spinning rod out there hands down. Been using STIX rods since they came out and won’t use any other. All their rods are excellent and don’t break the bank. I use this rod for drop shots and wacky rigs mainly but you can literally use it for anything.
