LURE FISHING RODS - HTO
HTO - a UK lure fishing brand that are bringing some outstanding lure rods onto our market, and at all kinds of prices as well.
HTO Nebula M 2.7m (9’) 7-35g
A game changing lure fishing rod - at the UK retail price of a penny under £120, this very fast and steely HTO Nebula M 2.7m (9’) 7-35g lure rod is just incredible. Light, responsive, powerful but not overpowered, very fast action, very well built (Fuji guides and reel seat), and I reckon a perfect rod for a lot of UK and Irish lure anglers. What more could we possibly expect from a rod at this price? Fish with this thing and you will never for one second feel that it’s anything less than pure class. See my review here.
HTO Nebula MH 2.7m (9’) 12-42g
These HTO Nebula rods are a joke - far too much rod for the money if you ask me, but then as a hopeless tackle tart I am not complaining at all! This HTO Nebula MH 2.7m (9’) 12-42g lure rod is a tad more powerful than the lighter 7-35g version, but it is still more than usable and for many anglers I reckon it will make a very good all rounder. See my review here.
HTO Shore Game S882LML 8’8’’ 7-28g
Very different to the longer and more powerful 9’6’’ HTO rod, this shorter HTO Shore Game S882LML 8’8’’ 7-28g is a bit of a gem for the lighter bass lures especially. A proper finesse style of bass lure rod if you like - it can chuck the heavier stuff if needs be, but this 8’8’’ HTO rod really comes to life when you fish with lighter lures and work them around. Something like an IMA Salt Skimmer or OSP DoLive Stick on this rod is just a joy. Check my review of this rod out here.
HTO Shore Game S962MLM 9'6'' 7-35g
This rod is a frigging weapon! A long distance machine that is very well suited to fishing all manner of different lures, but when you really need to get it out there, this HTO Shore Game S962MLM 9'6'' 7-35g does it with such ease. I like this rod a lot, indeed if I was looking at a lure rod between the more typical 10-30g and 15-42g casting weights on the Major Craft rods that I like so much, then this HTO rod fits perfectly in the middle of these two ratings. Make no mistake, this is a deadly serious bit of fishing tackle and I’d own it in a heartbeat. Check out my full review of this rod here.
