This is a heavy/extra-fast action rod. It has a lighter action than our 104 series, but is still quite strong Ideal applications include jigs, worms, football jigs, C-Rigs, Texas Rigs, small belly-weighted hook Swimbaits, and Swim Jigs. This rod comes equipped with a low-profile casting seat.
From Power Tackle Pro Ray Hanselman:
“The 104 and the 580 are two rods that can be used with the same techniques: TX rig, wobble head, football head jig, Carolina rig, small swimbaits, and shallow flipping with fluorocarbon. I will use the 580 with the lighter weight baits and line and close quarters. The 104 is ideal for slightly heavier baits and more open water and long casts.”
