ALX Ikos Casting Rods

(1 customer review)



The ALX Rods IKOS Series Bass Fishing Rods offer outstanding performance and maximum angler value.

Each IKOS Series rod begins with a low resin, intermediate modulus carbon fiber being precision rolled under intense pressure which creates the OS Hydra rod blank platform. The Hydra blanks shine at reading the lightest bites and delivering jaw-jarring power. Assembly of the final rod occurs at the ALX Rods factory in Aiken, South Carolina.

IKOS Series rods feature specific components that compliment the overall fishing package. Leading the way are the premium Z Series Kigan mid-micro guides that are braided line safe and pass leader knots exceptionally well. The split-grip handles are constructed from top-grade cork and aluminum trim pieces to deliver long life. Reel seat threads are trimmed to provide maximum comfort. Rods are quality checked at each manufacturing step to meet ALX Rods’ standards.

Carefully designed, tested, and crafted by ALX Rods’ in-house team, the ALX IKOS Series Casting Rods are excellent bass fishing tools built for cashing checks on Saturday.

A 1-year warranty backs all ALX Rods IKOS Series models against defect. All ALX Rods feature our lifetime no-questions-asked SureSet replacement program.

    For the beginner looking for a quality rod at a really great price point, the ALX IKOS series is a great place to get started. The rod blanks are a little bulky and a touch on the heavier side. If i remember correctly, this is the only series that is not completely made in the US too. As with each series, every ALX rod is specifically built for select techniques. The two best rods in the lineup IMO are the Hustler, Soul and the Promise 7. with that said though, I highly recommend upgrading to the ZOLO series of rods. the quality and sensitivity get better with each series; however, serious competition anglers should consider looking at the ZOLO from the get go if looking to incorporate these rods into your arsenal.
