Default 7. TSX30s, TSX 50s, TSX 80s PRO SERIES w/ ALPS RX-H Wind-on Roller Guides

This version of the TSX has the ALPS RX-H roller guide set. These guides are the largest in the ALPS Arsenal with a .27" clearance. If you are using wind-on's, leaders with swivels, and/or bridals, this guide just may be what you are looking for to make sure you get a clean pass. Similar to the classic TSX model, this rod has the same solid composite blank with a slow taper and larger diameter to accommodate the large guide foot which is normally only seen on long trolling rods. The result is a highly versatile rod with a class specific parabolic curve from grip to tip. The ALPS RX-H wind-on roller guides are 130 unlimited class so integrity/ strength will never be an issue. The rod is tested to 50 lbs of drag (perpendicular force) before the line coming off the reel starts to touch the fore-grip. If you are still hanging onto the rod at 50 lbs of drag, make sure you are tied to the boat, or have skis on.
