Blanks to fish everywhere !

The problem with pike is that very often you have to put big lures or move a large volume of water to attract very big fish.The rods used are therefore quite powerful and casting heavy weights all day long can be tiring and less enjoyable on modest fish.  Especially since on some places, it can be complicated to lure pikes with very big lures when they are focused on small food. This is why it can be judicious when targeting pike with a single rod to start on a versatile and medium power rod. We mean here intermediate about maximum 100g on casting. This is already quite consequent but we are far from the rods being able to cast 250 or 300g !

Three blanks of different powers

We all have our favourite lures. The ones we believe in, the ones we know how to animate, the ones we have already caught fish with on different places. According to these lures you will not have any difficulty to release a range of power. For that it is necessary to think of the lures which we want to try. We expect the blank to be a good thrower, versatile, reactive and with a good ratio length/power. Here are 3 blanks of different brands which are very popular for this practice:

  1. NFC SJ 706 IM 2m13 15-40g : Very versatile blank which can be used to animate lures with bibs, frogs, stickbaits, and of course soft lures. For the hard lures because of its action it will be more oriented swimbait than jerkbait.
  2. Phénix C764 MH 2m28 15-50g : A longer blank to increase casting distance and a little more powerful. With its tip you can easily animate jerkbait type lures even if its length does not directly use it for that. Occasionally it will allow without difficulty a little more than its power range.
  3. Rainshadow REVFS 76MH 2m28 30-110g We couldn't fail to mention it as it is a classic for pike. We are almost on big bait because it can cast lures of 20cm but its versatility is interesting. It allows to cover a huge range of use. For its power, it is progressive enough and makes the fights still very fun.
