Elite Pro Rod Blanks Retooled with Nano Resin

Using the combination of 50 million modulus Toray fiber and the innovative Nano Resin system, the new EPS blanks feature exciting upgrades to the original line that anglers definitely want to feel and fish for themselves.

Catch all the NEPS action yourself with these 5 reasons to build your own!

1. Redesigning the Popular Elite Pro Series

When compared to previous blanks, these retooled Elite Pro Series blanks are identified by the "NEPS" part number to note the addition of the Nano Resin system. This Nano Resin system allows the NEPS blank to be as thin and lightweight as possible while still having the correct material and strength throughout the rod blank.

Producing smaller diameters for superior sensitivity, but without costing any loss of power or durability, these blanks bring an amazing feel for strikes and lure control to your fishing performance.

2. Engineered with Expert Experience

Once avid anglers receive their MHX Rod Blank, they do so knowing the blank's design has been developed to exceed the demands of their fishing application.

Engineered with specific environments, techniques, and species in mind, MHX Rod Blanks are developed as solutions for any angler looking to enhance their performance in a given application. Once the angler's needs are identified, MHX Rod Designers research and develop the best blank to get the job done.

Considering practice makes perfect, these MHX blanks start as a concept before becoming a testable prototype. Then, each prototype blank is distributed to MHX Regional Pros, who begin rigorously fishing to test for the correct power and action of each blank in its designated application.

Next, these MHX Regional Pros return suggestions for the prototype's performance to MHX Rod Designers, who then tweak the blank accordingly. MHX uses this advanced research and development system to sustain rod blanks with the highest quality and performance around.

Like all MHX blanks, the new Elite Pro Series blanks were put under strenuous tests before reaching the market. And let's just say even the pro anglers testing the blanks, couldn't stop asking for more models!

Outperforming and outlasting other options, the NEPS blanks bring a lightweight and sensitive design backed by the durability and strength to guarantee an unbeatable performance and experience.

3. Elite Performance in Rod Blanks

Quickly championed by professional fisherman across both freshwater and inshore competitions, this updated MHX Elite Pro Series sets the new standard in performance, finesse, and feel for rod blanks.

These NEPS blanks are available in assorted actions from Extra Fast and Fast to Moderate-Fast, organized in powers from light to heavy with multiple combinations in between, and rod lengths ranging from 6'6³ to 7'8³.

The NEPS blanks have been fine-tuned for an optimal feel while working baits and setting the hook, and then each blank is ready to show off its raw strength when it's time to fight and land fish.

When asked about developing the retooled Elite Pro Series blanks, MHX Rod Designer Todd Vivian returns, "What is there to say when you feel so confident about something you have had the opportunity to create?"

He grins and explains, "Truly, hands down the best rod blanks on the market. When you cannot find a competitor's product that would come close to rivaling it, you really need to feel good. There's no 'Hype' about some new exotic fiber or process that doesn't exist, just true technological enhancements that have allowed us to create a superior product."

Boasting reduced diameters without sacrificing any power, the tactical balance and dynamic performance of the MHX Elite Pro blanks is truly unbelievable in your palm.

4. Target Freshwater and Inshore Applications

The Elite Pro Series showcases some of the best rods for targeting specific freshwater and inshore fishing applications, techniques, and lures with superior sensitivity and strength. Engineered from experience and built with the boosts in performance to match, this EPS line definitely kicks professional performance up a notch.

MHX designs and produces each rod blank for specific applications and uses. The design information is listed along with each blank to provide the custom rod builder with usage and application suggestions.
