MHX Elite Pro Series Rod Blanks

MHX Elite Pro Series Rod Blanks

MHX has become a premium rod brand with some of the most recognizable rod blanks. In the world of fishing, MHX blanks quickly found their stride, designed for certain fishing applications and proudly outperforming competitive brands in each application. MHX's latest line of blank—the New Elite Pro Series—is here and sure to fit in your budget.

What are the Elite Pro Series Rod Blanks (EPS)?

Led by MHX rod designer Todd Vivian, who has over two decades of experience in the rod building industry, MHX is always busy innovating and the Elite Pro Series is a perfect example.

MHX made its name manufacturing rod blanks for specific fishing applications and recently, they noticed an absence of product solutions in the freshwater market.


Professional fishermen and weekend enthusiasts alike needed a blank that could offer more sensitivity for techniques such as drop shots and shaky heads without getting into the high-modulus rod blanks.


Satin Black Finish—The MHX EPS series blanks also come is a gorgeous Satin Black finish that will make your custom rod guide and decorative accent wraps really pop.


The Best of Both Blanks—Strategically fitting in-between traditional graphite and high-mod blanks, the Elite Pro Series (EPS) blank gives you the sensitivity of the high-mod with many characteristics similar to traditional graphite.

As Todd Vivian describes he often had rod builders asking him, "I cannot decide whether to use the Standard MHX or the High-Mod version" —well now they can have the best of both worlds; durability, light weight, small diameters, and supreme sensitivity.

Don't Doubt the Design


The EPS concept first came into play for smallmouth and largemouth bass fishing applications. In both cases, feel and finesse are important factors to besting the bass.

Finesse techniques are crucial for using a drop shot or shaky head. With this in mind, MHX decided to offer the new EPS blanks in the popular lengths, actions, and powers that customers fishing similar applications already enjoy.

EPS Performance Potential—Although originally designed for bass fishing applications, the EPS line of blanks will work wonders in over 75% of freshwater fisheries. Great for all freshwater species, the different models of EPS blanks cater to bass, trout, perch, pike, catfish, and especially walleye.


Why walleye? Well certain EPS models have more progressive actions as well as softer tips to make them ideal for jigging or trolling for fish that have soft tissue mouths. Fishermen who use the new EPS blanks feel the strike better from the blank's high-mod characteristics while the hook stays in the mouth of the fish longer with the help of moderate fast actions.

Despite the EPS design for freshwater applications, it's also the perfect choice for inshore saltwater fishing. If you are a Redfish and Snook fisherman in the market for a popping or spooning blank, look no further than the new MHX EPS blanks.

MHX's new Elite Pro Series blanks fill the void between the Standard MHX blank and the High-Mod version. Providing the best of both blanks, the EPS has become a stand out for its small diameter, lightweight, extreme sensitivity, and durability.

Give the MHX Elite Pro Series a try on your next rod building project!
