MHX Rod Blanks Help Master Hookset

MHX Rod Blanks Help Master Hookset

Even though the perfect hookset takes time to master, it's much easier when fishing with performance driven MHX Rod Blanks. Find out more about the making of these World Class Rod Blanks and how each MHX model becomes so unbeatable on the water.

The Science of Hooksets with MHX Blanks

MHX engineers each rod blank for peak performance in designated fishing applications. The performance behind each blank doesn't miraculously appear, but rather takes a testing process that has championed MHX Blanks across the industry.

Each blank's concept starts as a solution for improved performance in a certain fishing applications. This solution then turns into a blank prototype and the prototypes are sent out to MHX regional pros all over the nation.

The MHX regional pros rigorously test the blanks to ensure each blank holds up in performance and excels in its application. After receiving feedback from pros, MHX tweaks models accordingly, and then a new series of dominant rod blanks is born.

For example, the MHX Flippin' & Pitchin' Series incorporates innovative designs of both traditional and progressive actions to achieve the ultimate performance. Each blank's multi-modulus construction uses the optimum material in every portion of the rod blank. This advanced production process is second to none, and it's also why each blank makes setting the hook look so easy.

Want more proof? Take it from the reigning Forrest Wood Cup Champion, MHX Pro John Cox and his John Cox FP885 7'4" Flippin' Pitchin' Frog Rod.


Smooth Hooksets by FLW Pro John Cox

Pro John Cox is known as much for sight fishing as he is for having one of the smoothest hooksets on the FLW Tour.

Although John Cox has always been a very successful sight fisherman, it's often his trust in the high-performance blanks of MHX that lead him past the pack. By trusting MHX Blanks to do the work of setting the hook, Cox has witnessed his odds of landing fish and winning cash increase tremendously.


For John Cox, a smooth hookset took years of practice, but MHX Rod Blanks certainly helped. As he rose the ranks of professional fishing, Cox along with the trusty performance of MHX worked diligently on hooksets to perfect a calm yet controlled motion that pins even the biggest fish down every time.
