I'm looking at buying either the ULF 3-15g or ULX 1-9g. I've heard that the ULX is more through action than the ULF, can anybody confirm this for me?
Have any of you got either of these rods and how do you find them?
Does anybody recommend another rod or other rods in the same price bracket?
I've used a Bushwhacker XLNT 3-18g but looking to try something else.
I want it for light lures, soft plastics and freshwater stuff...
Thanks!

I know that some of these rods have been discussed before but the thread ended up going more into the use of light tackle over heavier.

I have had a ULX for a while and it is a blast. In fact it has got a lot to answer for as it started me and a couple of others on the LRF trail. When I bought I said I was going to have fun but I didn't guess for a minute quite how much fun! Sure there are alternatives but I am quite attached to mine.

What kind of action has it got Paul, I heard that the ULX is through action, what do you think? Cheers!

I have the ulx 1-9g and it's absolutely class. Definitely has a real through action. Had pollack up to 3lbs on it last weekend and can confirm that it has a full C curve with a decent fish stripping line. won't cast the furthest - maybe a tippier action would cast better but it'll put a small 5g wedge 30yds easily enough which should suffice for most situations. I reckon the through action helps when it comes to something slightly larger hitting your lure. get one.

I've the ULX too, fab piece of kit, love it. I think the ULF is a solid tip so might be what you're after. I'd defo give **** a ring, apparently he has 40 LRF rods in stock...

Cheers Tim, I emailed ****.
Keith, I'm a novice as regards using these very light rods but I've used/I use fast action lure rods for bass and really just wanted to try this out with small stuff!.... Your advice is appreciated, from looking at the forum you seem to do a lot of this stuff.
Usually, I would have just bought the rod and tried it but can't be doing that anymore...well for a while anyway!!!:cry::cry::cry:

You cant go wrong with a ULX. Great weight range, very sensitive, super light, good on fish to 3lb.

If you want another great rod, look at the Diaflash. Handles more powerful fish with no weight penalty. solid tipped and more specialist.

If sourcing from Japan, Graphiteleader and Major Craft make outstanding sticks. I have the Zaltz in 0.5 - 5g. Superb !!
