The Breakaway HDX Tournament Butt turns a great rod into a rod which has amazing adaptability.
If you own a standard HDX 13ft rod, the Tournament Butt is an natural upgrade.
Check out this video which explains how it works.
Deon Hunter HDX is one of the best rods I have fished with buy far.
What I love about it is your can cast a 8oz weight out of sight for sliding a bait ,
our you can put a Avet 50 wide on it and kayak a bait out and it will handle any shark that takes the bait.
P.S. One thing I forgot was that the HDX does not weigh a tone it is a lite rod.
Got this from Pro Team Breakaway Member Deon Hunter.
I have been targeting a tiger shark for a while now, and Friday night I got him! A male Tiger shark 10 feet 2 inches, thank you Lord.
I was using the Breakaway HDX 13 foot acid wrap with a low reel seat. The real was avid 50 wide, 100 lb jb hollow core braid, the hook was a 20/0 eagle claw circle hook and the bait was a Cownose Ray.
It took me 1 hr and 45 min to land this tiger and the HDX handled it with ease.
The photo is not that great , my main concern was too see him released safely as I was by myself.
What an awesome experience!
Great report and well done Deon. Its not many rods that I know off that have recorded casts of over 750ft and have landed a pluss 10ft Tiger Shark. Thanks Deon for your support. Regards Nickaway
