Cabela’s TXS-V The TXS-V is one of eight casting and four spinning models from Cabela’s, each of which was engineered for a specific bass-fishing technique. The rods feature Fuji SiC guides. Casting rods have blank-through reel-seat design and the Fuji SBS spinning rod seats feature no exposed screw-down threads. Our test baitcast model was designed as a fast, 7-foot rod for spinnerbaits and all-around bass rod. Mission accomplished, our test team agreed. The rod was deemed well-suited for a variety of other species, too, from northern pike to nearshore saltwater fish. Despite its capability for handling heavy lures, this rod was judged very user-friendly. Our reviewers praised its casting accuracy and grip comfort, too. Besides being hailed for its stellar performance, the mid-priced rod was judged not merely well-finished, but ‘gorgeous.’
