    The Scythe, this is the best rod in my opinion that SixGill makes. Also the best I have used. I'm sure others have some that would compete with it. I'm just referring to what I have used. This is the most sensitive light weight rod with a strong backbone that I've used. It's very hard to explain how good it truely is. It's my go to rod, I have a few of them, but not nearly as many as I want. The one I use most is a 7,3ft med/heavy for texas or flipping jigs between 1/8th ounce to 1/2 ounce. I use it for hard days on the water. When everyone else is dropping ned rigs or dropshot. I use this rod and light small tackle to flip under docks. Or into bushes, heavy grass..just whatever. Trying to get to that place that the other 5 boats that hit this whole before me couldn't get to. Not only can you put the bait in a tight spot, but with this rod...the lightest tick on the line. Or a big fish just sucking the bait in whole and just sitting with it. You know it all. Then the confidence in the hookset, knowing if that fish is in heavy grass and its 8lbs. I can set that hook as hard aa I want and not worry about the rod. It can pull fish and grass out with ease. This is an amazing rod for sure. I can't wait to see what they come out with next.

    Yeah Baby!!!

    Published by fearless5280 on 20th May 2018

    I have been with SixGill since they released their products. I have always been a huge fan! The Scythe 700M is by far the best rod they have produced to date! this rod is very light, super sensitive, the parabolic bend on this rod is amazing, it loads well while casting, and has the back bone to haul in some pigs! This rod is a high performance rod,and if your budget allows I would highly recommend getting one! SixGill products have always been great, and along with their amazing customer service I couldn't be happier with them. Anyone in the market looking to upgrade their arsenal should take a good look at SixGill products! #sixgill4life #sixgillnation

    This is a very nice rod if I had the money I would change all my rods to the line of rods.

    I paired the Scythe and Wraith for an incredibly light combo. The Wraith was smooth as usual but I was very pleased with sensitivity of the Scythe and love the sic guides. This combo has quickly become my favorite setup. SixGill has always had incredible customer service but their equipment is top notch. I will be converting all of my fishing equipment to Sixgill. Give SixGill a try. You won’t regret it!

    Light yet Sturdy

    Published by Burt on 29th Apr 2018

    I’ve only had this out a few times. I have it paired with my left handed Hyperion.

    It’s easy on the muscles especially after constantly throwing and cranking.

    Super product.
