Rippin Lips Stalker Bumpin' Rod (BLUE)

Sale price Price $129.99 Regular price Unit price  per 

The STALKER series bumping rod designed to feel every nook and cranny, every bottom change and every potential snag as you walk your bait through Big Whisker territory - and we offer to you without breaking the bank!


The Stalker is an IM7 Carbon blank, which is a perfect and proven compromise between sensitivity and durability. After decades of combined bumping by our staff, we understand the need for a sensitive and durable blank with a fast action. The rod is 7'3" long, wrapped in 9 SS guides plus the tip top, and fast action is specifically tuned for the needs of bumping. 

To add even more strength, the Stalker comes in a Rippin Lips exclusive carbon fiber weave overlay along the lower backbone. This adds backbone strength without adding excessive weight.


The reel seat has been positioned with care so that the rod is well-balanced using a variety of common sized reels. A balanced bumping rod reduces fatigue and is comfortable all day long - a critical feature as we all know!


The polymer grips are top quality. Polymer grips have shown to be as sensitive as cork and as durable as EVA. The tactile feel and grip on this bumping rod is exceptional. Top that of with some custom graphics infused into these grips, and you have yourself a bumping rod that not only performs killer compared to the competition, but also look fantastic too!


Two years of testing and we think you will like what we came up with. Strong, sensitive, a fast tip, and very good looking. Those first three qualities are a must for a bumping rod; but with how good this rod looks, we thought we'd give you all four. Order one today!
