Review of the XST1383F from Float Fishing Connection
“…I was able to bank the fish with great efficiency and fully understand the dynamics of Batson’s proprietary blend of RX8 and RX7 graphite.  Fast, but light in the tip and all business from the mid to the butt section of the blank.  Impressive!”

Review of RX8 XST1143F from Michigan-Sportsman
“After fishing these rods the past weekend, I can say without a doubt, these are the nicest blanks I have ever used, I like them better than any GLX or any other high end rod I have ever used, period. The Alps guides that were suggested by Batson are way better than the Fuji Ti SIC guides I have always used religiously in the past. By far the nicest guides I have ever used.”
