Enter the Vexan 8' 6” Inshore Spinning Rod, a game-changer in the world of musky fishing.


The Vexan Inshore Spinning Rod is part of the inshore series and is a medium-heavy spinning rod. It's specifically designed for conventional spring downsized musky presentations, making it an ideal musky rod, especially when fishing something smaller is what the early season calls for. Its compatibility with a 4000 series spinning reel allows for smoother casts and impressive distances, while the light tip prevents the stiffness typically associated with musky spinning rods.


Borrowing from the salt life to bring a level of finesse to lighter and midsize musky offerings, the 8'6" MH TI Inshore spinning rod was built to handle the toughest fish in salt that require a less intrusive presentation.
