On the surface this may look like any other fishing rod, however it features an integrated accelerometer bite detection technology. The integrated Poletap Computer Controlled Accelerometer Technology detects fish activity without throwing false alerts due to windy conditions or the natural wave of the pole with the water. The bite alert system is built into the rod and gives anglers the ability to adjust the sensitivity of the system with a Hi-Med-Low option. The operation of this system is simple, bait your pole, cast and set it up however you see fit, then test and activate the alert system by pressing down the button and hold the rod still for three seconds. After that, tap the rod and the alert should sound and activate. This alert system will audibly notify anglers when a fish bumps their line allowing you to walk away from your pole without missing a hit. The Tackobox SmartRod features a premium rod blank, and when purchased as a combo comes with 200 yards of 20lb braided line, aluminum spool, 4 precision ball bearing, 6000 series reel, in addition to the bite alert system.
