The rod is durable. It is made of high-end graphite that offers both sensitivity and resilience that you need in those tough fighting moments with big fish like bass and musky.

Main Usage

NTx-S-703MH 3 Pc Nomad Xpress Boat Spin Rod- Okuma has been specially designed to offer the best service to the traveling angler. The rods come in three pieces that can easily be disassembled and fitted back at the angler’s convenience.

The rod is a medium heavy type; which means it can be applied in a wide range of fishing situations. It is highly sensitive and offers just about the same level performance as single piece rods. The rod also provides great controlling features and stability. It is fitted with the trending non-slip rubber gimbals for that extra steadiness during fights with fish.

It is one of the best rods you can use for bass and other big fish hunting missions. The fact that it can be stuffed into a bag on the go makes it a choice rod for many anglers.

Product Features


The rod is a medium heavy type that gives you that moderate action that suits nearly all fishing environments and targets. The medium action rod can handle both small and large fish. It flexes in the top half end and allows a progressive flex for good control and fun in the fishing endeavor.

The rod has been designed to cater for a wide range of fishing environments including fresh and salt water surroundings. It provides the sensitivity that an angler needs to react fast to fish biting on the bait or playing below. I was also impressed with the fast and powerful hook setting that the rod allows.


Since the rod is made of graphite, you can count on it for great strength. It is not just about the resilience; the pole has been tuned to make sure that the power that it offers can be controlled effectively. So you have the comfortable but ever strong grips that come from EVA.

You have both rear and fore grip handles that will suit you in both dry and rainy conditions. Since it is a medium heavy rod, the flex is spread over a longer distance along its length.

Apart from the steady grip, the rod is also fitted with non-slip rubber gimbals that make it just what you need in the spur of the moment when bass fish have engaged the hook.

The rod is tuned for travel fishing. It is a three piece pole that allows you to split it into small units and reassemble easily into the functional tool it, is in fishing big fish.

It comes with aluminum oxide inserts that help to give it balance but as you already know that aluminum is just about the lightest of metals used in fishing tools and equipment. Although the rod is significantly light, it can accommodate an amazingly wide range of line types; including mono and braided ones.

Another important feature that has been deliberately designed to make the rod a lot lighter than other poles in its league is the split handle cork.

Sensitivity, Recovery, and Brittleness:

The rod is fitted with the patent European spigot ferrule connection that makes it feel as if it is a single piece. It is just about the most sensitive multiple piece rod that you have for travel fishing needs.

The medium action makes it recover fast after casting. It is a stiff rod that offers both high sensitivity and steady recovery. The rod has its flex spread along the top half. It is a progressive flex that is meant to manage stress on the tip end of the rod. So there is little chance that this rod will break.


NTx-S-703MH 3 Pc Nomad Xpress Boat Spin Rod- Okuma is a portable rod that is suitable for travel boat fishing. It is light and offers easy portability. It can be easily fitted into the travel bags and carried comfortably.

The rod is strong and powerful too. You are offered a waterproof bag that makes it great for all-weather fishing adventures including storage. The pole is strong and can be used for a wide range of fishing preferences and environments. It can catch both big bass and relatively smaller types with ease.
