The I-SLIDE 262T is designed for a wide, meandering “S” swimming motion with a steady retrieve, luring in targets with its nonchalant action. However, the 262T truly comes alive with downward snaps of the rod tip. With proper slack line control, the 262T will break left/right and glide a massive 2ft, showing off its carefully sculpted profile to roaming monsters.
Equipped with double split-rings so trophies can’t gain enough leverage to throw hooks during the fight, the I-SLIDE 262T will bring your hard-won bite home.
Recommended hook settings vary with set ups, and the size and species of target fish.
I-SLIDE 262T comes equipped with durable thick-gauge hooks to handle most applications. Please note that while replacing with thinner gauge hooks will increase penetration, any changes to hooks and split rings will affect the sink rate. Therefore, we recommend using weight strips when necessary.
I-SLIDE series require straight tail to perform proper swimming action.
Please take care to protect the tail when not in use, either by removing for storage, or safeguarding in other ways.
I-SLIDE 262T is tuned to slow sink in water temperature between 50F – 59F.
As water temperatures rise, the I-SLIDE 262T will change into a suspend/slow-floating type.
We recommend applying weight strips when necessary, or adjusting hook/split ring settings.
Please note the I-SLIDE 262T is carefully tuned for horizontal swimming posture. When changing weight settings, please take care to add weight evenly and keep I-SLIDE horizontal in the water. This will allow maximum performance.
