About NFC PSI Blank Materials and Technology

Our LMX-PSI is often referred to as “high modulus” by other manufacturers, but we know that there are many “high modulus” materials, some higher than others. It’s one of the main reasons we are steering away from talking about modulus in any of our material descriptions. This durable yet sensitive aerospace Toray carbon-fiber offers the best of both worlds. Combining resilience and sensitivity, this material is a crowd-pleaser.

Premium Toray fiber is combined with a proprietary resin system with a unique design spec to drive LMX-PSI. This is quickly becoming a preferred choice due to the perfect balance of weight, performance, and affordability.

    Handles big baits very well! Even in strong current, with big fish on the end!

  2. Christopher Gauvain (verified owner)

    This rod is unbeatable in quality and utility!! As a lure builder, it’s essential to have high quality gear for testing and obviously fishing!! This rod fits me like a glove! If you are in the market for a swimbait rod or one for chucking big a rigs, this is your winner!!

    This rod is an excellent swimbait rod for the given rating, however it has atributes that make it perform well for Alabama rigs as well as 10XD sized crankbaits as well. Don’t let the swimbait title fool you, it can do more.

    I picked one of these up for my smaller treble hook swimbaits, and it’s worked out better than expected. This rod has an incredible parabolic bend to it and I myself keeping fish pinned much better than my last couple swimbait rods. If you’re looking for something to throw your Tiny Klashes, smaller glides (chad shad, shadlittle, slyguy gill glides, etc) then you’ll be very happy with this.

    Just rating the fit and finish as excellent. On the water review to follow…

    Great rod! Great price!

  7. Billy (verified owner)

    The rod is and feel super light, feel even lighter than my 7ft rod that I currently use. Top to bottom was flawless. Very happy with the purchase and definitely will order another one in the future. A++ for a quality built rod.

  8. Evan (verified owner)

    This rod has been a blast to fish. It’s handled all of my wake baits and 90% of my glides I throw. For anyone wanting a lighter big bait setup I’d put my name behind this rod.

  9. Ashton Milan (verified owner)

    My first actual swimbait rod and the long handle took some getting used to. I WILL NEVER go back! No other rod feels as comfortable in my hands now. For an 8′ rod this thing is incredibly sensitive. The craftsmanship is amazing. The rod is very parabolic. Ive got the Med/Hev and my only ” SMALL” complaint about this rod is, that I have a little trouble turning bigger fish. Everything else is perfect. Will be ordering a heavier version soon!!

  10. Sonny S. (verified owner)

    Ordered a MH Omega and received the rod super quick. The rod is really light weight and the craftsmanship is amazing. Super satisfied with it so far. Will be ordering another rod in the near future!

  11. Bill Sikora (verified owner)

    The rod is awesome looking and the sensitivity of this particular model is great for smaller lighter soft plastic swimbaits. Definitely impressed with all aspects of this rod. The quality is amazing!

  12. Jason pfutzenreuter (verified owner)

    amazing quality.

  13. Sophie-Lynn (verified owner)

    Best swimbait rods hands down.

    Love the new fish scale grip too. Much more sticky than the other one?

  14. Zachary (verified owner)

    This rod is awesome. It is super light for being an 8’ rod and very sensitive. I’m new to swim bait fishing but this definitely won’t be my last Omega rod.

  15. Alejandro Nieves Jr (verified owner)

    Super light rod and smooth, definitely is my favorite swimbait rod so far

  16. Zach Lancaster (verified owner)

    Hella awesome rod!! Will buy another!!

  17. Mike Laughlin (verified owner)

    Have not yet used the rod, however, straight away I am thoroughly impressed with the build quality and feel of what I am sure will be an amazing performer in my swimbait rod lineup.

  18. Chris M. (verified owner)

    Im glad I went with this rod. I was looking for something to throw small swimbaits. I think i got more than what i ask for. I have no problem flipping or pitching baits under cover. The blank is crisp and responsive. Lure control is also more sensitive, you havto to be gentle than you would, usually, when working a lure. Thats a plus. Less work means less fatigue. The load is has the right parabolic bend I look for; which is between fast and moderate. I would definitely use this as a daily out of all the swimbait rods I use, Im very optimistic about this setup, only time will tell if I break my PB.

    Fantastic rod. Light as a feather. Already caught 20+ fish on it including several 6+ lb fish and rod handled them easily.

  20. Eugene McCracken (verified owner)

    Best swimbait rod in the game

  21. Alexander Blunt (verified owner)

    Perfect rod for smaller swimbaits in the 1-4 oz range. Excellent craftsmanship.

  22. Anthony Flores (verified owner)

  23. Davis (verified owner)

    Rod is a unreal in every way

  24. Justen Jenkins (verified owner)

    New favorite rod!!!🤫🤫🤫

  25. Reagan Walton (verified owner)

    Amazed at how accurate and great the action of the rod is. Keeps fish pinned on the trebles beautiful. Actually managed to keep 2 fish pinned at once. Quality ✊🏽

  26. Quintin Fortes (verified owner)

    The Omega 8’ MH was my first of many Leviathans. These sticks are addicting and hard to put down because they just feel RIGHT! I fish everything from light baits like the TK all the way up to the K9 (little over 3oz) on my MH. Since buying it I have bought the Alpha SoftSwim and an Omega XH. Honestly, I could rave about these sticks all day, but if you know Justin and the Leviathan crew, you know you’re getting quality craftsmanship, light weight and versatility in a stick!

    Don’t hesitate to pull the trigger on these sticks because you will miss out!

  27. Zachary K. (verified owner)

    Rod is everything I could have asked for. It has great components, it’s lightweight, and it looks amazing. It fishes amazing. Simple shopping with great customer service. Thanks

  28. James Haulbrooks (verified owner)

    One of my new favorite rods for medium to light Swimbaits. The quality of it is unmatched. Holding It feels great. Light balanced, and well crafted. Paired it with a Calcutta Conquest 200 DC. Highly recommend if you are looking to add to your arsenal or even getting your first swim-bait rod.
