Matt Newman: A member of the Big Bait Posse and a very well known swimbait angler nationally Matt has co-designed some of the best selling swimbaits on the market. Matt has also had a hand in designing swimbait rods previously with Fig Rig. Those rods sold very well and helped many anglers catch their personal best. With iRods Matt has taken those great rods and improved them “ten-fold” including releasing 3 different swimbait rods. There is now a perfect rod for everything from that 4 to 5 inch paddle tail up to a 15 inch giant swimbaits.
