    The Gravitate is part of the new Temple Reef X series of rods. It is not a cheaper version of the Levitate, as it's an altogether different blank, albeit still a dedicated slow pitch rod. We're still testing them, but my initial run with the G2 and G3 was pretty great. Jig weight ranges are comparable to the Levitate, so a 68-1 Levitate correlates to a G1, etc. Gravitate comes in G1, G2 and G3. No zero and no four, yet.

    Initial impressions is that there's not another rod on the market that can touch their performance at a MSRP $319. I think pre-orders are for $280.

    The main difference that I felt was that the Gravitate bends a little further into the blank than the Levitate, and it's sweet spot for depth is probably between 100ft and 500ft. It still performed, but when out in 500ft + it did not have the same recoil. That could probably be remedied with a G4 if one was ever made. But, for the price point, and for the vast majority of anglers, I think that this is (or should be) the new industry standard of introductory slow pitch jigging rods. It's going to open the door for a lot of people to get into the game.

    If you're fishing Pulley Ridge, you should consider the Levitate 68-4 if you are fishing jigs heavier than 400g in deeper than 500ft of water.

    68-1, 2 or 3. Varies with conditions. I've mostly used the 2 and 3 there. Wouldn't need the 4.
