The original two-piece factory blank for this rod (11ft 6in) has been cut down from the bottom to 9ft 3in. As a result, the rod is now roughly 75/25 split (take a look at the photos), and has a definite one-piece feel and no stiffness. It loads effortlessly and casts very far. It was built with Fuji SSV alconite guides (six + tip), Fuji reel seat (distance from butt to reel seat center is now about 21.5 inches), cork split handle with Poly Seal, and high epoxy finish for durability.This rod has unmatchable sensitivity and bite detection. It is sensitive enough to get you even small snappers and whiting, and strong enough to handle big blues and big stripers. This is a very versatile rod. Super lightweight but extremely powerful.
There is no striper out there that this rod cannot handle! These models are virtually impossible to find in the secondary market.At the same time, waiting time to order factory direct is endless as they have been horribly backlogged for years now (I have had such experience: I ordered a finished rod from them in 2020 and had to wait six full months to receive it). Take a look at the photos: what you see is what you get!
