These lightweight 96% graphite, 100% tubular two-piece rods pack surprising backbone and sensitivity. The 20" EVA foam handle adds more balance and feels 25% lighter, and they have eight, single-footed Fuji® guides.
I've had the 8' rod for about 12 yrs now. I rarely use any of my other rods. I use a small Pflueger president reel with it and either 6 or 8 lb Vanish and have landed everything from 2 lbs crappies to 40 lb blue cats with it. The only problem I've had with it is, fitting it in my minivan and my nephew stepping on it and breaking it last week. I'll be replacing it with another one.
