Built as an astounding 8-piece rod, it will pack in roughly half the space of most other rods. With a smooth blend of action and power these rods will handle all fishing conditions. Features a medium-fast action, dark green blank, black anodized reel seat, stainless guides with a ceramic stripper. Comes in a cloth covered case.
