Rogue GP Offshore rod blanks are 5/D designs that use three types of material: Linear graphite is used for stiffness, and power, woven graphite cloth is there for lightweight strength, and a fiberglass mat for grueling, rail fighting, durability. The woven graphite is used on the outside layers, which also gives the rod a distinctive look. The Power/Strength/Weight benefits of this composite-balanced blank design are unequaled. The all saltwater design set uses Pac Bay Heavy Duty Boat Rod Guides with Hialoy rings and TICH Titanium coated stainless frames on most rods. And the extra fast actions let you Feel the bite.A $7.00 oversize packaging charge applies to this item as it ships in a long heavy duty tube to protect your items.
