The bread-and-butter East Coast kingfish rod. With perfect live-bait action, it features an extra-fast tip with a medium power, which is perfect for handling smaller menhaden and pogies. The extra-fast tip transitions into stiff mid and butt sections that help steer fish around outboard brackets and around the bow pulpits of SKA-style boats.
This rod has the same extra-fast action as the TLC70MKA, but it has a bit more power for destinations with big fish, such as the Florida Keys and Gulf Coast, or areas where large baits, such as rainbow runners and big blue runners, are preferred.
The No. 1 custom rod requested by tournament kingfish anglers. The 7'6" rod is deployed in a T-top rod holder, which acts as an outrigger to spread live baits and allows fish to pull line directly from the reel for smooth impact absorption and keeps small hooks in place. It also eliminates the need for outrigger release clips, which fish can sometimes feel.
This rod has the action Florida West Coast kingfish anglers and commercial rod-and-reel kingfish anglers prefer. The parabolic action is useful when heaving fish into the boat.
