High density graphite with a thick-walled, thin-diameter blank gives an even bend throughout the rod curve. This gives steady and even pressure against the fish. Like a modern hunting bow flexes as you pull back, power is generated evenly giving unrelenting lifting power. Fuji silicon nitride or alconite concept guides and Fuji or Stuart reel seats convey this awesome power from the reel. These rods are a perfect match for the powerful drags on the light weight powerful conventional and spinning reels now on the market. Unrelenting rods for unrelenting reels whether flat lining for yellowtail snapper, trolling for yellow fin tuna or casting to huge tarpon there is a Paraflex rod for you.

Paraflex LT Boat rods are lighter in weight and have a faster taper than the series original boat spinning rods. Models feature Fuji K-guides and comfortable EVA grips. Proven Paraflex power makes these rods a much desired addition to the series.

A $7.00 oversize packaging charge applies to this item as it ships in a long heavy duty tube to protect your items. This fee will still apply when discount shipping coupons are used.

7ft X-Heavy
This rod is descent for what it is. I have it paired with a Saragosa 10000. It is well balanced and I get good casting distance with 1-3oz on the line. I tested the strength when I first got it by dead lifting my dog's crate that weighs in around 15lbs. I would be confident battling large fish without worry of snapping the blank. The reason for 3 stars is the guide sizing doesn't make sense to me. The first guide from the reel is a 40mm and the second is a 25mm then from there the transitions are good until you reach the tip. The size difference is only for "looks" and to keep the price in the $200 range. I would rather the 40 be a 30mm and replace the tip guide (with the extra money) to a more K style guide. The tip guide is my other complant. Star advertises the K series guides but the tip guide is lacking in the smooth K style. I'm pretty sure it's the Fuji all purpose guide and if the 40mm guide was replaced with the 30mm and the tip replaced with the more tangle-free Fuji MG or MN guide the cost would stay the same and look better.
ProsStrong Light weight Balanced Good craftmenship
ConsChoice of guides could be better. Advertised to have tangle-free guides but the tip guide isn't one. Should advertise 89% tangle-free guides! No shame in that!

Great boat rod
Extremely light and versatile. Perfect boat rod. Throws light to heavy offerings and has great backbone. Want to replace all my boat rods with this. K guides a huge bonus. Can't go wrong here.

My girlfriend bought me a Penn BTLII8000 Battle II Spinning Reel from tackledirect.com, for my birthday last year. I normally go surf/rock fishing with this reel on a 12 ft. surf rod. I've been looking to get a boat rod for an upcoming trip, hopefully to target tarpon and possibly kingfish. My question is would this Star SGB70M Paraflex Spinning Boat Rod go with my Penn BTLII8000 Battle II Spinning Reel? If not, any recommendations?

That rod would go well for that reel for the species that you are targeting. If you need to match up a specific model rod to the reel, feel free to give us a call or email and we should be able to match you up to the perfect one.
