Constructed of IM8 Advanced Modulus Graphite, Air IM8 rods are lightweight and have a sensitive blank that provides the ultimate in feel with enough power to land big fish with ease. In addition to upgraded graphite, the rod guides have also been beefed up. Titanium-coated SS304 guides are found on all Air IM8 spinning and casting models for increased durability and abrasion resistance when fishing with braided line, these rods are perfect for casting to big Steelhead or trolling for giant lake trout. With concept guide spacing that improves sensitivity and maximizes blank strength the Air IM8 gives anglers the length, power and performance they need for demanding conditions.
