Aptly named for the new blue-tinted epoxy coating that reflects blue light in the sun. Blanks are S-glass, with graphite fibers in the butt section for increased stiffness and power. Guides are titanium framed with blue zircon rings. Zircon is the hardest guide material you'll find, for resistance to nicks, dings and wear from braided line. Handles are EVA and the butt cap is bulbed for comfort when you're making hundreds of casts.
