This balanced combo offers corrosion resistance, sensitivity and strength. 

Offering sensitivity and strength, this balanced combo features a 7' medium-light action carbon fiber rod (rated for 8-17 pound test line) paired with a "Size 40" Custom Inshore Black Spinning Reel. Lightweight carbon fiber construction makes the rod sensitive enough to telegraph even the subtlest of taps during a retrieve, but what sets it apart (from all-spiral-wound rods) is Ultimate Flex Reinforcement (UFR) technology, which consists of 4-5 layers of long strand fibers in the tip, which when the rod is loaded distributes the force over a greater range of fiber for increased strength and less chance of breakage. Rod features include traditional cork grips and corrosion resistant stainless steel guides with aluminum oxide inserts to minimize line friction for longer casts.

About the Reel

The "Size 40" reel can be adjusted for up to 13 pounds of drag, which together with the medium-light action rod works great for inshore species such as snook, redfish or on the West Coast, calico bass. Noteworthy is the reels ported design, which creates "cyclonic" airflow, that causes the reel to quickly shed water and dry fast—which minimizes the chance of corrosion. The five-to-one gear ratio results in a fast 30" line retrieval for every turn of the handle. Outstanding features also include all-graphite construction, which reduces weight and makes this reel very corrosion resistant.
