The linecounter(measures in feet) will help your accuracy and efficiency when getting your bait to the right depth. It's all graphite construction with multi-point ant-reverse, large line capacity(holds 10 color leadcore + leader and backing) and oversize handle will give you all the power you need for that next big fight. The rod features a strong tubular E-Glass blank through handle construction, gimbal butt and locking-ring reel seat. The handle was designed with high density EVA for a long-lasting comfortable grip.
