These durable and light weight graphite blanks are best described as the “Work Horse” series, and features a very powerful mid and butt strength combined with a fast, responsive tip flex.

Although these blanks make great all-around freshwater rods for Largemouth, Smallmouth, and Peacock Bass, they are also great crossover blanks for many inshore and nearshore saltwater applications. Plus, there are plenty of cool colors available.
