sixgill cypress bass fishing rod handle

These are very clean rods. From the 24-ton Japanese Toray blended carbon blanks to the very fine 10 1/4-inch split cork grips. The rods are light, sensitive and really strong. I they are very comfortable to palm all day even with baits you wind constantly. The Fuji reel seat holds the reel tight to the blank and the thru-touch construction lets you feel every thump of a spinnerbait blade. I paired it with a Daiwa Tatula reel and 17-pound Seaguar InvizX line and it target cast and bomb cast a 1/2-ounce spinnerbait equally well.
