The first thing you notice is the fine diameter of these powerful blanks, the result of Bias ply graphite construction. It produces an ultra-tough yet slim diameter blank with incredible backbone. The power and fast rebound properties of the blank give you maximum lifting power to control and move large fish, keeping constant pressure on them so they never rest and wear down faster. Tough Bias construction, AFTCO roller guides, and an aluminum reel seat with short-curved butt give optimum leverage and power. Ideal for Swordfish. AFTCO Roller/Stripper, 5-3/4 Feet, Extra Heavy, 30-80 Pound.
