Like the name says, these rods are built tough, with solid tips that resist the rod-snapping stress of fishing tough saltwater conditions. Constructed of graphite-enhanced composite for maximum action, sensitivity and strength, these rods feature a blank-through-butt design that lets the angler put the muscle to hard-fighting saltwater species like snook, dorado, jacks and grouper. Aluminum-oxide guides are polished smooth to protect both monofilament and braided lines. Reel seat is made of stainless steel and graphite with durable EVA foam and diamond shrink grips. High-gloss white finish.
