Surfcaster's Journal Review

Surfcaster's Journal Review

The Surfcaster's Journal just released a great review of our SRF110C3 blank.  Custom rod maker Lou Caruso is featured in the video. Lou came to us with the idea of a combination blank that had one handle and two interchangeable tip sections with completely different actions.  This "combo rod" covers a wide range of surf casting applications, and it has been very well received by rod makers and fishermen.  

Each tip section was dialed in with input from field testing before our SRF110C3 blank was released.  One tip section features a Carbon Fiber and S-Glass composite construction; it has Medium power and a very parabolic Moderate action.  The other tip section is constructed completely of Carbon Fiber and gives the rod Medium-Heavy power and a faster Mod-Fast action.
