Undoubtedly the ASQ 1090-4 is the ultimate rod for permit, or most fish that average 10 to 20 pounds.
The Asquith series is the culmination of global cooperation in design, materials, and manufacturing techniques. Built on Shimano?s proprietary Spiral X platform, the Asquith boasts superb power transfer from tip to hand, quick recovery, and increased sensitivity. Designed by world casting champion Steve Rajeff, the Asquith is an exploratory step into the future of rod manufacturing technology. With fast actions, generous power levels, titanium guides, and exceptionally light swing weight, all rods in the series excel in fishing situations where developing high line speed and making precise casts means success.
