This is the lightest of our two-handed "beach rods", designed to cast big flies as far as you can imagine. Whether it's the sand, the rocks or wading in the surf, a two hand rod will help increase your casting distance. It will handle large streamers, up to 5 inches, and functions best utilizing heads of 35 to 40-feet, in the 400-450 grain range, including saltwater, striper and shooting tapers. We dual rate the rods - both in the standard line sizes as well as grains to give anglers a better perspective of the power rating for their specific needs. Built with plenty of power toig stripers, bluefish and drum.
