EXCEED SINGLE HAND The lighter single handed rods have collected inspiration and action curves from the popular Fario Flyrods, a smooth, yet powerful action that accepts a wide variety of casting strokes and styles. The 9'6 and 10' rods have evolved from several sample generations and revisions. The final result is rods that have a character of their own fast, but yet offering a surprising and very positive "Slingshot" feeling during the cast. This will be highly noticeable also during any kind of Speycast.A new non-linear taper cut has enhanced the strength of the critical spots and at the same time maintained a lively, continuous action throughout the blank. The rods are finished in a discreet deep green color with dark green wrappings. All rods have PB gun smoke stripper guides and light weight hard chrome snake guides. Individual rod identification markings on each part double as rod alignment marks when rod is put together. Exceed rods are finished with the philosophy that less is more. We have reversed the clock and fitted them with no-nonsense, extra hard anodized metal parts in the reel seats. Single handed rods up to line weight 6 have beautiful wooden inserts while line weight 7 and higher rods have all metal reel seats. Fighting butts are "GL Hard EVA Style" (same as on Reaction and RS V2 rods) and make for a cool, practical and comfortable butt. All handles are made from high grade Portuguese cork. Rod tube and rod bag are included in the price.
