Constructed utilizing the latest carbon composite technology, Makaira rods deliver lightweight, easy-handling offshore action that retain the power and durability of traditional E-glass rod blanks. The extensive selection of technique-specific actions utilize the finest components for their intended designs, including: ALPS deep press 316 stainless steel guide frames, hard Zirconium guide inserts, custom designed ALPS reel seats, ALP roller guides with large knot clearance, and much more as you explore the live-bait, deckhand style rods, popping rods and IGFA straight butt and bent butt trolling models. Heavy duty and easily maintained shrink tube grip complete most models, while the premium abalone inserts decorate every rod for a look that has been previously reserved for custom builders.

Great rod for the money

Been using two of these rods for a couple seasons now for sharking and trolling for tuna. Couldn't be happier with the performance at this price. Reel seat and roller guides are top notch and the abalone looks great. This rod made quick work of dozens of sharks this passed season including a 248 lb mako .
