Cousins Tackle Rail Rods were created as the long-range model to its popular, American made SE Offshore Series graphite composite rod collection. This new family of rods was created for one purpose, beating big tuna. Cousins' factory composite glass/graphite blanks are outfitted with Super Heavy Duty Fuji BHBNG Silicone Nitride guides, triple wrapped and protected by three coats of slow-cure, UV-resistant finish. Each of these rod models also features an ALPS Centra-Lock machined aluminum reel seat, genuine Hypalon sponge rubber rear grip and heavy-duty black anodized gimbal. The extra-long fore grip features a Rail Duty Non-Slip Rubber grip built to provide superior leverage and withstand the torque, rail dragging and stress that comes with beating giant tuna from a stationary boat. Backed by Cousins' lifetime limited warranty and factory service.
