There are a lot of big powerful rods you can use for halibut fishing. The problem is... they tire you out long before you tire the fish out. That's where our time on the water, talking with charter captains, guides and serious anglers in Alaska & British Columbia, along with fishing every chance we get, really pays off. Is power important? You bet! Is balance important? Yes! Is light weight important? You better believe it! Is it possible to have all three? IT IS NOW! We've always been known for light weight solutions to hard-core fishing situations, but this time we've taken it to the limit with this unbelievably light and powerful stand-up halibut rod. AFTCO Superlight roller stripper guides and tip-top with heavy-duty braced conventional guides team up with a powerful blank and handle system that is balanced to perfection. Now you can relax and enjoy catching those "barn doors" without all the strain and discomfort. You won't believe a rod this light can be so powerful.
