Teaser rod features an AFTCO swivel top and stripper with an 80 lb. class detachable curved butt. Measuring less than 4 feet, our Teaser Rod keeps your teaser lines well out of the way of your main lines and are easy to "stash" once the lines have been cleared. Melton Deep Drop/Dredge Rods are built with AFTCO guides, tops, and detachable aluminum curved butts. They are fitted with an AFTCO swivel top to keep the line from wrapping.

They are designed for small boat fishermen that leave their rods in the rod holder, when fighting monster ahi tuna and marlin.
