Heres the perfect rod for the avid fisherman who's looking to catch tuna on the surface, and built from the butt up with the highest quality components! We started with four different model eight foot Calstar fast taper composite blanks to fit your needs and built a true Northeast Popping Rod. On the butt end of the rod you will see the gimble with rubber butt cap, complimenting the shrink wrap at the rear of the rod. Moving up you will see we used a Fuji reel seat and an EVA grip for comfort when fighting fish, also matched with Fuji Alconite ceramic guides. This rod does it all, from throwing the lightest lures all the way up to launching the biggest poppers for Yellowfin tunas, Bluefin tunas, Roosters and more!
