Lightning Crashes and the cast flies by with the speed of a flash. We are calling these rods XXFast because that's what they are. Fast as Lightning. Designed with linear high modulus carbon making the blanks very strong, very light and very fast. The six piece construction designed for the traveling angler. These are rods to put the hammer to and bend it if you can. The four piece collection starts with a 5 weight because to go lighter would be counter productive to tippet strength. These are not 7X tippet rods. They are big fish rods to be used with reasonable tippet strength. Great for swinging Chrome, Silver and Striped Bass.
