For added comfort, the Squall II Boat rods feature the Triangular-shaped EVA foregrip to reduce rod rotation while under pressure. Heavy duty graphite (on 20-50lb model) and machined aluminum reel seats (other models) keep a secure grip on the reel, while the gimbal provides added strength and a secure connection during the fight. The slick butt prevents the rod butt getting damaged in the rod holder, while the bent-butt models have a short aluminum bent butt, making them also very suitable for fighting a big fish stand-up.1 Piece tubular glass blank construction with solid glass tip.
