The Inshore Series II Rods are unique thanks in part to Seeker's approach of combining glass with graphite fibers in the butt section of the blank. The result is a rod with unequaled durability and strength throughout its length, plus increased stiffness and power - all at 30% weight reduction. Seeker is excited to announce its latest, cutting-edge fishing rod line called Blue Lightning Inshore Series II. Aptly named for its new blue tinted epoxy coating that lights up like a blue lightning bolt in your hand when it's out in the sun. This new line of rods uses all the latest advancements in fishing rod technology, starting with the innovative blue lightning blanks wrapped with the newest holographic thread which also adds to the lightning effect. The guides are made of a titanium frame with blue zircon rings. Zirconia - the hardest guide material used today - offers resistance to nicks, dings or wearing marks from the new super lines. The cork handles have been integrated with EVA, a material that feels like hypalon but is made of advanced material resistant to UV damage and much lighter than cork. These new EVA handles are made in lightning blue to maintain theme. A bulb-style butt cap covers the end of the rod making for a much more comfortable feel when hundreds of casts and countless battles lay ahead. Blue Lightning Inshore Series II rods range in lengths from 5 3/4 to 9 feet. Truly state-of-the-art, these rods are available in casting, spinning as well as with lightweight rollers.You can use them for very soft action requiring light line finesse to those demanding a heavy, fast line to pull a fish out of rocks and kelp.
