The GSX Elite was built to not only perform better than other rods, but also to look good while doing it. This rod is founded on a 40-ton Japanese Toray carbon performance blank, giving you the sensitivity that every angler is seeking. Gander constructed these blanks to have soft tips that load up fast so you can cast further and set hooks harder. Custom handle and carbon-thread inlays from evolve are exclusive to Elite rods and comfortably put your fingers on the blank no matter how you hold the rod. Evolve N.E.R.D. Guides with titanium frames are 20% lighter and have Nano-coated aluminum rings for superior hardness, so you can cast further and fish longer. One-year 100% Gander Guarantee.
