Product Description
With relatively fast action, right-or-left hand control, and an elongated grip for two-hand casting, the Riversider Steelhead Spinning Rod easily trolls through saltwater for big game salmon and steelhead. Simply cast your bait to the side of, or behind, your boat, and let the motion of the boat pull the bait through the water! The Riversider's IM7 graphite blank flexes with the weight of the lure, storing energy to propel the lure when the motion of the rod stops. Graphite construction ensures a strong, flexible, and durable rod. The blank's elasticity allows the rod to spring and bend back, increasing the lure speed that is generated in the cast. Thin tube walls make this rod lighter and more sensitive. Stainless steel guides arranged along the underside of the rod to help control the line, while custom tips reduce line wraps and line breakage. The reel seat design keeps the weight of the reel beneath the rod, offering a more comfortable way to fish for extended periods and allowing the rod to be held in the either hand for increased control. Its premium cork handle is light enough to transmit rod vibrations, yet durable enough to last through seasons of saltwater fishing. Blank-through-handle construction adds strength and sensitivity. Built-in deluxe hook keeper folds out of the way when you are fishing. Matte black finish.

          Excellent rod for the money. Worked perfectly for catching Salmon this fall from the Lower Niagara River to the Salmon River in Pulaski. Well built, with a very comfortable handle.

              Comments about Riversider Steelhead Spinning Rod, 86", Medium Heavy:

              This rod is terrible.
              no sensitivity at all
              poorly built with low quality parts
              very uncomfortable feel
              and on top of it all, it broke within 10 minutes of delivery.
              the only reason it got 1 star is because I had to choose one.
