A continued quest for the perfect rod for dock shooting lead us to the SharpShooter Deluxe 6. This rod has been field tested by our pro staff for the last year. The one piece blank is made of extra stiff 98% graphite that provides longer and more accurate �shooting� of jigs as small as 1/64. . . The micro tip eyelet reduces line wiggle. The handle is made of Portuguese cork and has a fixed reel seat and touch system to provide superior feel for the lightest of bites. Dyna Flo guides for smooth line flow. Hook keeper. Though designed for dock shooting, this is an excellent all around spinning rod that matches well with our PRO100 reel.
