From trout to tarpon and everything in between, our Salt Striker Inshore Rods offer lengths and actions that are proven to produce from Texas to the Carolinas. 100% high-modulus graphite construction reduces the overall weight of these rods and provides strength, sensitivity and optimum performance. To improve on these rods, we've outfitted them with Batson's new SS316 guides, made from high-grade stainless steel for better corrosion resistance. And we included premium cork grips for improved sensitivity. Actions are tailored for everything from popping corks with bait and finessing plastics to cranking plugs and topwater baits. Plus, there are models with the backbone and strength to land inshore monsters like tarpon, snook and permit. Graphite reel seats.
