Handling & Cautions:

  • Tightening the Joint Pieces: Ensure the joint pieces are tightened (by twisting) from time to time while fishing. Avoid making them too tight to take apart. If they get loose, the rod may break while casting or fighting a fish. Note: The rod may get loose if you are constantly casting. We highly advise you to double-check from time to time. 
  • Avoiding Damage: Be careful not to drop or hit the rod/blank against a hard surface or object. This can cause the rod to break while fishing due to the carbon fiber’s susceptibility to cracking from collision. 
  • Handling Fish: Do not swing or bring the fish up to the boat with the rod alone. This can put too much strain on the rod.
  • Touching the Tip Section: Avoid touching the tip section while a fish is on. The tension can break the rod. 
Remember, proper care and handling of your fishing rod can significantly increase its lifespan and performance. Happy fishing!
