Built with the hardcore angler in mind, these rods carry a stiff backbone for fighting hard running fish while an easy loading tip allows for quick and precise casts. Mangrove rods are finished with superior components to maximize each rod’s potential, and each rod is subjected to our TiCr proprietary coating process which gives the blank added durability in the face of errant flies and untimely nicks and scratches. Our Tactical Guides are braided line and saltwater safe, which can’t break or pop out like traditional ceramic guides. The unique chestnut color blank minimizes glare and features a full wells grip. Cleverly machined hook keepers are located on each side of the aluminum up-locking reel seat. All rods come with fighting butts.
