New Rods From Rapala

SIDEBAR_rapala-axiomFishing season is in full swing — and if you’re looking for a new spinning or casting rod, check out these offerings from Rapala.

Rapala Axiom Spinning Combo

Try Rapala’s new Axiom Spinning combos. These great new combos feature lightweight, sensitive graphite rods with blank-through-handle construction, split-grip cork, graphite reel seats and virtually friction-free eyes matched with aluminum-frame reels that feature Sure-Set anti-reverse, nine sealed stainless ball bearings and large line capacities. The combo comes in 6’6” or 7’ lengths (two-piece), medium or medium/heavy power, fast-action with line-weight ratings of 4- to 12- or 6- to 17-pound test. A great spinning setup for larger fish — such as trout or char.

If you’re targeting big pike, walleye and char this summer, check out the fantastic R-Type 6’11” one-piece casting rod from Rapala. With medium-heavy power and fast action, this incredibly lightweight (5.28-ounce) rod is perfect for casting lures from 3/8- to one-ounce, and rigging up with line weights between 10- and 20-pound-test. (I said it was for big fish!) As with all R-Type rods, it features a high-modulus HM-45 graphite blank for extreme sensitivity and lightness — along with durability — a high-density EVA handle, Fuji guides and reel seat, blank-through-handle construction, custom hook keeper and a silk-screened cloth carry bag. Truly, these premium rods from Rapala are in a class of their own. MSRP $110.
