Our #17 rod has a line rating of 50lb to 100lb. It is one step heavier than our #16 and is primarily used for catching larger sharks and for deep water bottom fishing. This is a great rod for hand cranking Warsaw Grouper or for stand up electric reel fishing. It is popular among commercial fisherman on the East Coast of Florida. This rod comes standard with a nylon gimble, an HD Fuji hooded reel seat, and HD Batson boat guides. We recommend pairing this rod with Shimano Tiagra 50w and Tyrnos 50w reels as well as Avet 50w and 30w reels for boat and land based shark fishing. The standard electric reels that we recommend are the Shimano Beastmaster and Forcemaster 9000 models and Daiwa Tanacom 1000 series reels. We back this rod with our one year warranty against manufacturer's defects.
Our conventional rods are available for immediate shipping in Blue & Silver and Black & Gold. Call to order other available color combinations 727-393-2102.
