The THE ARTIST S 225 M BLACK OPS has a light but powerful blank and excels in any situation needing precision casting, sensitivity and a reserve of power. A great looking elegant rod designed for light to medium lure fishing for perch, asp, zander and sea bass in particular. Think Weightless, Linear, Light Texas Rig, Light Jig Head, Heavy Drop Shot, etc. Sea bass and asp anglers will appreciate the perfect balance between length, power and responsiveness to cast and work plugs (surface, minnow), soft lures with a NITRO SHAD 90, small casting jigs, RUNNER BLADE 90, etc. This THE ARTIST is built on a top quality X5 blank incorporating prepreg carbon set at three different angles to reduce weight and increase responsiveness without sacrificing power. Fitted with light FUJI TORZITE TITANIUM K guides. These guides cut out any risk of frap-ups, add distance to every cast and help your lines last longer. The VSS reel seat helps work baits and jigs and give you a stronger grip when playing big fish. Supplied in a signature rod bag and a rigid Cordura protective tube.
