The superbly tactile the THE ARTIST S 2402 MH DARK ELF is fast becoming the new go-to rod in our ASHURA range for bank and boat sea bass, zander and pike anglers. The blank is the perfect length, power and versatility to control and cast surface and sinking plugs and a range of weighted soft baits. This rod keeps you in touch with your bait whether pulling lures back fast just under the surface or methodically bounced off the bottom. 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 and slender FUJI TORZITE TITANIUM K guides. These eliminate 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 gives you a stronger grip when playing big fish. Supplied in a signature rod bag and a rigid Cordura protective tube.
