One of the most innovative trolling rods on the market, Star's Paraflex Standup rods use jigging rod blank technology to create the lightest standup rods ever! Built on a beefed-up jigging blank, they are affixed with aluminum gimbals and powerbutts, offshore reel seats, trolling-style foregrips, and silicone nitride heavy duty guides. They are the perfect match for today's lightweight, high-end conventional reels. Spool up with a braided line/mono topshot combo, and you'll be ready to tame all the pelagic creatures you encounter, with a standup outfit that weighs 1/4 of traditional ones.
High density graphite with a thick-walled, thin-diameter blank gives an even bend throughout the rod curve. This gives steady and even pressure against the fish. Like a modern hunting bow flexes as you pull back, power is generated evenly giving unrelenting lifting power. Fuji® silicon nitride or alconite concept guides and Fuji® or Stuart® reel seats convey this awesome power from the reel. These rods are a perfect match for the powerful drags on the light weight powerful conventional and spinning reels now on the market. Unrelenting rods for unrelenting reels whether flat lining for yellowtail snapper, trolling for yellow fin tuna or casting to huge tarpon there is a Paraflex® rod for you.
