Okuma: The highly anticipated C3 (Carbon Cone Concept) rods are now shipping and Okuma had a full rack on display at the show. These rods feature a high modulus "40 ton" graphite construction with a ported Fuji reel seat for reduced weight and a split grip butt section for reduced weight. These rods look very premium with their lightly sanded carbon grips which are designed to actually feel tacky to the touch when wet. While designed to compete with top premium rods on the market the C3 is a great deal for only 149-159 dollars depending on model, and also come backed with a limited lifetime warranty.

The split grip design says it all

 

Reflexions Rod: Okuma also offered their own answer to the struggling economy with the Reflexions rods which feature IM-8 blanks, low profile stainless steel guide frames, zirconium inserts, a split grip design, and most importantly a retail price of only 49.99-54.99 depending on model!

Lamiglas: New for the season is the Mark Wilson trolling rod. Mark is actually a striper trolling guru on the nearby Delta and worked closely with Lamiglas to design the ultimate trolling specifically for stripers. Featuring a combination of graphite and glass the company wasn't shy about the combination and the sections of the rod where the material transitions is very evident.

We think the rod actually looks very custom as the colors transition from grey to olive green and ultimately to a familiar orange at the tip. The 705 Striper rod is 7'0" in length, handles lures 3/8-1 1/2oz. and lines 8-20lb. The rod is available now and retails for 189 dollars.
