The 6’6" Trolling 30 class regulation trolling rod has the extra length needed to assure the rod clears the transom from fighting chair. It features the gold Stuart roller guides and a Stuart #2 long aluminum two pc butt. A set of these 30# rods paired with a pair of the Trolling 50’s makes for an excellent charter set for every day fishing. The fast taper and soft tip section make for great hook sets with no hook bounce which gets the job done nicely. Put a Tiagra 30W reel or any similar sized reel with 30-40# line and you will have one heck of a package. When you spend all day waiting for that one solid hook up, you will be glad that you picked this rod. It has been proven for over 20 years to handle the toughest big game fish the ocean has to offer.
