EXP4 rods are finished in a metallic ‘rust’ Color with matching wrappings and trim. Each rod section is individually marked with the rod length and weight to avoid any mix-up of parts. The cork handles are of good quality and have user friendly designs that fit a wide range of hand shapes and sizes. Rods up to 6-weight are fitted with dark maroon colored reel seats with aluminium parts. All other rods have our super-solid custom reel seats with a hard-anodized, saltwater-resistant finish and great looks. All EXP4 rods are equipped with single-leg, hard-chrome guides. The stripper guides are finished in dark gunsmoke anodizing with Hardloy inserts. For protection when not in use, the rods come with red rod tubes and high quality, soft cloth bags.
