2kg to 4kg Cobra Series $499

The rod is rated at 2 to 4 kg and weighs 132g/4.6 oz.   Appropriate lure weights are 3 to 11 grams.

The rod has been designed for use on a 2500 size reel and 6 pound mono/fluoro usage but will handle and cast braid to 8 pound long distances with its conventional design.

9 guide train reducing to number 4 running guides and number 6 tip for leader knot transition. 

This stick will no doubt be popular with plastics on heads in the 1/8 to 1/6 range and is a lizard and school jew special. While it will carry a little extra weight its versatility will still belt heads around 1/16 to 1/12 mark.  It will also prove to be an effective stick for heavier lures for jacks and trevally for example and work small poppers nicely.  It will also serve as a fantastic bait stick on most species where a 2500 size reel is used within the given line class or to go heavier whilst maintaining the relative drag settings for the rod.  This is not a finesse stick !   (WCS009)

3kg to 5kg  Cobra Series $499

Its rating comes from some serious power down low, yet the tight tip section retains the sensitivity of a lighter rod.

Designed to fit and balance out a 2500 size reel, the stripper is well placed to deal with 4 to 6 kg mono or braided lines to 8lb and is ideally suited to toss weights of 3 to 11 grams.

Weighing in at 116g/4.1 oz the rod retains lightness to the touch for a blank of this length and combines a 9 guide train decreasing to number four running guides and a number 6 tip for easy leader knot transition. There are 5 under bound and four overbound guides leading to the tip section to decrease weight and increase tip section versatility. 

This high modulus blank will pick up every pulse from light vibes and every pick from a falling crab.  Built and designed to cast hard and far, this stick will also be ideally suited to land based as well as boat fisho's looking for extra distance when approaching skittish fish.   (WCS012)
