3 piece rod and comes with 3 off tips: 3 ounce tip (fitted with stainless steel Pac Bay guides and Zirconia inserts), 4 ounce tip (fitted with stainless steel Pac Bay guides and Zirconia inserts) and 6 ounce tip (fitted with stainless steel Fuji KWAG 10x5 for the running guides with a MN tip top in size 12 guides and Zirconia inserts). This was done specifically for braid aplilaction.
The second piece is fitted with stainless steel KWAG 30, 25, 20 and 12 sizes as reduction guides. Rod was made grinder friendly and KWAG guides fitted by Chuck Le Bron 1 week ago. I use the rod for multiplier and grinder fishing i.e Daiwa Saltist 50H and Shimano Spheros 10000 grinder.
I have used the rod once after rod guides were fitted a week ago.
Please realise that the ounce rating is higher than stated on the rod. I fish the 4 ounce rated tip with a 5 ounce sinker and mullet head, and it still feels under loaded. The 6 ounce tip (prior to having the rod made grinder friendly) I fished an 6-8 ounce sinker for sliding, and for casting a 5 ounce and yellow tail head. The rod has 3 off applications i.e. edible fishing 3 ounce tip (4 ounce sinker and mussel/worm/prawn bait) , 4 ounce tip (5-6 ounce sinker with 200mm mullet/medium chokka & sardine bait for cob, and the 6 ounce tip for sliding or casting large baits as yellow tail heads.
I am selling the rod as I am not doing non-edible fishing anymore and looking for dedicated shorter edible rod

I would also consider Swopping for an edible rod, 13 foot 3-5 ounce for the same value. Will also consider combining the 2 off rods i.e Sharky, and Shockwave in other add for an edible rod of similar value.
