We "just" improved the 2002 ICAST BEST OF SHOW. Aesthetically. Technically. We added a third generation reel seat that is more stable and ergonomic and that helps the alignment between the hand and the ideal line of the guides, improving precision and castability. We removed completely the fore grip and replaced the usual nylon hood with extra light custom aluminum hood to reduce weight and to transmit more vibrations. We added the most efficient micro-guide system in the world, the Ken Whiting's Airrus Micro-guide System. We reduced the blank weight, improved the guide material and added a new incredible Nano layered carbon fiber, the buck paper. You can count on each Airrus COMATRIX 2.5 Bucky paper section. This indestructible and exclusive military grade material (built in U.S.A) is a Nano membrane capable to strengthen the backbone of the rod allowing a powerful hook setting without dispersing any energy, to amplify the vibrations, to reduce the tip oscillations after each cast. Because we don’t produce fishing rods thinking of amateurs bass anglers.
