Snowbee Deep Blue Titanium Livebait Boat Rod - 7ft 7in IGFA 12lb(6kg) Class.
Based on the standard 12lb class model, but with an ultra-soft Korean S-Glass tip section, for supreme sensitivity. Based on rods we first developed for the USA SKA (Southern Kingfish Association) Tournament, where fishing livebait for kingfish, they can encounter fish up to 60lb plus, hitting the bait at up to 40mph! Something has to give and hence the soft-tip ‘Livebait’ model was developed. A superb rod for livebait fishing for bass and other species, but equally suitable as a highly sensitive ‘bait-rod’ fishing for turbot or black bream.
Updated in 2014, but fans of the original Deep Blue range need not worry. The blanks are still the same, as you can’t improve on perfection! Their sensitive tips allow you to feel every bite, while the steep taper, combined with varying wall thickness and an innovative mix of carbon fibre grades, still provides a progressive power curve, right down to the butt.
The design changes have been to the handle configuration and the rings. Although still 2-pce blanks, the handle is now all in one piece, so the spigot is moved to the top of the fore grip, to remove the ‘waisted’ joint of the earlier models. This is more of a ‘cosmetic’ change and makes no difference to the action of the blanks.
The biggest change however, is the use of the new ALPS solid Titanium guides throughout. The new Deep Blue'Titanium' Boat Rods use the new ALPS solid Titanium guides throughout. These innovative new guides are made from 100% Titanium for light weight and strength, so will simply never corrode, no matter how much abuse they are given. They also feature a ‘Ring-Lock’ system, whereby the Zirconium ring liners are locked in place and can never be knocked out.
Finished in lustrous deep blue with subtle cross-whippings and decals plus the Fuji lightweight graphite reel seats and ALPS Titanium guides throughout, the Deep Blue Titanium range simply oozes class. Unlike most boat rods on the market, all rods of the Deep Blue range are accurately rated to IGFA line classes, so if Snowbee say it’s a 12lb class, it is. At 7ft 7in they offer the ideal length for the serious boat angler and include a model to suit all fishing situations.
