THE new Nitro Sniper three-piece rod is the result of customer feedback - it's specifically designed for anglers with small sedan cars. Measuring 1120mm in broken-down length, versus the standard two-piece length of 1655mm, you can store this popular rod in the car boot.
For too long the focus within the Australian surf and rock market has been on big clunky rods with heavy lines designed to cast monster sinkers to anchor your bait in the current; not much fun in that. The Nitro Sniper is a light and snappy caster designed for six to 12lb line and aimed at those who love fishing beach and rock environments.
An IM8 graphite blank fitted with FUJI Alconite guides, makes for one of the lightest, user friendly surf rods you'll ever feel. At ten and a half feet long, this rod is easy to transport and ideal for bream, luderick, whiting, flathead and salmon right through to tailor and dart and more. RRP - $399.95.
