Model

 
 

ASTRA 76

Length: 7'6" / Lure: 0.3-10g / PE Line: MAX#0.6
A delicate yet surprisingly versatile rod, the ASTRA 76 has a super sensitive tip capable of whipping even the smallest jigs and plugs. That same tip provides unparalleled feedback, so should the fish sneeze on your lure, you’ll know it. Nonetheless, the butt section reserves enough power to bring the fight to the feistiest of small game.

Trad 87

Length: 8'7" / Lure: 10-22g / PE Line: MAX#1.5
Originally designed with eging in mind, the Trad 87 has proven to itself an incredibly versatile rod for light applications the world over. Capable of effortlessly working most any style lure thanks to its mid-range fast action, this rod simply disappears in the handle when balanced with an equally smooth, weightless reel.

Damper 90

Length: 9'0" / Lure: 0.5-18g / PE Line: MAX#1
If you can name it, the Damper S90 can cast it farther than should be allowed for such a light rod! Seemingly weightless jigs, plugs, and soft plastics all sling effortlessly off the super parabolic tip, which also protects the hair-thin lines that allow for the greatest casting distance and most natural lure action. With its unique action, this model is simply a joy for casting and fighting all fish.

Duro 87

Length: 8'7" / Lure: 13-28g / PE Line: MAX#1.5
The most robust model in the Bamboo Work series, the Duro 87 possesses an especially sharp action that lends its to casting lures up to 1oz (28g) and turning the tables on aggressive predators such as sea bass, bluefish, barracudas, pike. Like every Bamboo Work rod, superior design and craftsmanship combine to create a bamboo experience in a class all its own.
