Okuma Andros Jigging Casting Rods were developed in connection with the Andros 5II lever drag reel as a highly advanced vertical jigging platform. The reel is astonishing, and so too are the rods. In order to shed weight without losing power, Andros rods feature parabolic blanks constructed of IM-6 graphite. Each model is crafted in two-pieces with a handle ferrule connection that delivers one-piece rod performance while allowing for easy travel to worldwide destinations. Split rear grips eliminate chaffing when employing an underarm jigging stroke.
Andros Jigging Rods feature a highly custom Alps machined aluminum casting reel seat is designed for use without reel clamps. A custom locking nut secures the reel and machined finger grooves provide a positive and ergonomic grip. Completed with Alps 316-SS guide frames with Zirconium inserts, Andros rods maximize opportunities suitable for up to 50-pound braid.
