GOLDEN BAY fishing rod – Spinning

GOBS 802 H

Ideal for shad fishing, the Golden Bay GOBS 802 H will surprise you with its balance and  lightness. But these two assets do not summarize the qualities of this particularly successful model. The conical blank feels great in hand and has superb sensitivity.

It has the property to echo the vibrations of your shad, keeping you in touch with the lure, the progressive action ensures optimum lure animation and casting. Whether casting or vertical fishing, you are assured to have the best control over your lures. However, limiting this rod to just fishing with soft baits would be a shame because it will allow you to tackle all fish with hard baits and jig casting as comfortably.

  •  High Performance Toray Japan HM40T Carbon Blank
  •  Fuji rings
  •  Fuji reel seat
  • Ergonomic EVA foam handle
  • Padded cloth bag
