Overview Reviews Product Description Born and developed on the legendary salmon and steelhead rivers of the Pacific Northwest, the Skykomish rod series delivers exceptional performance and value. Each rod has been designed for a specific purpose, focusing on sensitivity without sacrificing control of your casts, line, or fish. While the moderate-fast action doesn't limit sensitivity, it does allow for an additional level of control of the fight with powerful sea-run fish. This second release of the Skykomish series sees a distinct improvement in durability, and has also expanded to allow for a variety of additional techniques for targeting both salmon and steelhead. Please Note: The section of exposed carbon in the middle of the joint is by design. This allows for repeated assembly/disassembly without the joint becoming loose over time. Once you have snugged the sections together, you will still see exposed carbon. Were this to be painted, it would not allow for as tight of a connection, and would diminish positive engagement over time.
