Okuma SCT-AT-601H Albacore Trolling Rod – 6ft - Review
The Okuma SCT-AT-601H Albacore Trolling Rod is a high-quality fishing rod designed specifically for catching school tuna. It features top-end components and an elegant design, making it both functional and visually appealing.
One of the standout features of this trolling rod is its use of top-end components. The rod uses ALPS aluminum reel seats, which are known for their durability and strength. Additionally, it incorporates ALPS stainless steel deep press guide frames with Titanium-Oxide inserts. These inserts enhance the performance of the rod by reducing friction and increasing line flow.
The Okuma SCT-AT-601H Albacore Trolling Rod is also extremely lightweight and responsive, thanks to its 24-ton carbon rod blanks. This material not only makes the rod easier to handle but also increases its lifting power and maximum strength.
The rod's construction is further enhanced by the use of Unidirectional Fiber Reinforcement (UFR) technology. This technology involves the use of a dual helix wrap configuration with over 6000 strands of carbon fiber, resulting in improved strength and durability.
The Okuma SCT-AT-601H Albacore Trolling Rod features titanium oxide ALPS guide inserts and stainless steel deep-pressed guide frames. These components ensure smooth line flow and minimize wear and tear on the fishing line.
For increased durability, the rod is equipped with EVA foregrip and rear grips. These grips provide a comfortable and secure hold, even during long fishing sessions. Additionally, the rod includes an aluminum gimbal and an ALPS aluminum reel seat to further enhance its functionality.
Please note that there is an $8.00 oversize packaging charge for this item. This fee is necessary as the rod is shipped in a long, heavy-duty tube to protect it during transit. Even when discount shipping coupons are used, this packaging charge will still apply.
