Profile GT Blank

£435.00

This legendary rod is renowned for low diameter, superb power to weight ratio with a light, super sensitive glass tip. One of Terry’s masterpieces. The subtle blending of the glass upper tip into the carbon fibre makes this rod ideal for casting soft and delicate baits off the tip – long distances. When the barrel and butt is accessed with more powerful casts, it delivers impressive distances with the full range of bait and weight packages between 100grams – 180grams.

The tip works the waves well due to its sweet action. From Terry design notes – this rod favours a progressive build up in power and the mandrel tooling combined with the clever combination of composites gives an easy to use and highly responsive rod action. Custom, technical, high tenacity carbon and glass fibres are cleverly integrated into this masterpiece of rod design.
