The W3 Boat 2nd has a practical three-section design that makes this rod 'spot on' for all kinds of travelling, no matter if the destination is a Norwegian sea fishing camp, or some tropical island. The second generation of W3 Boat rods have higher strength and sensitivity, thanks to the improved blank technology, and the incorporation of higher quality Torayca® carbon fibre. The Comfort Cross Gimbal is a great alternative to conventional 'stomach puncturing' metal or hard plastic gimbals. It fits perfectly into a fighting harness, and even without a harness landing a monster or two is no problem. The oval XEG guides are some of the toughest saltwater boat guides around and the Torayca® blank offers superior strength and great value for money.
