The EKA rods, meaning “first” in Finnish, are incredible rods in their price range. The blanks are made from 24ton low resin graphite making these rods light in weight and well balanced in hand. Thanks to their 4 – piece construction and narrow and light plastic tube these are easy to pack for your travels. The matt finished graphite color blank doesn’t just look good, but it also shields you and the fish from unwanted reflections. The narrow handles are sensitive and the anodized reel seat holds your reel nice and firm.
