For saltwater and freshwater
The HTO Hyper Sniper rod bridges the gap between fresh and saltwater light lure angling. Each Hyper Sniper rod carries the same specification, one rod has a solid tip and the other a tubular tip. Ideal if you requires both tips and wants to have two rods of the same spec. Also ideal if you use one type of tip for most of your fishing and want a high spec, quality rod at a sensible price. Both rods are 7ft 2in in length and both have a casting rating of 1-8g.
HTO Hyper Sniper rods are built using a micro pitch blank finish, this creates tightly wrapped fine pitch tape during the curing process. This creates a denser blank, increasing strength, lightness but also sensitivity. The tip section is not painted, the weight of the paint can adversely affect tip performance. To aid bite detection, contrasting silver whippings on the tip ring, 1st, 2nd and 3rd intermediate guides act as an indication target.
The HTO Hyper Sniper use quality fittings from Fuji, including Fuji KR Guides which utilise an upswept frame that sits higher on the blank. This helps to reduce any line slap on the blank between the reel and butt ring. It also helps to shed wind knots and tangles that can be associated with faster action blanks, increase casting efficiency.
