An ideal all-round beach fishing rod that is perfect for fishing on clean beaches. The spliced in solid glass tip provides excellent bite detection, making this a great rod for flatfish fishing and perfect for bass in calmer seas or in a churning surf. Although the tip is designed for bite detection, it stays rigid when fished in heavier seas and powerful tides. The tip blends in progressively with the mid and butt section which gives you greater control when you need to bring in those bigger fish. The power has been harnessed to give you the right balance across the casting ranges, long or short. As well as a 4.2m and 4.5m, we have introduced a 3.9m version, ideal for anglers who find fishing with shorter rods suits their casting style and for youngsters, who are fishing with continental style rods for the first time. Built from lightweight 24T carbon and featuring Seaguide K guides and a Tronixpro DPS reel seat, the Aphex Continental GT offers the best compromise between performance and price point.
