The brand-new GT-2 is a unique, and possibly slightly controversial style rod. It’s a continental style rod, but a two-piece! The GT-2 has the same spliced in solid tip that the GT three-piece rod features, designed for good bite indication but rigid enough to cope with the rigours of fishing in fast tides and strong surf conditions. The progressively powerful mid tip and butt section gives excellent casting performance and backbone for landing big fish from the shore. This two-piece version was added to cater for the growing number of anglers who have been looking at three-piece, continental style rods but have been wary fishing with them. This rod features all the benefits of using a continental style rod regarding bite detection and overall usability in a two-piece package. It is hybrid rung with Fuji CC framed KWAG Alconite rings and a quality Fuji Sliding DPS Reel Seat for use with both multiplier and fixed spool reels. Constructed from lightweight 40 Ton carbon from Japan.
About the Cobra series
The Cobra series of rods have been designed to cross the bridge between continental style surfcasting rods and traditional British style rods, designed to cope with the rigours and unique nature of shore fishing around the coast of the UK and Ireland. The range features four rods, each of which caters for a specific style of fishing.
The range includes a light, beach ledgering rod designed for fishing for smaller species in the summer, The Cobra Light. The Cobra GT is intended for general clean beach fishing and has been responsible for landing some big fish in its time, including stingray to over 60lbs. The Cobra TT V.2 is the heavyweight rod, designed for fishing heavy seas, fast running tides and mixed rough ground marks. The Cobra GT-2 is a unique take on the continental style rod, and unlike its sisters, this rod is a two-piece beachcaster, the first two-piece continental style rod of its kind.
All Cobra rods feature top quality components from Fuji and built from lightweight but tough, strong carbon from Japan.
