The Okuma SST New Generation Float Rod, at 13 feet, four inches in length, is specifically designed for large streams and rivers where anglers need a long and flexible rod to properly manage line by keeping it off water for a drag-free drift. The IM-8 graphite rod blank is sensitive yet built to absorb the strike force produced by big anadromous salmon and steelhead! The three-piece New Generation SST Float Rod uses stainless steel guide frames with smooth zirconium guide inserts to reduce line friction. Rounding out these long fishing rods are premium cork grips, a compressed cork non-skid surface butt cap, and a stainless steel hook keeper. When taking on big flowing water for these fish swimming to spawning grounds, get the rod suited for the fishing environment and tactic – the Okuma SST New Generation Float Rod!
