Combo: Banax Kaigen 1500 & Custom Swordfish Rod

Regular price $1,900.00

This combo deal includes a Banax Kaigen 1500 and custom Check’n Bottom Tilefish/Deep Drop rod. This rod is built on our Calstar daytime swordfish blank and Alps titanium guides with ultra hard Zirconium inserts, a Winthrop roller tip and a #2 Alps long bent butt. 

This rod is perfect for seeing the subtle bite of a swordfish and is also great for deep drop fish such as tilefish and barrel fish. 

Build time for the custom rod is 5-6 weeks. 

Can be spooled with 65# or 80#  TUF Line braid for an additional $150

BANAX 1500:

 - High speed retrieve 550 feet per minute. 

 - Low speed high torque mode for larger fish, reel will automatically shift speeds without stopping the spool (Other current 2 speed reels have to stop the reel to shift). 

 - 70# drag with empty spool, 50# drag with a full spool - very smooth.  Motor torque exceeds these drag capabilities.  
 - Extremely large helical gearing for long term durability and quiet operation.
 - Generously sized drag system for consistent performance over long battles.
 - Honed and polished drag plates for smooth drag levels across all levels of drag.  
 - 7 large diameter carbon fiber greased drag washers. 
 - Oversized ceramic level wind guide (.230") easily handles windons, wax loops and kite swivels. The level wind design eliminates the chance of line wrap, and has a solid metal guide housing.    
 - Reel will display feet (Yay!) or meters
 - Solid core braid capacities:
65# Braid - 1200 Yards
80# Braid - 1000 Yards
100# Braid - 800 Yards
130# Braid - 600 Yards
