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# braid for an additional $150
- 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).

- Extremely large helical gearing for long term durability and quiet operation.

- Honed and polished drag plates for smooth drag levels across all levels of drag.
