Ron at BarBar Tackle made me another Super Seeker, this time an acid wrapped jigger. It's a 30-80 blank with an ALPS triangular reel seat. The rear grip from end of gimbal to reel seat is about 16 inches and the rear grip is very slender. the forgrip is triangular shaped and 10 inches in length. Guides are ALPS and made to wrap and support the zirconia insert. It's 6'1" in length and as close as I can tell about 18 ounces in weight. I've done some lifts to 35 lbs but didn't have anybody to take a pic. I'm putting a 5000P Ocea Jigger on it. Hope to put it through it's paces in Venice and on Tuna Seis no the 18-20.

It's a nice lookin rod too. The wraps came out blue in the pics but they're black and silver like the wraps on the roller rod. Man, I hope we get 2 days fishing this year.

Fred,

Where do you find the triangled fore grips? I'd like to have something like that on some of my rods.

Good luck on the Seis trip!

Both Merrick (wholesale) and Acid Rod carry them. I've got one on my conventional 300g jig rod and really like it.

those triangle grips can be a lifesaver, they're a lot easier to hold, and don't twist in your hand

Nope, the flash came on and skewed the colors. the rod is a dark root beer color and the wraps are black and silver. Such is the way of digital photography and a low tech operator.
