Product Description

Live Fibre Overhead Rods – Boat Fishing Rod – Heavy (Choose either model RLF16, RLF18 or RLF19)

When Wilson envisaged the Live Fibre range they had no intention of leaving the overhead anglers out of the mix. The result is an amazing composite, lightweight yet profoundly strong and powerful, and very well placed to hit the offshore waters for some trolling, reef fishing or serious bottom bouncing.

The  fishing rod composite blank provides the best of both worlds, giving you the sensitivity of carbon with the power of glass. The blank has its origins in the aerospace world from where the technology for the carbon component was adapted. The glass is semi-unidirectional, providing focused torque and power, with limited twisting and therefore no power bleed. This is what you want when you are toughing it out with aggressive blue water species like Mackerel and Tuna that will rarely turn to the boat without some very serious convincing.

Live Fibre Overhead Rod lengths are perfect for the boat, and for all intent and purpose, they’re a boat rod. For those that chase large fish such as Mulloway from piers or wharfs, the rods listed below will also prove very effective. Top end anglers who chase big Trevally from the long high piers will also find them very useful.

Pricing will put a smile on your face we’ve no doubt, as the Live Fibre Overhead Rods are delivered, with all this top shelf technology, for a very accessible price here at Fishing Tackle.
