The Kodiak Macro series features upgraded carbon fiber graphite blanks and ceramic line guides that are larger then micro guides but smaller then our standard size. As well as the Original Big Bear grip design. The new Kodiak blanks utilize three types of high modulus carbon fiber rolled under extreme pressure to create an even lighter, more sensitive graphite blank. There are also more models available with addition of extra fast actions. Zirconium NanoLite ceramic rings provide the ultimate in hardness and durability and are surrounded by a stainless ring lock frame. Considered by many to be semi-micro in size, a number 6 stripper guide followed by number 5 running guides and tip are small enough to take weight away from the standard size layout but large enough to pass leader knots. Like every Big Bear rod the Kodiak is designed to easily handle all super lines and saltwater and has a limited lifetime warranty.
