Big Bear Handle Lengths

Every Big Bear Rod is in perfect balance.  Having the correct handle length can mean the difference between the perfect rod and a tip heavy rod.  Big Bear handles increase half an inch for every three inches in total rod length.  This subtle increase allows anglers to more comfortably move up and down in rod length when conditions call for a rod change.
