Offshore Angler Offshore Extreme Every rod in this series benefits from our proprietary Slit Carbon Powerwall construction which strengthens blank material by up to 40%. And every model was designed from scratch, often requiring completely new tooling for reel seats and other components. The result is a perfect match of features to function.
We developed these sticks specifically for the deadly hybrid jigging technique from Japan which uses fine-diameter superbraid and bar jigs top-rigged with dual swinging hooks. Revolutionary Type II Slit Carbon Powerwall Construction and top-line componentry, including Fuji® guides and reel seat give you a rod that's extremely lightweight, highly sensitive, and brutally strong--to make jigging more fun and productive than ever.
Rated 4 out of 5 by VetteGirl tough, but not tough enough
This is a great rod, it held up to a 20+ lb 'cuda and a ton of other fish in the Keys, but finally cried uncle after a 20 minute battle with a 40+lb tarpon. It held on long enough for me to get the fish to the boat, but snapped just above the handle as I got the fish to the boat. Hoping Bass Pro will warranty the rod when I take it back to them next week. Had a similar issue with a rod from another manufacturer and a sailfish, the other manufacturer replaced the rod no questions asked. Time to find out if Offshore Angler stands behind their products as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JC Couldn't break 'em
I go to Panama to fish every year and I like to use spinning tackle as much as I can. The challenge is that we may encounter a 5lb jack , a 300lb yellowfin or a 60lb cubera at any moment given the rich diversity of species. Heavy spin tackle and braided line is required. The 6'6 and the 7'0 both have a one year guarantee against breakage which is great .Given the extreme light weight and flexiblity of these rods, I couldn't see how they could possibly stand up to a big yellowfin or cubera. I saved my receipt and figured I'd be returning broken rods---was I wrong!!!!!!Caught a 60lb yellowfin on the 6'6" and a 50lb cubera on topwater plug on the 7'0. It's way more fun and more of a challenge to catch a fish on the lightest possible tackle.These rods just made every other spinning rod I have obsolete--even more amazing when you consider the rod price.
