These exciting Shimano® Trevala® Butterfly® rods give you the opportunity to do battle with some real bruisers using gear that's lighter, more manageable, more sensitive, and fun than what you're used to! Yet they lack nothing for power, as all are built on proven TC4 Construction® high modulus graphite/glass blanks with fast-action tips. Other features include lightweight Fuji® New Concept Alconite guides, Gudebrod™ thread wraps, Fuji graphite/nylon reel seats, and custom shaped EVA handles.
Fomerly Favorite rod
I loved this rod, it was light, fast handling and seemed strong. Boated several nice ling cod (40+lbs). Unfortunately, while trying to set the hook and a very powerful hit, the rod exploded into 3 pieces. Very clean breaks, I thought this was unusual. I have two of these and I'm worried about setting the hook with the last one.

I use this rod as a compliment to bottom fishing efforts in the Gulf of Mexico. Light weight with good action tipped with cut or live bait......it's a nice rod for the price.

strong little stick
Vertical jigging is taxing so you want a rod that is light weight and yet strong enough for those AJ's on wrecks.
I use the Trevala when whip jigging and also for vertical jigging and it is tough and strong and easy on the wrist and arms. At around $120 it is hard to beat when matched to a good light weight reel.

Great jigging rod
I used this rod on a charter boat trip for blackfin tuna. I jigged all night and caught plenty of fish without getting tired. The rod is light weight, yet has plenty of backbone to put pressure on the tuna and control them at boatside to avoid massive line tangles. I recommend this rod to anyone that likes to jig for tuna or other fish.
