For anglers looking to satisfy their stand-up fishing style or tackle more offshore species, Fin-Nor has introduced the Powerlite series, including four spinning, four conventional and four stand-up models. The rods come in classes from 20- to 80-pound to fish mono or braid. Stand-ups measure 5 feet, 9 inches; spinners and conventional rods measure 7 feet long. All feature gimbal butts and Fuji or aluminum reel seats. Fin-Nor made the blanks by combining overlapping layers of glass and graphite to make them thin in diameter and light yet strong. Retail cost for spinning and conventional models is $199.95; $219.95 for stand-ups. Call 800-588-9030 or visit www.finnorfishing.com.
