Incorporating feedback from longtime surf anglers, Okuma's new Cedros CSX Surf spinning rods start with 30-ton carbon-fiber blanks, and employ 316-grade stainless guide frames and a custom handle set. Okuma says the 30-ton blanks combine responsiveness and durability, quicken the action, and increase power compared with IM-6 graphite. All eight models feature moderate/fast tapers, small-diameter zirconium inserts, shrink-tube grips and Pac Bay reel seats. The two‑piece rods range in lengths from 8 to 11 feet and cost $149.99 to $169.99. Call 909-923-2828 or visit okumafishing.com.
