Today's fishing rods must be lightweight and sensitive while providing enough backbone for big fish. Savage Gear's new Browser series of spinning and casting rods — for inshore saltwater species and freshwater bass — delivers all of that, the company says. Browsers begin with a light-carbon blank that blends unidirectional fiber over 24-ton carbon in the tip section to increase lifting strength. The series includes 14 models from 7 to 8 feet in length and with medium-light to extra-extra-heavy actions. Browsers feature Seaguide CCS guides and custom reel seats flanked by foam foregrips and a cork butt section. They cost $79.99 to $129.99.
