Epixor Inshore 1pc Rods By Okuma!

I've ALWAYS wanted & loved 1-piece rods over any other type of rod. My first GT rod was a custom 13ft 1pc Saber made by Fuji Fishing Supply in Kaimuki back in the 70's. But the lengths became cumbersome to transport & store. Nowadays 1pc rods are expensive since the transportation cost are much higher. The 7ft Epixor i just received was shipped in a heavy 7-1/2ft canister. To get a decent price on a 1pc rod you need to find a local dealer who'll bring in a container to cut the shipping cost.

Why are 1-piecers so desirable? The sensitivity to nibbles & fast reactions to bites. I never thought i'd own another 1pc rod unless it was customized. Turns out Okuma markets 3 models of the 7ft & 3 models of the 7'6" single rods at only $69? So my buddies at Okuma furnished me with a unit to try. As the name implies it was conceived for inshore fresh & saltwater species. So i'll be trying this rod with a Epixor 20 spinning reel to start.
