Makaira Trolling Rod (MK-TR-601XXH) For Trolling!

Roughly 10yrs ago John Bretza of Okuma introduced the Makaira Line of fishing rods. It started with longer rods with lighter applications. In a few years Makaira Rods were a hit at ICAST for durable strong trolling rods. In 2020 Okuma retired that line & other options emerged like the PCH Trolling Rods to the HCS Custom Tuna Trolling Rods. Though retired i opted to purchase a pair since the prices has dropped but the high quality remains. Here's what you're getting-

Carbon Composite Rod Blank.
ALPS Deep Pressed 316 Stainless Steel Guides.
Customized ALPS Aluminum Reel Seats With Abalone Under Lays.
