The Virtus Series rod is not only lightweight but very strong, with the sensitivity and feel needed when targeting inshore fish. It is built with Toray graphite material. It has a split grip handle to help balance the rod for a more comfortable feel when finesse fishing, or chunking hard baits. A lot of input went into building this rod from local guides with over fifty years’ experience. If you are looking for a lightweight, well-balanced rod, this is the rod for you.
