If you fish small streams or tight places, the Suzume will quickly become your favorite, go-to rod. Suzume or “Sparrow”, is a small, lightweight, aggressive and highly adaptable bird found all over North America and most of the world…that’s the Suzume. The Suzume is a triple zoom and can be fished at 3 lengths: 7.7’, 9.3’ and 10.8’ giving you extreme accessibility in a variety of situations. It has a medium-fast action, 6:4 flex and a slender, double taper, high quality, 11” cork handle for extreme comfort and a custom fit. The handle not only allows you to find your own “sweet spot” but it also ensures the rod is balanced and not front heavy. Suzume is extremely accurate, strong, yet very delicate for the most precise and beautiful presentations imaginable. Includes spare tip, rod sock and hard travel tube. Pair with the Performance Tip for a faster action (sold separately).
