HYBRID VACUUM is a new rod, that uses a completely new production method.
This new method completely solves the old composite rod problem of a sudden change in action down the rod, as it changed from glass to carbon blank.
Tubular glass and highly elastic HP40 graphite can be combined to form a smooth working curve. A fusion of the sensitivity of glass and power of HP40 graphite create a completely natural casting feel. This is one hybrid rod, that will do the name ROADRUNNER HYBRID VACUUM proud.
All rods are fitted with Black Stainless Sic Ring Guides.
The colored balancers allow the angler to balance their rod setting to fit their own style and methods. Each series is equipped with the WBC balancer. Not only is it used to change the rod balance, by using different colors you can add your own accent and style to the rod, or use the different colors as markers to help you find the rod you need faster.
Seasoned tournament professional, Haruhiko Ishikawa, tested this model throughout the JB tournament ’06 season as part of the NORIES pro team. In midwater, the soft glass tip section of the hybrid allows the angler total control over light rubber jigs and non-sinker wacky rigs. The sensitivity in the tip transfers the faintest bites through the rod even when applying erratic actions to lures. Its smooth taper makes putting cumbersome lures into tight areas simple. This is the rod advanced tournament anglers have been looking for
