If you’re looking for a new saltwater stick but don’t want to break the bank on your next purchase, check out Grey’s new line of Platinum XD saltwater rods. Available in five different line sizes, Platinum rods feature a slim profile designed to cut through harsh coastal winds, and high-modulus blank construction that mixes delicacy with power.
The result is a rod capable of delivering quiet presentations as well as taking big fish under demanding conditions. The Platinum series are four-piece rods ranging from 4.65 ounces to 5.64 ounces. They feature twin large-diameter butt rings for rapid line clearing, a one-piece anodized reel fitting and an attractive triangular rod tube. The 12-weight model comes with a fighting grip for tarpon, sharks and other big species. MSRP ranges from $300 to $330. http://fly.greysfishing.com
