The Black Steel Salt Water Series rods from Seeker are constructed of a blend of graphite, E-glass and boron. The manufacturer says their construction gives the rods faster recoil, which enables anglers to land big fish more quickly. The Black Steel rods come in 23 models, ranging from a 6', 20 lb. stick to a 6' 3", 130 lb. rail model. The rods come with either black AFTCO roller guides or Perfection titanium-carbide guides. The Black Steel Salt Water Series rods range in price from $179 to $349 and come with a lifetime guarantee. Seeker Rods, Long Beach, CA; (800) 3SEEKER; www.seekerrods.com.
