The EKA rods, meaning “first” in Finnish, are incredible rods in their price range. The blanks are made from 24ton low resin graphite making these rods light in weight and well balanced in hand. Thanks to their 4 – piece construction and narrow and light plastic tube these are easy to pack for your travels. The matt finished graphite colour blank doesn’t just look good, but it also shields you and the fish from unwanted reflections. The narrow handles are sensitive and the anodised reelseat holds your reel nice and firm.
We give a rating for the carbon that is used in each of our graphite rods. The higher the number the higher the modulus of the carbon that is used for the rod. The rating is closely related to the tonnage of the carbon in each of the rods. However this is not the whole truth as we use different carbon mixtures to achieve the wanted rod action and also the resins differ from model to model. But this rating is an indication of the main carbon used in the blank. Our premium rods use graphene in the resin and rods are identified by the Graphene logo.
