This is the perfect rod for stalking salmon with medium sized wobblers, spinners or rubber baits. The taut action ensures a clean strike and control during play.

Made from strong 36ton carbon fibre, these rods are great for medium and large rivers with stronger currents as well as deep lakes.

Best matched with our Alegra GT Spin Reel 3500.

Balzer GmbH was founded in 1949, 21 years before Shimano launched its fishing tackle division. Balzer salmon rods are a fantastic alternative to Shimano rods.
