ONTARIO, Calif., March 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Okuma PCH Custom rods are the latest additions to a deep lineup of saltwater rods and designed specifically for West Coast anglers. Inspired by the Pacific Coast Highway, the PCH Custom are lightweight and sensitive with enough strength and backbone to get fish to, and over the rail. The PCH Custom rods utilize advanced technologies to create refined, powerful rods with exceptional feel and durability.
The backbone to the PCH Custom rods is the patented blank construction process, called, Unidirectional Fiber Reinforcement or UFR. This patented process blends unidirectional fiber over 24-ton carbon in the extended tip section of the rod to increase lifting strength and power. UFR provides strength without sacrificing sensitivity, so anglers can feel the lightest of bites.
"Our goal in developing the PCH Custom rods was to utilize the advancements in technology to offer the strongest yet lightest weight rod we felt possible for saltwater anglers," stated John Bretza, Product Development Manager. "It's amazing to feel these rods and to see what we are able to accomplish."
The PCH Custom Rod's are available in nine models. Three 7-foot casting rods include Medium, Heavy, and Extra Heavy powers. Three 7-foot 6-inch models include Medium, Heavy, and Extra Heavy powers. Three 8-foot models include Medium Heavy, Heavy, and Extra Heavy.
PCH Custom rods feature Fuji K-guides with Alconite inserts on the Medium, Medium Heavy, and Heavy models, as well as ALPS HXH guides with Zirconium inserts on the Extra Heavy models. All models feature ALPS CAH reel seats. The 7-foot and 7-foot 6-inch models feature tapered TPE fore and rear grips and the 8-foot models feature tapered shrink tube for durability and comfort. All PCH Custom rods also have an ALPS non-skid rubber butt cap to reduce deck slide.
The PCH Custom rods will be available in Q2, 2017 at an MSRP of $199.99 and backed by a limited lifetime warranty. For more information, please visit www.okumafishingusa.com.
