These rods are very similar to our regular "Traveler" Series four piece rods. The primary differences are in the reel seat skeleton and the finish on the blank itself. The reel seat skeleton is a tough gunmetal-titanium colored anodized aluminum and have beautiful rosewood or buckeye burl inserts (seven and eight weights have saltwater style seats with a fighting butt). The rod blanks sport a matte finish and have black thread wraps. These Nomad rods have a moderate action and progressive flex and are very easy loading smooth casting and powerful rods. These incredibly priced rods are four piece and range in line weights from three through eight. As with all Elkhorn rods, these rods come with a cordura nylon (black) covered sturdy rod tube with Elkhorn logo embroidery.
