Rapala Rods Tournament Class Series
Premium Graphite Fuji® SBS spinning reel seats with stainless steel hoods, locks reels down dependably and provides a comfortable grip. Includes hook keeper to secure lures without damaging the rod. Fuji Hardloy® Guides are produced from a special blend of high-grade Aluminum Oxide.
Because the Hardloy® ring is diamond polished and permanently mounted to the frame, it results in lighter weight, greater heat dissipation and decreased line wear. In addition, the Rapala® Maximum Guide System (MGS) provides increased sensitivity, strength and balance.
High-quality components are the backbone of the Rapala® Tournament Class Series rods. Like HM-45 high modulus graphite makes them unbelievably sensitive, signaling every stump, rock and weed you work your lure over and even the slightest bites. In addition, Fuji® reel seats, grade “A” cork handles and a “Cross Rap” graphite weave add strength. Each rod is layered with multiple coats of clear matte epoxy and Fuji® Hardloy® Guides.

A lightweight lure no one knew how to use, with a name no one knew how to pronounce. The back room of a south Minneapolis bait-and-tackle shop. A beat-up metal desk. And lots of enthusiasm.
What began as a simple dream in 1959 has evolved into one of the fishing tackle industry's most influential organizations. Based in Minnetonka, Minnesota, with companies in 12 countries and distribution in more than 130 countries, the Rapala-Normark Group is the world's largest fishing lure company, as well as one of the world's largest premium fishing tackle distributors.
Fishing tackle companies have come and some have all but disappeared since 1959, but the Rapala-Normark Group endure.
