Okuma’s Solaris SS-C-1102H-2 fishing rod was specially designed for hardcore surf angler. It is a heavy action line rod that is well built. The fishing rod is made of graphite and other composite material, which means that it is thicker than other rods made of 100% graphite. It is 11ft long and ideal for long distance casting.
The rod can be relied on to catch large hard fighting fish irrespective of their sizes. The pole is sensitive and does not feel heavy like other 11’ poles on the market. However, it can be used to cast 5oz sinkers far in the water. This rod was designed to target big fish.
The Solaris SS-C-1102H-2 surf fishing rod was constructed for hardcore anglers. Its blank is constructed using the sensitive IM6 graphite and other quality components such as Fuji’s cushion hood, stainless steel double footed guide frame.
The rod is cork wrapped for rear grips and non-slip. The Im-6 graphite was used to make the rod light weighted and increase its responsiveness. In fact, Okuma used these components to help increase the performance of the rod and make it durable.
It has a nice non-slip cork wrap butt finish that guarantees the angler a sure grip even when casting in foul weather. It also comes with an EVA grip which ensures that the angler is comfortable and can fish all day long without worrying about blisters during hard tackling retrieves. Thus, it is a sensitive rod for serious anglers, which can be cast further to target the big fish.
This is a heavy action rod that is resistant to bending. Its line weight ranges from 15 -25 lb and can target larger species of fish. The rod can manage a lure weight of up to 1 ½ oz. Its blank is heavier than it is in other rods and is made of graphite and other materials.
The Solaris SS-C-1102H-2 fishing rod is resistant to flexing, no wonder it is an ideal rod for anglers targeting hard fighting fish. It is an ideal rod when targeting the Catfish, the black bass, and the walleye. However, the rods require the angler to practice using it before swinging into action.
The Solaris SS-C-1102H-2 fishing rod is a heavy action rod that is fast. It is capable of bending three to four inches before it transfers power to the graphite-made blank.
This is pretty quick and easily transfers the hook set. It is an ideal rod for fish that fight a lot once they are hooked. The fact that it is a heavy action rod allows the angler to drive the hook much faster into the fish’s mouth and suits baits such as jig, spinnerbait, and soft plastics.
The Solaris SS-C-1102H-2 fishing rod is a heavy action rod that measures 11’ long. Even though, this rod is not as heavy as other rods that are 11ft long.The rod is made of graphite which is lighter than any other material used in making rods.
It is capable of a line weight of between 20-40lb and can comfortably manage a lure weight of 3-8oz. This is a strong rod, which is capable of using large lures, thus, it ideal when targeting big fish.
Recovery, Sensitivity, and Brittleness:
The rod’s blank is made of graphite, which has interesting properties such as low weight, low hardness, and high tensile strength. Also, graphite is extremely sensitive hence Okuma chose to use it to enable the rod to transmit the feeling to the angler when the fish bites the lure or when the lure moves under murky water where it cannot be easily seen.
Sensitivity is critical in fishing. Most anglers want rods that are capable of transmitting the feelings when the lure moves underwater, especially where the lure is not visible. Higher modulus graphite is more sensitive, although it may result in diminishing returns as you get higher the modulus rating scale. As far as recovery is concerned, the rod recovers pretty fast and is less brittle thanks to the high modulus graphite used.
If you are serious angler looking for a rod that is not too expensive, but which will give you great service, consider buying Solaris SS-C-1102H-2 fishing rod.
It comes with a strong backbone and is ideal for long casts. It is a well-built rod with good finishes and feels comfortable in hands.
