The Nova Slayer Series is our own line of rod blanks. Designed by Nova Tackle Company and hand rolled to our specifications.
The NTX1653 is an all around great Steelhead rod for the Great Lakes region. It is a 13' rod, rated for 6-12lb leader. The tip section is soft enough to protect light leaders, while the butt section is stout and can turn large steelhead to help the angler control his fish. This rod has lots of Reserve power in the bottom end, allowing steelhead fisherman to control their catch better.
We utilize USA made CFX carbon fiber grips along with a rubber coated graphite reel seat, which will help keep your hands warm in the winter.
Each rod is hand built in the USA. We utilize the best available components and add attention to detail in all of our rods. Items such as over sized guides for the Great Lakes Region, which help reduce ice build up in the guides when fishing in below freezing temperatures.
