Handle an Offshore Angler® Seafire Rod and Reel Combo, and you’ll know it’s something different. With rock solid construction and premium components, this is a big game fishing rig ready to take on the most powerful fish that swim the seas.

When the fish on the other end of your line can weigh as much as you do, the Seafire Reel is up to the task. A one-piece CNC machined aluminum frame ensures proper gear alignment even under the most intense stress while four sealed stainless steel ball bearings provide reliable, corrosion-free performance. At this reel’s heart is a powerful, easily adjusted, star drag system that you can count on to keep you in the fight.

The rod is constructed from a heavy duty one-piece E-glass blank. E-glass provides perfect shock absorption for the strike and hook-up, then plenty of power, backbone, and durability for the long fight ahead.  Reinforced, double-footed stainless steel guides maintain their shape and minimize line wear as the fight drags on.

The Seafire Combo comes in two rod lengths; either 5 feet 6 inches or 6 feet even.  Spooled with mono the Seafire reel handles from 245 yards of 50-pound to 405 yards of 30-pound. Load it up with braid, and it takes from 665 yards of 80-pound to a whopping 950 yards of 20-pound test.

This kind of rugged, saltwater angling combo often costs more than a day’s charter, but not the Seafire setup. You’ll find this rod and reel combo for $129.99 at your nearest Bass Pro Shops store and on online.
