Sceptre PRO-Tournament Kite Rod Winthrop Tip & Aluminum Butt
When selecting a kite rod most anglers tend to select an inexpensive rod. Reasoning dictates that since the rod is not going to be used to fight a fish, the least expensive choice is best. The weakest point of most kite rods is the rod tip guide. The passage of the braided line together with swivels will immediately begin to eat away the metal of the rod tip guide. Eventually, the line will go through the metal creating a rough surface that will break the line. The breakage of the kite line, while the kite is in flight, may result in losing the kite as well as your release clips, baits, and swivels, not to mention a trophy fish! Our Sceptre PRO Tournament Series Kite Rod eliminates that problem through the use of the solid stainless steel Winthrop Kite Tip. The Winthrop Kite Tip is by far the strongest kite tip ever manufactured, solid stainless steel tip with no welds. The Winthrop tip guide will not break when spectra braided lines, dacron, or swivels are passed through it.
The Sceptre PRO Tournament Series Kite Rod is a full sized kite rod measuring at 36 inches in length, the butt section is 14 inches so the bottom of the kite reel does not touch your gunwales. This tournament grade super heavy duty kite rod features an aluminum uni-butt that can accommodate any size electric kite reel. The aluminum uni-butt features ferrules that tighten the reel towards the gimbal, which prevents your electric reel from coming loose from the rod during long tournament hauls in heavy seas. We use aluminum uni-butts from Stuart Industries or American Tackle. Click on PICTURES Tab above for larger pictures of our kite rod.
When I designed our entire line of Sceptre Tournament Series Fishing Rods I took all these known flaws out of the equation. My focus was to build a line of tournament tuned fishing rods of impeccable quality. Sceptre tournament-quality performance-driven rods will exceed your expectations.
Sceptre PRO Tournament Series Kite Rod Winthrop Tip & Aluminum Butt
Yes, this is a pricey kite rod, however, it is nothing short of perfection! My Sceptre PRO Tournament Series Kite Rod is hands down the best kite rod you will ever use. The PRO Tournament Series features an aluminum uni-butt where the threads tighten towards the butt. This feature serves the following purposes:
A. The reel will not come loose when running offshore
B. No need to "tighten" the threads when kites are deployed
C. The reel tightens on to the rod as you run offshore
Each rod features the solid stainless steel Winthrop Kite Tip. The Winthrop Kite Tip will NOT break when Spectra line, as well as the SPRO swivels, are used. This is a very important feature because the guide will not fail while the kite is in flight. Given the cost of fishing kites and release clips, the last thing you want is a kite setup that is lost due to the failure of the rod tip.
The Sceptre PRO Tournament Series Kite rod measures a full 36 inches, the butt section is 14 inches so the bottom of the kite reel does not touch your gunwales. This allows the angler to easily clip the line to the release clips at a comfortable arm's length, no need to reach out! In addition to the aluminum uni-butt, the rod features an EVA foregrip, and a lure keeper to attach your release clips while running offshore.
I designed Sceptre Fishing Rods after years of fishing with rods that lacked ergonomics and functionality. There are many "cheaper" rods to choose from, however none will perform like our Sceptre Rods. Please feel free to email or call me if you have any questions regarding our line of Sceptre Tournament Series Fishing Rods. All of our rods are made here in the USA where I control the quality of our product.
