We have spared no expense in creating the very best rod in its class. Impulse rods start off with a very light weight and sensitive blank that is made with a blend of high-intermediate modulus Toray graphite. Then we custom fit each and every high density EVA foam handle to fit perfectly. EVA is proven to hold up better and look better over the duration of the life of the rod. We are proud to use Fuji components and guides which have proven themselves time and time again to be the best in the industry. We are very proud to be making these fishing rods right here in Magnolia, Texas! And we appreciate our customers supporting an American company!
