IMP PRO V2S rods come with sock and tube and 9ft models 6wt-12wt. Handcrafted in Woodland Washington USA. I had a chance to test this rod in an 11wt in a recent trip to the Seychelles. The 9ft 11wt was fantastic! It handled long casts with beast flies with ease using a GT line from RIO. It managed to battle big grouper, Giant Trevally, snappers, Job fish and more. The rod is super strong, perfectly fast for quick shots at any distance. I coupled this rod with a Sage Enforcer reel and had a super sweet outfit under $1200 bucks that will handle everything from Bump-head Parrot fish to big tarpon.
