The Mirage is composed of an advanced Carbon Fiber we called Net V. Traditional glass blanks tend to be heavy, thicker in diameter and lacks backbone. The Net V gives the Mirage a very soft and forgiving action while maintaining a solid backbone. The thin diameter of the Net V blank permits the Mirage to be extremely light and balanced. The Mirage series features a 2 piece option that breaks from just above the handle. This allows for compact storage and travel while ensuring the performance of a one piece rod.
