The new Rovex Air Strike Advance graphite rods build on the Air Strike’s hallmark affordable high performance, adding even better looks and some new models to the range. Air Strike Advance rods are built on a modern-tapered carbon graphite blank that still delivers the same great casting distance, control and sensitivity that has made them one of Australia’s most popular light tackle casting rods at this price point. The sporty new cosmetics will turn heads, with striking maroon-red blanks fitted with metallic red trim aluminium rings, braid-friendly AC guides, ergonomic fittings and classy cork grips on selected models. Air Strike Advance anglers are spoilt for choice too, with 15 rods in the range: comprising two 5’6” baitcast rods in 6kg and 8kg that are ideal for barramundi, plus the versatile 6’2” 2-4kg baitcaster for Murray cod, yellowbelly, mangrove jack and Australian bass. In 6’ spin, there are 2-4kg and 6-12kg rods; plus 3-5kg options in 6’6”; a very nice 6’10” 2-4kg estuary lure rod; and six options in 7’, from 2-4kg up to the 8kg and 10kg models, which are ideal for casting soft plastic lures for snapper. Air Strike Advance rods offer a variety of one- or two-piece configurations across the range.
