This intermediate modulus/high strain graphite combination offers the ability to work short casts but with an abundance of reserve power. The Brown Bear is a faster action rod, yet is still the most forgiving high end rod. Featuring a warm Chestnut Brown color, there is no expense spared on the Brown Bear series. Highly figured wood spacers with Nickel/Silver hardware on freshwater models to the finest double locking aluminum reel seats on the saltwater models. Over sized titanium guides and tip-tops paired with perfectly shaped Full-Wells or Reversed Half Wells cork grips add to the total custom aspect of this Beartooth built series. The Burled Cork Series has special hand made cork grips by Dan Delekta. Made in Montana.
