AAAA select cork rings are used on all grips as well as composite caps for added strength. The Opal 8 wt. and 9 wt. rods have full wells grips, while 10 wt. and 11 wt. rods incorporate the Beulah force grip for added leverage. We rounded out the rods with a custom Beulah reel seat with engraved logo and uni directional locking ring.
Opal grips use hand select AAAA Portuguese corks with the least possible inclusions for excellent durability and cosmetics.
