Seeker Black Steel™ composite blanks are built from longitudinal 120g graphite carbon fiber, E-type fiberglass, and a proprietary resin bonding system that allows us to combine the two materials without fear of de-lamination. Our Black Steel™ blanks have long been the standard in the industry. They feature slightly softer tip actions to accomodate the use of braided lines, whilst retaining a powerful bottom-end for the pulling power to stop the hardest fighting fish swimming. Black Steel™ blanks use a polyurethane high gloss coating with UV inhibitors. This coating has been found to be the most durable and the most long lasting of any that have been used in the past.
