The G1000 name has a treasured history in salmon and steelhead fisheries. In fact, we'd bet this rod series has accounted for more catches of these magnificent fish than any other in the world, bar none. The secret of their success: a high-quality fishing tool at an honest American value. Affordable excellence. G1000 rods feature natural graphite blanks, Fuji guides, top quality reel seats and cork grips.
