Casting the Zenith was like turning up with a gun to a knife fight! It has left a big impression on me: It's seriously powerful and capable - in the right hands - of staggering line speed.

Zenith in Trout & Salmon magazines "Which 14 footer?" Review


"Wow! Nothing I've ever used even comes close to this! There's no doubt in my mind; many people in future will catch record fish to this material... and the unique ability of the Zenith to cast such a wide range of lines opens up all sorts of fishing situations."
