Due to high cork prices & customer requests for lower pricing, we are proud to introduce the green freindly Cob rod, after you catch your fish you have an idea for a side dish! :D

Thanks CG., it takes some prep work to make it hold up to the elements, but whats neat the cob already has a pre-made hole!

What is the life expectacy of the cob handle. I know as a kid I had a cob pipe that lasted long enough form mom to catch me smoking. That was a couple of years.! looks like it has a polimer coating.

Foul hook; Yes it does, thats what I meant by prep work, had to rasp off the fuzz down to the solid part then prime coat it with urathane, then sand off the rough O.D. after mounting it I coated it with rod coat, it should last for years.
