Since its introduction the Tool DH EVA rod has achieved an almost cult like status. With a matt anti-glare blank, high quality fittings and unique EVA grip it was a challenge to get even the most conservative of anglers to take it out onto the water and test it. Those that did however completely understood why it was made this way. Super smooth performance, plenty of underlying power when needed and as for the EVA grip... it offered excellent feedback through the cast to let you know you were still in control.
With this ever growing popular yet radical design, we knew it wouldn't suit everyone. So, for 2017 we've introduced Tool DH cork. Maintaining both looks and performance we've added the following cork grip options to the family: 12.6, 13.0, 14.0 and 15.0.
In addition, we've also introduced three new 11.6 models in weights #5, #7 and #8 (cork only). These short light DH rods are excellent tools not only for small waters but also for high water conditions on larger rivers when fish are often near the bank, not to mention how convenient these short rods are when you are forced to fish under trees or in otherwise restricted space.
So now there's a TOOL for everyone!
