GRAND IMPERIAL VERTICAL COMPETITION

In the world hunting vertical game we at Patriot Design have tried, tested and used many different currently existing rods. From this experience is born the GRAND IMPERIAL Vertical competition range. These are the best of the best. Both supreme and unrivalled.

Naturally when hunting in deep water a strong rigid rod with a strong tip is preferable or control of the jig is ineffective. Usually these rods are 5ft 8 inches long and very tough.

But when hunting the vertical game directly beneath the boat, continuous wide sliding of the cyber metal jig is required. Unlike the 5 GRAND IMPERIAL World Hunting Explorer rods previously released, the 4 GRAND IMPERIAL Vertical Competition rods are shorter and offer greater more subtle control of a level yet to be seen. They are the Katana of the vertical game.

Other rods available in the world are short too but, that is all they are. PD Brand GRAND IMPERIAL Vertical competition rods are most definitely NOT just short. They are constructed with Aramid fiber, (Kevlar), which makes for immense strength and torque. Add to this perfect balance in the belly of the rod and you have ultimate control with which to battle the monsters you will face.

PD Brand are again raising the benchmark and taking vertical competition to the next level. We want you to hold these rods and understand the superior manufacture, technology and design that makes PD Brand the leader in the world of hunting.
