AWOL 2 is standard Tonkin cane model. If you fish in the big river, you still need a strong butt to hold the power of the big trout. Then you need Tonkin. Tonkin canes which Awol are using are all dried over thirty years. Action is medium and parabolic. The varnishing of AWOL rod is just a stunning beauty. We(EWA) believes AWOL is one of the most beautiful finished rods among many beautiful bamboo rods in Japan.
