T80 is the heaviest and the longest rod in Kakuhiro’s line ups. This is the ideal rod if you are a travel fly fisher who does not want to carry a big rod tube or case when you fly in and out. You can put this rod into your baggage, and no need to check in separately with your big rod case. Most of the Kakuhiro rod are hollowed all the way from butt to tip, but only this model has solid butt to keep enough power during the fight with a big fish.
