One Bass, a brand founded by a group of bass enthusiasts, delivers dependable performance coupled with unbeatable value and eye-catching cosmetics to show angler’s attitude and personality. The One Bass ALFEN Series Fishing Rod and Reel Combo is a versatile all-around combo at an affordable price, making fishing accessible, simple, and fun.
The ALFEN Series Casting Combo features a highly durable One Bass rod and a dependable fishing reel. The fishing rod provides medium-heavy power and fast action, making it ideal for bass fishing or other types of freshwater fishing with artificial lures. The rod is made of 24-Ton Carbon Matrix blank and stainless steel guides with titanium oxide inserts that deliver sensitivity and performance. The two-piece construction of the rod makes it easy to transport and store.
The fishing reel is equipped with 9 shielded, stainless-steel high-quality ball bearings plus an instant anti-reverse bearing and 8.0:1 Gear Ratio. It features a proven magnetic braking system that has 10 magnets to exert consistent pressure throughout the cast to boost cast range and accuracy and allows you to move the brake closer to the spool with just the turn of a dial. The fishing reel combines a super-strong machined aluminum spool, so you can spend more time fishing.
The ALFEN Series rods offer better balance for lighter feel, improved components, and eye-catching cosmetics for a more modern look. The rod’s advanced polymer grips enhance sensitivity, reduce fatigue and weight, and are exceptionally slip-resistant, giving you maximum control over your fishing rod in all conditions.
