Lew's Mark Zona Signature Rod

Team Lew’s has introduced a Signature Series of rods including some specifically designed by Kevin VanDam and Mark Zona.

What sets the Signature Series apart from other rods in the pro model space is FOCAS Blank technology.  This multi-layered graphite blank production process - used exclusively by Lew’s - delivers 75% greater tip strength and overall blank durability. And most critically, this innovative strength design preserves superior sensitivity.

Signature Series rods also feature next WINN’S generation polymer Dry-Tac ULTRA Grips, delivering complete rod control.  With the Dry-Tac Ultra system, anglers will experience tighter, more accurate casting, more controlled fish fighting, and all-day comfort.

Keeping in line with Lew’s tradition of attention to often overlooked details, all Signature Series rods also feature SEAGUIDE RA Premium Aluminum Oxide guide inserts.

There are 18 different actions that have been meticulously tested and tweaked to be perfectly aligned with the needs of five of the top names in fishing. Each Signature Series model is designed to be the precise action for the techniques these anglers are known for being the best in their fields.
