I like a thicker than average good quality cork handle.
I like a strong but progressive blank with good recovery.
I don't like a hook keeper that snags up the line and digs into my fingers when walking with the rod.
I like Fuji Sic single leg guides.

I coudn't find a factory built rod with these spec's, so I built one. I'll be building another; it's my favourite rod.
