TFO have a new composite glass/graphite Bluewater rod just going into production. No hundreds yet, but one field tester landed 14 YFT to 65 lbs. in a single day with it and the new TFO Hayden reel. Tester reported that he actually tried to break the rod, but could not get it to snap.
Both rod & reel combined will sell for less $$ than a single high-end rod. The rod will cast anything from 12 to 15-weights.
