Favorite Rapid – light, fast, extra sensitive top class spinning rods with informative blanks
These rigid and short spinning rods allow to fully control ultralight lure actions of a wide range, from softbaits to topwater lures.
The amazingly light blanks of Favorite Rapid series are made of carbon prepreg with the modularity of 46T produced by Japanese company Toray. The butt section is enforced with eight-directional OCG wrapping, the joints of the blank are enforced with carbon fiber wrapping, not a thread. High-modulus blank requires careful usage, that is why the spinning rod is kit out with a bag and a hard tube.
The spinning rod is equipped with top quality Fuji Torzite guides with titanium framing.
Split handle's design is quite unusual but very ergonomic and functional at the same time. The combining of EVA material and skeleton reel seat make the handle light and comfortable for those, who like to put their finger on the blank as well as for those, who like tight grip.
The spinning rods of Favorite Rapid series are equipped with the most high-modulus and sensitive blanks out of the whole variety of Favorite spinning rods. The impressions received from fishing with this rod are rather unforgettable, especially after fish strikes.
The spinning rod is quite accurate and allows to cast the lure precisely next to the edge of the opposite bank. Even though the blank is extra fast, Rapid responds quickly during the fighting and wears a fish down well.

There are 4 models in the series, where three models are short "pick sticks" and one with a multi-purpose length.
The lightest and the shortest one is 632SUL-T with the casting weight up to 5 g. It weighs just about 55 g and it is a multi-purpose ultralight spinning rod for perch, chub and trout fishing at small fast rivers or "under your feet".
The ultralight model Favorite Rapid 662UL-T with the casting weight up to 7 g and is suitable for boat fishing as well as shore fishing in all cases, except fishing at far distances.
692ML-T with the casting weight up to 14 g is a model distinct for its' "bass type" features and is different from the previous models. This model is a great choiсe for those, who need a multi-purpose spinning rod for light boat perch fishing with light soft baits and chub fishing with crankbaits.
Rapid 762L-T is specialized for chub or trout fishing with the help of hard lures in the stream on small or medium rivers. Having a good sensitivity, multi-purpose length and a fast action, the rod shows good results working with small softbaits at the level of top-class specialized rods. If there is a need to choose one rod in case of uncertainty, the best choice would be Rapid 762L-T.
