The Deep Action Load (DAL) series of rods were designed for anglers who prefer a more relaxed stroke. These rods offer full flexing blanks, firm tips and fast recovery. You want a light presentation with a #18 PMD? This rod series will do it. How about deep nymphing with a stonefly or ripping a streamer through a logjam? These rods will do that too. DALs are highly versatile with a forgiving flex that still provides strong performance. Designed to fish, not for the parking lot shoot out!
Classic vs. Vintage vs. Presentation
Burkheimer trout rods are available in three distinct build styles, the only difference is hardware and cosmetics. Whether you choose a Vintage, Presentation, or Classic, they all feature the same solid Burkheimer action. It starts with the blank and we build it from there.
