The Gravitate 2.0 series deviates a bit from the rest of the slow pitch lineup that Temple Reef offers. While it retains the high quality components, 2 piece blank design and overall light weight of the Levitate it offers a different bend for a different subset of fishing. These rods have a softer bend, putting a bit more leverage on your side when fishing. They are especially good for shallower applications which will let you impart more of an action to your jigs. This is the perfect all around series for the SoCal market, we don’t fish as deep making it a lot easier to control your jig and keep it in front of you. They are great for private boating in the local waters and fishing sport boats on anchor, so if you end up doing any bottom fishing trips I would highly recommend looking at these as the first choice. The lighter G1’s will be nice for our sand bass, calico bass and rockfishing while the heavier ones will be great for the bigger reds, sheephead, ling cod, seabass and yellowtail fishing. All of the Gravitate rods come with a soft but durable rod cover. The Gravitate series features a traditional guide layout, which may be preferable for some if they are not used to spiral wrapped rods.
