With the new development of this series, we are sure that we have even succeeded in topping the excellent qualities of its illustrious predecessors.
We have now made the new lightweight and powerful blank, made of high-modulus carbon, even faster and even slimmer. The loading properties of the blank have also been improved even further, with a positive effect on greater casting distances (even with lightweight baits). When it comes to sensitivity, there has been another leap forward.
The new Black Pearl allows for perfect control over casting direction, and, when using jig heads with soft lures, every ground contact of the lead head is transmitted to the hand with its typical ‘tock’. The powerful backbone, which ensures reliable lifting and optimum control of the fish while it is being played, makes the Black Pearl the ideal companion on the water. The rod series is fitted with stable high quality SIC guides, VSS reel seat and high quality Duplon handles.
Also new in the range are baitcasting rods (1.90m at 20g casting weight / 2.10m at 40g casting weight), and special 5-part Travel-Spin rods (2.70m with 60g and 80g casting weights; see page 61). For heavy-duty fishing with large shads, there are the Black Pearl Shad rods in 2.4m and 2.7m with a casting weight of 170g, which are also ideal for spin fishing for catfish.
