These brand new Opal rods received a lot more than just a face-lift. Using a brand new resin and surface refinement we managed to reduce the rods weight a lot. This weight reduction is supported by the latest development in Fuji reel-seats improving the rods action and sensitivity especially in the handle section.
Contact is much better now and one can perfectly feel and control every movement of the bait. No matter if you’re fishing lakes, currents or tricky environments, these rods perform and deliver. Look at them and fish them – there are things one can not describe!
These highly sensitivity rods are ideal for boat fishing with modern plastic baits or, for example, as Fireball rigs, performing perfectly when close to the bottom.
The rods are equipped with a highly sensitive tip, which betray even timid fish, as well as allowing them to easily suck in the bait. The slim but powerful semi-parabolic blank is characterised by its speed and lightness, while the rod’s powerful action makes for confident and firm control over the fish on the hook.
Opal Vertical rods are available in 1.90m with 19g casting weight and in 2.00m with 30g casting weight.
These new Dropshot rods have been developed especially for fishing with modern artificial baits. The S-T-S full-carbon tip provides perfect bait guidance and allows fish to suck the bait in with e ase. The powerful backbone rapidly causes the fish to tire, giving full control over even the biggest ‘customers’.
The slimline blank, in conjunction with the new FUJI TVS reel seat (in carbon optic) transfers every bite straight back to the hand section. The FUJIAlconite guides ensure the line glides smoothly and free of friction for really long casts.
At 2.10m and with a 10g casting weight, the shorter model is perfect for fishing from boats or sheet-pile walls, while the models at 2.40m (casting weight 15g) and 2.85m (casting weight 20g) have been conceived with bank fishing in mind.
The new two-part, high-performance Jerk rods have been designed especially for big fish. When it came to developing these rods, SPORTEXfocused in particular on a slim, lightweight blank that would nevertheless retain a lot of strength.
The fast, hard rod tip allows for lively, controlled strikes with large and smaller jerk baits. The sensitive blank conveys even the most timid bite into the hand section, while the powerful backbone keeps the hook firmly in place when bringing the fish up and playing it in. The optimised balance weights integrated into the grip guarantee tireless casting, and let the rod sit comfortably in the hand.
FUJI Alconite guides and a new carbon-look FUJI Baitcast reel seat round off the sporty design. Jerk rods are available in lengths of 180cm with 70g casting weight and 190cm with 100g casting weight.
