RIPPLE FISHER BIG TUNA 85F JAPAN SPECIAL
In Japan, we have a variety of species of Tuna, including the bluefin tuna, yellowfin tuna, dogtooth etc. Each species inhabit different seas with different current conditions, water temperature, baits and sizes. Furthermore, the size of these species tend to be growing and with the evolution of our fishing tackle and the improvement of the anglers capabilities, super large size (200kg class) tuna have started being caught. In order to adapt to the ever changing conditions and situations, we have started the reconstruction of the BIG-TUNA series.
To begin with, we have added the 83 to the series in 2020 as the successor for the long hit in past years. Tuna rods are the largest and most powerful series of rods and thus require the most intricate carbon sheet patterns and techniques in order to create the blanks. We need to continue evolving and improving our techniques to keep up with the most up to date fishing techniques and style. Please stand by and look forward to future developments in the BIG-TUNA series.
BIG TUNA 85F JAPAN SPECIAL
This 85F will allow anglers to cast out small lures with great distance with the use of lines between PE3~6 and lures ranging from 18g ~ 120g. It is a tenacious and bendy rod so it is less likely for anglers to break the rod when high sticking. Use of general light tuna rods result in a long and grueling fight as angles are worried about rod breakage or line breakages, however, this 85F is not a light tackle rod. It is a new generation of tuna rods which exceed the line and knot breakage specifications. Although it possesses the power to overcome Tuna exceeding 50kg, this tolerant rod will also be ideal for casting for targets such as Yellow-tails and Kingfish in your local waters.
