Aquila / Boat Casting

In the 2019 season, we have refined and added various models to the Aquila series, which have already been popular for the boat casting game.
In recent years, the Kingfish and tuna games have become more subdivided. We have brushed up our lineup to focus on specific performance in various situations and challenged ourselves to develop a blank never seen before.
In our new lineup, there are 9 models. We have categorized them into four different series, ST, MLT, MST and EX. The ST series are the most standard models, which are well balanced and fine honed to cater for various situations and various targets.
The MLT series have a combination of a flexible tip section and a stiff butt section to go after massive fish with light line. The MST series are the already popular models to go after monstrous Kingfish with sheer power and strength. The EX models have newly been introduced to the series, which are 3 piece pack rods for anglers traveling around the world.
The new Aquila series are rods built to defy the boundaries of fishing. It was our quest to seek lifting power, easy handling of lures, outstanding castability and last but not least, the ability to parry the angry fish.
We don’t simply make rods with “power”, we make rods with “strength”.

The Aquila ST series are models which have had all the standard yet important factors for the casting game fused together at a high dimension. Specifically, the standard performances of casting, lure maneuverability, hooking up the fish and fighting. They have a sharp feeling and once the rods are loaded with the fish, the bending curve will gradually transfer towards the angler, allowing for a steady fight utilizing the butt power to maintain the initiative of the fight. We have prepared 3 power classes of PE #3, #4 and #6 to cater for various species and situations.

The Aquila MLT series were developed for situations where your targets are feeding on super small baitfish (white bait) and require anglers to utilize lighter tackle or for situations where the fish are highly sensitive towards fishing vessels and require anglers to cast long distances. You can say that we had to fuse together contradicting features of casting and controlling light lures while possessing the power for large species and maintaining the initiative of massive fish during the fight. It is a new generation of rods designed to catch large species with light tackle, requiring anglers to maximize the strength of the line. This line-up of rods compliments the compilation of models produced for our off-shore series.
*The 2/4 notation on the rod means the tip section is a PE2 class while the butt section is PE4 max. (3/6 means the tip is a PE3 class while the butt is a PE6 class)

The Aquila MST series have been designed for those anglers with their sights on monstrous Kingies. The main purpose of these rods are to enable anglers to go head to head with supersize fish with the use of strong PE7~8 class line and large lures for situations when the targets are feeding on large bait fish like, dorados, needle fish, flying fish etc.
These rods are not just a stiff stick with power. On the contrary, in order to deal with sudden dives of the Kingfish, they have been designed with the bending point to transfer towards the angler as more load is applied to the blank. It is a user-friendly rod for any angler to use as you can load your weight on the rod by bending your knees during the fight.
The + symbol next to the power class indicates that the power and tenacity has been added to the usual power class.

The Aquila EX series are the ultimate 3-piece expedition pack rod without compromises. Today, anglers are flying around the world to target their dream species and the farther you go, the more limitations there are regarding your luggage. Through countless trial and error, the Aquila EX series have now come to shape and ready to travel with you wherever you go. We have prepared a PE3 and PE6 class models for use with a vast range of lures with a super sharp feel to it. Although they are 3 piece models, it possesses a sharp feel to it and anglers will be able to bend and load the butt section of the rod to stop the monstrous targets. We are confident that these models will help you catch those rare species at the most remote areas around the world.

Aquila Bending Curve
Aquila Comparison Load 3kg

Here are the comparisons of the Aquila series with a static load of 3kg. Aquila series have been categorized ST, MLT, MST and EX.
ST which have versatility and well balanced, MLT which is loaded flexibility on tip and strength on butt, MST which is employed massive power to keep huge kingfish under control and EX which is first multi piece rod for Aquila series. MLT have been built with specialized design to hunt big one with lighter line than notation on specification. Utilizing its flexible and sensitive tip section, you can cast wider range of weight of lure comfortably. Once fish is on, MLT series bend very well smoothly like seamless and parry an attack of monstrous blue runner and it can be held with higher angle than other models. It is designed to apply good amount of pressure on fish continuously. EX series have been achieved smoothness on bending curve like a seamless. Sharpness, lightness and well-balance that are hidden in blanks of EX series will make you forget that those are 3 pics casting rod.

The characteristics of the new Aquila series during the fight:
The characteristics of the rods will vary depending on the model during the fight.
●The ST and EX series have the most standard bending curve and is a well balanced rod to target various species (all species of blue-runners and light GT).
●The MLT 82-3/6 is a model capable of high sticking the rod to load and parry the fish (ideal for Kingfish and tuna).
●The MST series are designed to withstand high drag settings to stop large species (Large Kingfish, tuna and GT).
Caution when fighting:
●We would like to ask anglers to be cautious during the fight with the ST, MST and EX series. We recommend anglers to load the rod with your counter body weight by lowering your body position, instead of high sticking the rod.
●In contrast, the MLT series can withstand the anglers to high stick the rod from a lower position.
●For the ST, MST and EX series, high sticking the rod will not bring out the true power of the rod and may result in the breakage of the rod.

Aquila MST 82-9+ (2022 New)
  • COMINNG SOON

In the ever evolving Kingfish game, the need to use large lures has increased with the target feeding on large size bait-fish. The MST82-9+ was designed to enable anglers to fully-cast lures exceeding 240mm while easily controlling and maneuvering these mammoth lures. Furthermore, the Aquila MST series are especially designed to tenaciously bend-in while demonstrating outstanding lifting power when fighting against monstrous Kings in rough terrain and gushing currents.
