BIG TUNA / Tuna

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.

The pin-thread color will be changed according to power category (as of 2020 shipment). The light class 85F will have silver, the middle class 83 will have blue, the heavy class 85 and 710 will have red and the power class 73 and 76 will have champagne gold color pin threads.
In addition, the name of the models will be imprinted in the butt spacer for easier identification for those anglers who take numerous models on a boat.

・Static load comparison of BIG TUNA 85F & BIG TUNA 83 (6kg load)
Although, BIG TUNA 83 that have been set as middle class is recommended for PE8, if you are in situation that you have to cast light and small lure when your target is feeding on small sardines PE6 will be recommended to get more distance. A still weight of 6kg is loaded onto 85F and 83 supposing that you fish with PE6. Both models have moderate flexibility on belly section so even though those got length, you can maintain your position while fighting easily.

・Static load comparison of BIG TUNA 85 & BIG TUNA 710 (10kg load)
These two models are the core of the series capable of use with various size lures for different bait sizes. The 85 is an extended model of the 710 with a sharper tip section when casting. Although the long length blank may feel stiffer, the butt section of the 710 is predominantly stronger.

・Static load comparison of BIG TUNA 76 and BIG TUNA 73 (10kg load)
These models will assist anglers for situations where large lures are required due to the targets feeding on large baits such as dolphin fish. At a 45°angle, both the 73 and 76 can be seen to have the same power. However, once the rod is lifted even higher, the 76 will start bending closer to the body, reducing the load on the angler. The 73 has a sharp casting feel while able to fight the fish speedily.

静荷重比較

In some areas, the size of what was once said to be large size fish has grown from 100kg to 200kg and the 200kg to 300kg, requiring added models catered for these larger fish.
With the ever changing size of tuna and fishing conditions, it has become difficult to chose the most suited rod. So as of 2020 models, we have set the power category as follows in order for a more comprehensive understanding. The 85, 710, 73, 76 are all in the same line max category however the 73 and 76 have been designed with a higher breakage point suited for targeting 200kg class fish which are in a different power category from the 85 and 710.

BIG TUNA 83 JAPAN Special
  • IN STORES NOW
This model was developed with “lure control” and “fight” as its main focus, but it goes without saying that casting is also outstanding. It is a PE6~8 middle class rod not only able to pinpoint cast but also able to utilize small mouthed diving poppers and diving pencils required for an attack. You will be able to realize the evolution of our BIG-TUNA series with its lightness and outstanding balance, allowing anglers to cast all day long. Furthermore, the bending point is set close to the body enabling anglers to easily bend in and capitalize on the butt power with little effort.

BIG TUNA 85F JAPAN Special
  • IN STORES NOW
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.

BIG TUNA 76 JAPAN Special
  • IN STORES NOW
This model is for anglers with their sights on Bluefin tuna weighing over 200kg. Similar to the 73, this 76 is capable of not only casting large lures mostly used when the targets are feeding on dolphin fish (mahi-mahi), but also allows anglers to cast and control the lighter (60g) sinking pencils for smaller baits. The difference from the 73 will be the contrasting fight style. While possessing strong butt power to constantly apply pressure on the fish, we have drastically reduced the load on the angler by bringing the bending point closer to the angler, allowing for a prolonged fight.
