Bluewater fishos looking for a quality 24kg game rod for taming tuna and other powerful pelagics should check out Nitro's new specialty game rod - the Tuna Winch.
Nitro says its 24kg fully rollered 5ft 7inch, stand-up stroker game rod is built from indestructible Torayca carbon fibre, the same epoxy toughened advanced pre-preg, composite material that’s used by Boeing in their next-generation 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
The Tuna Winch comes fully mounted with AFTCO’s Heavy Duty roller guides that feature AFLON high performance bearings. Also fitted is Nitro’s Winch-Grip, a finger-contoured fore-grip that eliminates the tendency of the hand to slide down the grip, ensuring maximum leverage during a long fight.
The TW's heavy duty reel seat features fully machined anodised aluminium body and hoods with dual locking rings. The gimbal is similarly machined, anodized aluminium with a snug fitting durable rubber/vinyl compound textured butt cap for protection.
Recommended retail price is $499.95.
