Snowbee Kuroshio LRF Spinning Rod - 7ft 2in - 0.5-7g. The perfect combination of Japanese design with Snowbee technology to bring you a new range of Lure spinning rods and reels at the cutting edge of modern lure fishing design.
A new range of high-tech spinning rods offering superb performance across a range of rods for all styles of lure fishing. Snowbee is the first UK company to incorporate the amazing new Microwave Guide system from American Tackle Company. These new guides use a second, smaller ring, set just behind the main stripper guide, which creates a 'funnel' effect, capturing the coils coming off a fixed spool reel when casting and incredibly, straightening them out completely. The result is then single point contact between the line and the remaining guides, reducing friction so much that casting distance is increased by as much as 24% with light lures.
Having tried this new system for themselvse, by taking the 'Microwave Challenge', where you put a conventionally rigged rod up against an identical rod rigged with the new Microwave Guides, Snowbee were convinced this was the future of Spinning Rod design and incorporated it into the new Kuroshio range.
The LRF models feature Snowbee's well proven, solid carbon tips for the ultimate flexibility and sensitivity when fishing light. Ideal for micro soft lure fishing, but with enough backbone when a poweful wrasse snatches your lure and heads for the kelp.
Kuroshio is the Japanese name for 'Black Tide', the name given to the spring current which starts off the east coast of Taiwan and flows up past the coast of Japan and on into the Pacific. This current brings the first run of spring bait-fish, hotly pursued by larger predatory fish, so is eagerly awaited by Japanese lure anglers. It therefore seemed an appropriate name for this new range, which incorporates the latest thinking in Japanese design.
Review by Darren Sheppard
This rod ticks every box . It casts very well and is very well balanced in the hand . When I have caught fish the action is very forgiving but has a very good back bone in the lower section I have caught perch and pike up to 5 lbs so far . But know I can land bigger fish with ease using this rod and patience
