Kuroshio ‘Black Tide’ Slow Jigging Rod


The new 6’6” Kuroshio ‘Black Tide’ Slow Jigging Rods are ultra-lightweight for all day fishing comfort using high modulus carbon for a fast, powerful action and to impart maximum movement to the jigs. The graphite reel seat and lowrider style guides are equally at home using a conventional multiplier reel, or turn the rod up the other way and team it up with one of the new generation fixed spool jigging reels.

At 6ft 6in the ‘Black Tide’ rods are the ideal length for slow jigging – long enough to ‘work’ the jig effectively, but short enough to apply pressure and set the hook well. The 70-120g is the medium weight of three rods, rated for lines of 15-25lbs and jigs of 70-120g covering a range of applications but mainly for bass and in shore wreck or reef fishing.

The two-piece blanks break down at the handle to a convenient 58” for travelling and are finished in a lustrous black with subtle self-colour whipping and gold trim. Every rod comes in a nylon rod bag, with mesh front to aid drying after use and cleaning.
