Isn’t it time to get ready for this season’s migration? Tenryu Casting Rod Spike Latest Models Big Tuna Model & Inshore Big Game Model

SKH782S-XX” model for fishing against tuna with PE No. 10-12

Spike has two models: the normal Spike, which targets everything from light casting games to large fish in coastal waters, and the expert series Spike XPG, which pursues performance by focusing exclusively on large fish for casting. The most powerful model of both will be released in 2024.

Let us start with the Spike XPG. Up until now, the Spike XPG lineup has included the SKX832-H, which is suitable for using 130g plugs with a lower limit of 50-60g with a PE size of 6-8 for tuna, and the SKH832S-HH, which is compatible with plugs up to 150g with a lower limit of 60-70g with a PE size of 8-10 for tuna. However, this was not enough to satisfy the recent Japanese market. However, this model alone cannot handle the large bluefin tuna that have been making noise in the Sea of Japan in recent years, so in 2024 the SKH782S-XX with even more power will be completed and released. And it will be released around this summer.

This strongest model is designed to easily handle plugs from about 100g to 230g with PE No. 10-12. The length is slightly shorter than previous models to emphasize casting performance, and the action is designed to catch large fish, reducing the burden on the angler when fighting a hit, Assist grip is adopted to support anglers fighting for a long time.
