The Tournament Concept series of rods are built using Okuma’s patented Unidirectional Fibre Reinforcement technology. These rods, designed for Kiwi anglers by the team at Composite Developments, are manufactured using a patented process with an outer layer of longitudinal fibres around the rod blank to significantly increase strength and power in the tip section. This offers lifting power and strength up to four times conventional graphite rods. The Jig rods in the range are lightweight and powerful with a parabolic action to exert maximum pressure on the fish. Designed specifically for New Zealand conditions, the Tournament Concept jig rods are a high performance option that represents extraordinary value for money.

Tournament Concept 200-350g
The Tournament Concept 5’3” 200-350g rod is available in both spin and overhead combination, and with its wide jig rating and immense amount of power it is an ideal allrounder for almost all applications around New Zealand from places like the Hauraki Gulf right through to remote spots like the Ranfurly Banks. With a lightweight blank and huge amounts of stopping power, the Tournament Concept 200-350g is an ideal option for New Zealand’s hard fighting kingfish.
Tournament Concept 100-250g Acid Wrap
The Tournament Concept 100-250g model features an ‘Acid-Wrap’ guide configuration eliminating twisting of the rod blank and is an ideal choice for lighter jigs in coastal regions. It works jigs throughout its recommended weight range extremely well, and has an impressive amount of power for a lightweight jig rod. It also doubles as an excellent live bait rod with its slightly softer tip, making it a great all-round kingfish option.
