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 softbait rods in the Tournament Concept range are widely regarded as the best value on the market, packing an incredible amount of performance and technology into an affordable package. They are very lightweight and sensitive with plenty of power through the lower section of the rod, ideal for both keeping in touch with your lure and fighting fish. Designed specifically for New Zealand conditions and with multiple options available, the Tournament Concept softbait range is an excellent high-performance option at an affordable price.
