The entire series have a moderate action, with different powers between all the models. This feature brings many advantages to the fishing action, making it extremely pleasant and more effective while casting and fighting the fish.
In any pike fishing session, casting bulky and heavy baits is an action repeated countless times, which overload the fisherman’s shoulders and back muscles, reducing their performance over time. This series of rods is developed starting from the idea to have not only a performing tool, but which helps also to increase the performance of the fisherman himself. The simple way with which this series of rods allows us to easy cast even large and heavy lures, is truly incredible. The rod gently accompanies each cast in every phase of the parabola, highly decreasing the possibility of errors or recoils, allowing a pleasant and continuous fishing action.
Anyone who regularly practice pike fishing, certainly knows how easily this large predator manages to unhook during the fight. There are many things that increase this possibility: the huge and fragile mouthparts, the wild attitude while attacking and fighting, the use of big baits that create unfavorable levers and the extremely stiff gear (rod, braid and tight drag). For all these reasons, over the years, we realize that the use of moderate action rods, but with an excellent backbone, highly decreases the chances of unhooking. The countless tests done on the water have shown that every Blackbay’s rods helps the fisherman during the fight, reducing the numbers of unhooked fish.
We chose to make all the rods of this series with a long average lenght, starting from a minimum of 7’6 ” up to the longest 9’0″. The longer length of the rods allowed us to create important handles, which are essential not only for increasing the lever during the casting action, but also for a considerable comfort in the grip. A greater length also guarantees greater power while strike the fish, allowing us to be even more effective in this critical phase even at long distances.
We favored the overall lightness of the tool, both in the choice of components and assembly style. The excellent balance makes these rods incredibly comfortable, not only during the casting action but also in the retrieving action.
Every rod is entirely assembled with Fuji components, both for the rings and plates, which guarantee resistance and reliability over time.
