There was a need for a specialist rock and surf rod to compliment the Saltiga and Saltist reels, so The Kingfisher dispatched a delegation, including an extremely competent and nationally respected angler to China to do some research, field testing and to source South Africa's best rock and surf range of rods.
The range of ultra lite (that weighs a mere 300 g)
to extra heavy (880 g) the Poseidon HMG rods will set the benchmark for the ultimate rock and surf rods developed over a two year period. The heart of any great rod is the construction of the blank. Using only the finest HMG (high modulus graphite) available, The Kingfisher has produced the lightest and strongest HMG series of rods available. The range consists of 2 ultra lite in spinning and standard option, a lite, medium, medium heavy, heavy and extra heavy in standard options to cater for any rock and surf anglers needs.
These rods are not new, they may be new to the market but several tons of fish have been landed with them over some of the toughest angling areas in the country during development.
These three piece rods are designed to load from the tip for maximum power and fast acceleration. To increase casting distance, only the best Pac Bay guides are used, the frame is one piece stamped stainless steel for strength and the ring is a diamond polished
Zirconia for durability. The reel seat is Fuji's top quality DPS winch.
