THE Samurai Reaction is where it all started.
Samurai’s premium rod range combined all the best components with new, cutting-edge build techniques and cemented Samurai as the rod company to beat. Multiple successful rod ranges later and Samurai has circled back to its eponymous rod range. The Reaction series continues to hold a special place at the top of the product line-up, so with that in mind, Samurai has introduced two new rods to the range.
The RE-212 (6’5”, 3-8lb, fast action), which is perfectly suited to working light surface lures, and RE-151 (7’4”, 2-6lb, extra-fast) are both new to the range and fill those little gaps within the line-up. They feature a triple-layer machine-rolled carbon blank, hot press baked to deliver a precise rod with no imperfections along its length.
It is combined with a totally new carbon/Duralon grip assembly called CD6 Grip Control, which stiffens the butt end of the rod, providing enhanced sensitivity and exceptional balance. The carbon quad-axial integrated blank wrap reduces torsional twist and results in a greater strength to weight ratio. It provides a crisp feel where every minute flick of the line is transferred down the rod to the angler.
Samurai Reaction rods employ class-leading Fuji Titanium Silicon Carbide guides. The matte black finish provides an understated premium appearance.
