Big Tuna 87AS Japan Special As its name suggests, the AS (Accuracy Shot) model is designed to accurately cast lures into the feeding fish. In addition to the steady blank kick-back after casting, we have equipped two RV guides on the butt enabling an extremely smooth line ejection from the reel through to the rod. The casting ability will support anglers when the feeding frenzy is far or in heavy conditions casting into the wind. It is not only able to cast large lures but the blank will also allow the use of small 40g size lures. This middle class rod will assist anglers with its taper design ideal to slowly but surely lift the fish from the deep while being able to high-stick the rod. It is an ideal rod to target Tuna around 50~60kg. We hope this new concept will open up new possibilities for your future fishing.

*If you prefer a more speedy fight (same size fish) we recommend the 83. (87AS is 1 rank lighter compared to the 83. Furthermore, the 87AS is a totally different model and design to the 87 which has been discontinued. )
