Most Tuna rods are designed for lighter lines and parabolic in design under load.
They do not provide sufficient lifting power to put the heat on stubborn tuna, resulting in undue fatigue on the angler.
If you cannot turn the tuna's head the fight will be very long, Temple Reef rods are all fast action and allow maximum pressure on the fish for minium fagtigue on the angler.
At Temple Reef, we believe in landing tuna in the shortest possible time as they are constantly moving, thus shorter fight time will allow the angler to land the fish quickly to move on to the next fish. On top of that we need a rod that is light enough to cast all day long and be able to deliver light lures into the fray effectively.
Black Devil blanks are built in Japan with composite materials, Fuji SiC guides and components are used to create the ultimate tuna casting rod.
Its sensitivity enables the angler to feel every movement of the lure without compromising on the lifting power to stay in control.
The lightweight construction also allows anglers to reduce casting fatigue and preserve their energy for the fight.
