WITH the increase in swimbait fishing and techniques spreading right around the country for species such as Murray cod, jewfish and barra, Samaki has designed two specific actions to suit the Australian market. The 7’9” model is designed for medium to large swimbaits up to 5oz whilst the 8’0″ model targets the bigger timber swimbait lures up to 8oz.
Both have a long double-handed butt design, which is detachable at the fore grip, enabling easier transport and increased power whilst fighting fish all without the loss of action.
In designing this series Samaki said the team took into account the need for accurate size guide requirements. In the US market they tend to fish monofilament straight though where as in Australia we fish braid with heavy fluorocarbon leader adding to the need of having bigger guide sizing.
All Samaki Zing Xtremes sport Fuji Reel Seats, Fuji guides, ultra hard EVA camouflaged grips and are a blend of 30 and 40 tonne Japanese carbon to obtain the right action when throwing large swimbait lures.
RRP starts $349.95
