For 2017 Okuma has launched a new series of UFR rods. This rod series can cover most of the aspects of fishing, from light spinning to heavy applications as they come in few different versions;
Classic UFR BOAT
Classic UFR H-CAST
Classic UFR SEA BOAT
Classic UFR SPIN
Classic UFR TELE BOAT
Classic UFR TROLLING
They all come equiped with:
- Shaped Japanese EVA Handl
- Okuma Quality Reel seat
- Okuma Gimbal but cap
- Quality saltwater resistant components
- Mixed Carbon quality blanks
- UFR strengthened blanks
UFR (Unidirectional Fiber Reinforcement) stands for Okuma’s breakthrough technology and design in rod strength and sensitivity. UFR is an additional layer of unidirectional longitudinal fibers around the rod blank to significantly increase rod’s lifting power by 3 and a maximum strength of the rod by up to 4 times that of a standard rod blank.
UFR protects against tip breakage, the most common form of rod break. The end result is an extremely powerful and durable rod which anglers can use with confidence. You can see this looks like in video below.
With wide range of possible applications, available rod lengths and UFR technology that makes rods, especially tips stronger and more resistant to breakage makes them perfect for transport and bouncing around kayak with less fear of damaging it. Together with as far as we know more than reasonable price this rod series might be hard to beat.
