New Okuma UFR Boat rods


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 SPIN

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.

Until we put our hands on one and review it you can see more on

After falling in love in fishing as a young boy I never looked back. I am grateful to my grandfather for embedding the love and passion for fishing and nature into my life and for all the hours and patience spent fishing with me. The older I get the more I realize how valuable gift that was. Thank You!! My passion for fishing, sports, movement, nature and people led me to become a fitness trainer and to dive deeper into science of human movement, nutrition and health. After getting a long lusted fishing kayak which I was dreaming about for years a whole new world and horizons opened. With a kayak my fishing got a new meaning and is getting to a new higher level. Kayak fishing perfectly conjoined my passion for fishing, movement and exploring, making my bonds with nature and appreciating life beauty to become even more intense. I am looking forward to this journey, and as a father of two I hope I will transfer at least a piece of my love for fishing and nature preservation to them.
