«The Akada Sentinel 
never fails a setting!»

 
  Akada Sentinel  
 


It’s Micael Gonçalves, a devout spinning fan who has been taking to the limits, who says so. «It’s an amazing rod!», he adds. Looking at the pictures, it’s no surprise

 
 

«I’ve been testing the new Akada Sentinel 270 and it’s a wonderful rod… I got some catches and it’s just brutal! The Akada can’t get enough. It's just staggering, I never fail a hook setting with it».

 
 

Sentinel


The Sentinel is made in high quality, industry standard materials, like the Fuji Alconite line guides and the ultrahigh modulus carbon of its blank, chief responsible for the amazing lightness of the two models available: an impressive 5.4 oz (155 g) for the longest one (10 ft) and 5.1 oz for the shortest (9 ft).

 

In spite of that, the 15-50 g CW, its tremendous brawn and its longevity turn the Sentinel into a must-have for all serious spinning fans. ■

SURF CASTING

 
 

6345-450 Imperium

 
  6345-450 Imperium  
 

The blank, produced in high modulus nanocarbon from Mitsubishi, is the main talking point of this very interesting rod. Thinner, lighter and more comfortable than usual, it shows a remarkable throwing capacity (up to 300 g), as well as a high rigidity in its first two sections, balanced by a rather progressive behavior of the powerful tubular tip section. Ad the Fuji components and details like the ergonomical handle and you can see why the Imperium is among surf casting’s top current references.

 
   
 
 
 

SURF CASTING

 
 

Hurricane 75

 
  Hurricane 75  
 

Vega’s new top of the line for surf casting includes a much slower oscillation of the reel, due to a high precision worm shaft. This makes for a very regular line deposit in reel-ins, which will reflect in longer casts. The casting ability of the reel can also be seen in the reel’s conic shape, also meant to help in longer casts. The titanium axis, the ten Japanese-made ball bearings and the sealed drag are other talking points in a real fishing machine that will never leave your preferences.

 
   
 
 
 

SURF CASTING

Surf Tech

 
  Surf Tech  
  Nylons have come a long way in the last few years and the Potenza Surf Tech is a great example. Entirely manufactured in Japan with high-end materials, it proves soft and flexible right from the start, showing a high sensitivity to fish bites, which makes for easier hook settings, and a high resistance. It’s available in 300 m spools (0.30, 0.35 and 0.40 mm diameters) or 1000 m spools (0.16, 0.18, 0.20, 0.22 and 0.25 mm diameters).
