PENN Ocean Assassin Game rods feature SLS3 blank construction. SLS3 construction uses inner and outer spiral wrap layers of carbon fiber to sandwich middle layers of alternating longitudinal carbon and glass. The spiral wraps maintain a round cross section in the blank when under load which helps the blank handle higher loads. The middle layers of unidirectional carbon and glass create the backbone of the rod by utilizing the strength of glass combined with the lightweight of the carbon fiber to deliver a strong, balanced, and thin rod blank. With ideal tapers and quality craftsmanship, Ocean Assassin rods should be your first choice when looking for an offshore trolling rod. Every Ocean Assassin rod is equipped with top quality components including Pac Bay® Roller Guides, Fuji ring guides, PacBay® bent Butts and reel seats. EVA foregrips give anglers added comfort for long battles and maximize grip against hard pulling fish.

Shimano Tiagra 50 WLRSA Game Reel + Shimano Status Blue Water Bent Butt Game 24-37kg Rod
Shimano Tiagra 50 WLRSA Game Reel is geared specifically to handle not only the fish themselves but also the harsh saltwater environment. Perfectly suited for chasing down Stripeys, this rod features a slightly darker, heavier gold anodising, a newly designed Septon power handle and a drilled drag quadrant with a drag curve that's better suited to New Zealand conditions.
The heavier anodising makes these reels even more resistant to the ravages of saltwater, while the click stop drag quadrant permits more precise drag adjustments. The counterbalanced handle falls easily to hand when striking a fish and makes winding easier during the course of a long fight. It’s rubberised ‘tackiness’ combats sweaty hands which, as you may well know, can be a problem during the course of a long hard-fought fight.
Another major rule of game fishing is that the leverage you create in a chair or stand-up harness with a big marlin, tuna or shark on the other end of the line places a HUGE amount of pressure on the tackle. That’s exactly why Shimano has made the Tiagra’s one piece, machine-cut frame from a 7mm aluminium tube (the thickest on the market). Team that up with the A-RB bearings, heavy duty stainless steel gears, a two speed shifting mechanism and you are guaranteed a reel that is as serious at catching fish as you are. Choose the Shimano Tiagra 50 WA, you’ll need nothing else.
Shimano Metal Series
The Metal construction showcased in some of Shimano's finest reels now appears throughout their line of Metal Series products. Metal frames not only keep moving parts in precise alignment, they also feature the use of the latest anodising, plating and painting techniques for beautiful and durable finishes.
A-RB are made of stainless steel that has been through the A-RB process. At least 10 times more corrosion resistant than standard stainless steel ball bearings. Easy maintenance no-shield design allows for easy flushing of debris and easy lubrication. Increased bearing speed-no shield design and lighter viscosity lubrication reduce friction and allow the bearing to spin faster and longer.
Shimano Aluminium Cold Forged Spool
These spools provide strength and durability over diecast aluminium or graphite spools.
2 Speed Gearing
This mechanism is designed so that gear changes are quick and easy, even when fighting a fish. The low gear ratio used for high-power retrieves is selected by pushing the button on the base of the handle. Return to the high-speed ratio by sliding the release button along the handle shank. By using two sets of gears, the drive and pinion gears are always engaged. There is no gear meshing during the shift.
