If using swimbaits in the range of power of this rod, you will be pleasantly surprised by the ease it provides. The length of the PLC 742 H greatly facilitates the task of power fishing since the distances of casts obtained are significantly improved. Its Regular Fast action makes it very versatile and allows you to also use it for power fishing soft lure or with rubber jigs. Its perfect balance and lightness of the blank provide great comfort when pitching or flipping, which is remarkable.
Players lure rods use the latest generation of Japanese ‘Toray’ carbon sheets whose multi-axial fibers are impregnated with epoxy resins reinforced with carbon-nano balls. These are spread more deeply in the heart of the fibers unlike nanotubes usually employed in the fishing industry. This results in increased resistance to impact, micro-cracks and compression, while remarkably reducing the weight of the rod and improving their performance.
Alconite or reinforced aluminum oxide, is the third material on FUJI quality scale for the construction of the ceramic ring of the ring.
It is second to SiC in terms of thermal conductivity, sensitivity, sliding and abrasion resistance.
It is resistant to the friction of braided lines.
The polished stainless steel frame has a great resistance to marine corrosion.
The Alconite FUJI is very often used as a component on mid-high range rods.
Always at the forefront of innovation, Sakura offers to benefit from the advanced technology of Fuji with the use of new rings of the “K” series.
The development of these rings has resulted in an uncommon frame profile that cancels any risk of tangling when casting.
Deployed on all Players rods, “K-Frame” rings will bring great security and comfort whatever the conditions.
Players rods are equipped with Fuji reel seats.
Robustness, ergonomics and precision in their construction are the characteristics of these essential accessories for the proper maintenance of the reel on the rod, a guarantee of comfort and efficiency.
The reel “PTS” is ultra-lightweight and ergonomic. Its innovative design significantly improves the user experience when holding the reel in the hollow of the palm of the hand (palming). Although it seems bigger than previous models, the PTS is lighter and provides a large contact area between your fingers and the blank and between the foot of the reel and the blank. This greatly improves your perception of your lure swim and the most subtle touches. It boosts the sensitivity exceptional blanks canes Players!
Often copied but never equaled, the Fuji reel seats are true references in the world market. They mainly equip the most high end rods for freshwater or sea. So you also require the FUJI quality!
Compact and dense EVA foam used on our rods ensures a comfortable fit regardless of the weather conditions and perfectly transmit the vibrational messages sent by your lure or you target fish.
For this premium range of rods, we opted for the construction of carbon monobloc butt. Thus, by reducing the number of components (cork, foam, whipping, resin, glues and varnishes) we considerably reduced the size and weight while significantly improving ease of use and sensitivity of the rod which is in contact with your forearm and your hand.
