true evolution of 7 ‘XH Antidote and Furiozza who brought joy to many European fishermen, our “Pro Angler” Jean Servant who has been able to land in 2014 a fabulous maigre 1.76 m in the estuary Gironde, this Players will make help you reach a few meters further, sometimes required to go from failure to success! During our tests, the blank of this 7’4 “XH has proved its robustness without neglecting comfort of use. It is perfect for using swimbaits, grubs and shads in their standard sizes 30-60 g.
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.
To offer you the very best in the field, we have refined the assembly of this Players designed for heavy fishing in the smallest details.
The advanced ring Fuji MNAT was chosen to avoid the closure of the braid and case that could ensue when casting with heavy lures.
The mounting of spiral rings optimizes the capacity of blank, both when casting and during the fight, canceling the twists of the fibre that can cause rods to break. This arrangement also prevents the line coming to rub on the blank when it is bent under stress, which limits the breaks caused by heat friction from monofilament or braid.
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.
