ROD TEMPLE REEF RONIN
The Ronin 80 is surprisingly light and well balanced for what is considered a heavy stick bait rod able to handle the largest lures at 200 gram. The action starts in the tip down to the middle third of the blank and continues right through the blank when under full pressure.
The tip has all the softness required to swim surface and sinking stick baits, especially when lying slack line before sweeping a surface stick bait to provoke the “S” action. The anglers feel is in command and can swim his lure with total control.
The blank transmits all the important movement and vibration of the lure. One can close its eyes and focus on the feeling via the handle and be alerted of the slightest knock or kick in the lure.
At 8’ long the ratio length to arm lever is the best to work a stick bait and maintain manoeuvrability. Balance and sensitivity are the key words that explain the design of the Ronin 80 in working a lure.
