The Samaki Archer series of rods hits the nail on the head with design and componentry. They are built on crisp matte black blanks which transmit the slightest of bites, and features include carbon locking rings with gold trim detail, composite AA Cork and Ultra Hard EVA grips plus the new Fuji Fazlite guides. The soft yet firm cork is chiselled perfectly for your grip, and turns the rod into an extension of your body. The first model is the extra light 6’9 2-6lb spin, designed for finesse anglers targeting the likes of bream and trout. Then there’s the light 6’11 4-8lb spin model – the ultimate all-round estuary rod for bream and flathead, as well as freshwater species like bass and yellowbelly. The medium, heavy and extra heavy 7’0” spin models are designed for inshore plastics or throwing slugs at pelagics, with a model to suit your lure choice. Casting options range from the new 7’0” medium-heavy 10-17lb suited to big rubbers and vibes, to the 6’0” medium-heavy and heavy models designed for Murray cod, barra and jacks.
