The Nomura Stick Special is simply an amazing rod for the money. If you are going away traveling and searching for big fish whilst using stick baits, poppers and heavy metals then the Stick Special is perfect for the job.
The action is a powerful fast action that will work poppers easily. When the rod is bent into a fish the action is through enough to cope with long runs from tuna and other long fighting fish. Fitted with Fuji K-Series guides and a Fuji reel seat.
Matched up with a reel between an 5000 to 10000 size and a PE4 braid (about 60lb) the Stick Special will be sweet for a budget rod that feels like a rod that costs 4 times the price.
