The Tenryu Furrary racing is a rod designed for casting "normal" to large lures with the expectation of being hit by large fish. The rod has been designed so the angler can use fairly standard tropical lures with ease, but also allows the confidence that if a big fish does smash your lure you still have the bottom end power to land it.
The weight of the rod is lighter than many other rods of its class, and the progressive power absorbs the powerful dives and runs from tropical fish. This rod is perfect for use with poppers and stick baits, I actually use this rod myself when abroad, matching it up with a Saragossa 8000 and 47lb YGK Castman line. It is probably my favourite rod when traveling, I love using the big 150 size Tackle House Feed Poppers and Halco rooster Poppers on it, along with the UF El Perito stick baits.
