ABOUT THE ROD: Kilwell Hydro 794 3-19g 4pc Spin Rod wth Tube

Kilwell designed the Hydro Spin rod for fishing the South Island hydro canals, but will suit any of the NZ rivers and lakes.

It is also a great rod for casting lures to squid around the harbour edges.

Fitted with genuine cork grips, the blank is very light in the tip for casting light rigs, so perfect for rolling eggs or casting small soft baits to wary fish, but still has plenty of power in the butt to fight a monster.

The high frame single foot light weight guides reduce the overall weight of the rod so you can spin all day with ease, and feel the slightest bite.

The blank joins together using a spigot joint, to reduce the "flat spot" effect created by a fit-over joint, so it leaves the rod blank with a near perfect action.

(Please note; Spigot joints are usually only found on expensive rods and are designed so that the blank sections DO NOT touch when assembled. There should be a gap of around 10mm to allow the joint to wear, over a lifetime of use)

Supplied with rod tube.

About the Reel

If you want the best spin fishing reel but are on a tight budget, the Tica Zatara LBXT3000 might turn out to be just what you're looking for.

Even with its low price tag, it is smooth, powerful, and durable just like the best spin reel should be.

Given its price range, you will be pleasantly surprised at how solid it feels and how good it performs. The anodized aluminium spool and balanced rotor are sealed and bearings shielded to prevent water, dust, and sand from corroding the bearings and gear system.

A lightweight design and comfortable handle give it an amazing feel in the hand.

Fitted with an anti-twist line rotor and roller, the reel has a capacity of 200yds/6lb monofilament line.

When it comes to fighting fish, it can handle any species encountered easily thanks to its enhanced shaft strength, strong and smooth drag system, 7 high-quality rust resistant ball bearings, and a 5.2:1 gear ratio.

All Tica reels have a 10 year warranty.
