Patriot Design Tuna Master Dogtooth 57 jigging rod

Patriot Design is a small Japanese company, known around the world for their dedication to making expedition level tackle for hunting the worlds toughest gamefish. Their rods are particularly sought after by anglers chasing monster class GT, tuna and dogtooth, for both their rod power and durability in extreme fishing situations.

The Tuna Master Dogtooth 57 is a longer jig rod, suited to high pitch and aggressive sweeping actions that are popular for dogtooth and tuna anglers. This rod is perfect for the mid-size 150-250g jigs that are commonly used when jigging dogtooth over reef drop-offs. The line rating is for PE4-6 however we feel it will fish best at the heavy end of its range. The action is a medium fast taper, flexing smoothly in the first third, ramping up stiffer in the mid-to-butt section. From just below the stripper guide, the rod is nice and firm, giving great support to anglers who like to fight a fish aggressively allowing the angler to dictate the fight to the fish. Compared to the Tuna master Vertical series, the rod has a faster taper which suits more aggressive jig actions. Compared to the heavier Dogtooth Pro series, this rod is easier on the angler and more comfortable for fish fighting but is also a step down in overall power.

The Patriot Design Tuna Master rods are built with Fuji reel seats and Fuji stainless framed SiC MNSG (Ocean) guides. All models feature alloy gimbal fitting on the butt.
