Zenaq Tobizo TC 83-150 Type R

The Zenaq Tobizo Type R is the pinnacle rod from Zenaq for offshore casting, combining decades of design, research and construction experience. These cutting edge rods incorporate all of this knowledge to create rods which give the angler the best possible chance to land the fish of their dreams! These rods combine long cast ability, fish fighting power, precise lure manipulation and angler comfort all in the one package.

The Tobizo 83-150 Type R is the perfect all-rounder rod for chasing GT as well as tuna and many other large pelagic species. It covers a casting range of 90-170g which takes in many of the most popular lures for GT fishing. We find the rod is great for stickbaits across the full cast weight range and large cup face poppers up to around 140g. The tip has some initial flex to work the stickbaits, then it steadily ramps up through the mid-section to help pull poppers through the water. From the first guide through to the butt, the rod possesses excellent lifting power and is able to stretch PE8 to the limit. The 83-150 is ideal as an all day rod for GT fishing as it has the power land large fish, but is still light enough in the hand for long casting sessions.

The Zenaq Accura Type R rods are the flagship models of the range, featuring the Zenaq Hexagon reel seat. The reel seat uses a composite of high strength and long-fibre carbon from Toray in a special molding machine to produce reel seats that can hold a large reel firmly without wobbling. The Hexagon reel seat also has the same shape as Zenaq's hexagon grips and a firm rubber outer that makes it comfortable to use for long sessions and does not loosen during hard fishing. Type R rods feature single wrapped guides, utilising high quality thread. Less binding gives a sharper and more responsive action from the rod for better feel, cast performance and lure action. 

The rod has a blend of the best Fuji guides from the Titanium SiC RV guide for the stripper, followed by Stainless frame SiC guides in the middle for strength and Titanium Sic K guide as the tip assist (to minimise tip wraps) and lastly Titanium SiC tip guide. The rod has a minimum guide size of 16, to allow the passage of bulky leaders and knots.
