ZENAQ - Tobizo

ZENAQ - Tobizo


Cast farther than ever

It has been 20 years since ZENAQ started making boat casting rods, and 15 years has passed since we released FOKEETO casting series which has created the standard of world casting game.
And finally in 2017, “the world greatest boat casting rod” is born, named “Tobizo”.
We have invested literally “Everything of ZENAQ” into Tobizo, including all technology of 60 years of rod manufacturing and 20 years of off-shore casting experience.
Moreover, by compositing the latest carbon material TORAY T1100G which is said an innovational material in 20 years, Tobizo has obtained overwhelming rod potential.


What we have pursued was
“Overwhelming Longcast Performance”

The biggest feature of Tobizo is overwhelming longcast-ability. It will definitely bring you a great result than ever before.

<Advantages of Longcast>

You can cast from distant position where you don’t give fish cautiousness. Of course, it’s a big advantage when bait boils at far away.
You can search fish in wider area and trace a lure in longer distance than fellow anglers on the same boat. It definitely changes the result. For example, if each casting performs 10m farther than before, 100 castings make 1,000m (1km) of difference in total distance.
“Conserving angler’s stamina” Exhaustion after whole day of fishing is a quite big. Tobizo allows you to cast far with 80% of your power each time, so a number of casting in one day will increase, as a result probability of catching fish also goes up.


Antithetical subjects, Longcast and Lifting Power

A mere stiff rod doesn’t bring you an advantage in a fight against a huge target, because a stiff rod will not support you to ease tiredness of your body. Without absorbing a pressure from fish, it will directly convey the pressure to your body.

<<True meaning of LIFTING POWER>>

A true meaning of “Lifting Power” is not rod’s stiffness; it is “An Elasticity, which an angler can easily give power to the rod, and A Repulsive Power, which the rod itself lifts fish up by converting the given power from an angler”.
Based on this lifting power, the true casting rod can support the hardest fight against a huge fish that you have to devote all your strength.
However, Longcast and Lifting Power are antithetic, if only lifting power is focused, long castability would be neglected.

<<Super Muscular Carbon Blank>>

Tobizo finally had overcome this antithetic problem of Longcast≠Lifting power; it’s because of a rod making technology of ZENAQ meets the new innovational carbon material of TORAY, TORAYCA® T1100G. TORAY also had solved a big difficulty of carbon fiber, high strength≠high elasticity, at high standard. Moreover, by compositing Nanoalloy® resin, a super muscular carbon blank of Tobizo has been completed.


Advantages of Hexagonal front Grip

Design Patent No.1638907
ZENAQ original front grip “Hexagonal grip” is designed to fit human hands.
This Hexagonal grip, which can be held easily and tightly, gives anglers huge advantages in the field.

1st Advantage

“You can hold a rod with minimum grip strength”
We guess that experienced angler would easily understand how this is effective in the field.
A thing running out the most in a long fight or in a very tough fight is hand grip strength, and if it runs out, your power to lift up the rod will decrease drastically. Also when retrieving with big spinning reel, you have to hold grip really tight to do stable retrieving. However the Hexagonal grip allows you to grip very tightly with small power, so it will ease exhaustion of your muscle, then your performance will last longer with more strength.
Hexagonal grip is necessary to catch a huge target of record class.

2nd Advantage

“For more precise lure control”
When you use heavy lures and make hard lure action, Hexagonal grip helps you to make precise lure control due to stable holding with minimum power. To perform true action of each lure will increase a number of strikes. Since you can save your stamina in lure action, you can concentrate longer time, so eventually a result will be affected in a good way.
