Replacing the old FLIPPING SPECIAL, the all-new OROCHI XX AKLYS is a dedicated punching rod built to attack the thickest vegetation. Dialing the taper back to a medium-fast action, the top-third of the blank loads swiftly to launch punch rigs, then distributes force throughout the blank for powerful hooksets and sustained leverage to keep fish pinned to the underside of thick mats.
Carefully selected rear-grip length gives leverage, while the finely-tuned counterweight centers the rod’s overall balance-point at the reel to allow for smooth, pendulum-like rod work with minimal fatigue. Double-footed and double-wrapped SiC guides add durability, while increased ring diameter allows for smoother travel with heavy line and braid + heavy leader combinations.
Stronger, kabt™ reinforced blank and medium-fast taper are also better-suited to traditional flipping applications, calling upon more of the powerful blank to bury thick-gauge hooks and haul keepers from gnarly cover.
