Innovation and technology are key to all ASHURA rods and the cornerstone on which our reputation for excellence is built. The new NIGHT SHADOWS rod range is a great case in point. Developed for freshwater angling, these rods exude class. We have selected the finest component including high modulus Japanese TORAY carbon blanks and FUJI Alconite rings and reel seats. These slim profile rods are discretely finished and we have gone back to combining top quality Portuguese cork with high density EVA on the handles. To meet the needs of the most demanding anglers the ILLEX design team have created three families within the range each dedicated to a target species: perch and zander, black bass and pike. NIGHT SHADOW rods show what happens when Japanese technology is applied and developed to specifically meet the needs of European anglers.
