    Apia "Night Hawk"

    Posted by Andy McLachlan on 11th Oct 2018

    I am not an experienced lure fisher for bass, but have fished extensively for freshwater fish for half a century. I decided to buy this expensive rod prior to a guided trip with Marc Cowling as its specifications appeared ideal. I was not disappointed!
    Although some might say that the action is "too fast" and that the rod is overly powerful, I would have to say that it suited me perfectly for a casting style that has been developed by launching swim-feeders very long distances on rivers.
    It is expensive, but is more than capable of generating the power to cast long range with accuracy. I even managed to land a few fish with it!
    I have other rods that have been made in Japan. This one though just seems to suit my personal casting style and feels very well balanced for me.
    Highly recommended!

    After what has seemed like an eternal hunt for perfection I took a gamble and purchased the night hawk from lure fishing for bass.
    All I can say is this is as close to perfection as it gets. From its feel in hand of substantial quality to its perfect action this rod has ticked every box.
    I like the reel seat design and all the fittings are great quality.
    First cast and I was aghast at the distance it achieved. It just loads perfectly and allows communication with the lure right through the cast.
    I was fortunate to hit into a bass on my first outing on a surface lure. It hit about three times and on the third engulfed the rear trebles on my patchinko 100.
    The rod tamed the fish better than expected and in no time it was at my net.
    I can honestly not think of one bad aspect to this rod and after using century’s, hto’s, branzinos and tenryu’s all I can say is if you require the best for your shore lure fishing then it doesn’t get any better than this. Ecstatic and then some.
