The new Azores XP reel on a new Kotare rod for light topwater fishing. A topline combo for kingfish fishing.


The Reel

The new Azores XP begin with proven power features including die-cast aluminum body, side plate and rotor, machine cut pinion gear and the Okuma Dual Force Drag system that utilizes a traditional top drag stack in concert with an oversized Carbonite drag washer beneath the spool to increase high-end drag output as well as spool stability under load.

The Azores XP reels feature dual anti-reverse systems. The one-way clutch bearing is joined by a ratcheting anti-reverse that is molded into the bottom of the rotor separating the Azores from its competition. The Mechanical Stabilization System keeps all key components aligned. The 6mm stainless steel spool shaft is surrounded by an 8mm brass spool shaft sleeve that dramatically increases stability of the spool and drag system alignment when fished under the Azores maximum family drag output of up to 44lbs of pressure

The Rod

Designed specifically for throwing stickbaits for NZ kingfish, the Kotare topwater range is exceptionally lightweight yet incredibly powerful. Featuring Winn Grips, 46T graphite blanks and top of the line ALPS and Fuji componentry the Kotare topwater rods are super responsive and cast like a cannon, while the tip sections fold away to allow the angler to work any lure with ease. The UMR technology means you don’t sacrifice anything in terms of durability and the parabolic action means you can exert huge amounts of pressure on the fish while making it easier on the angler.


Kotare 8’ PE3-5

A truly outstanding topwater rod for chasing kingfish around New Zealand’s coastline. The lightweight 46T carbon blank and ultra-comfortable Winn Grip foregrip makes casting and working small to medium sized stickbaits all day a breeze. At 8ft in length it is a great option for both boat and land-based stickbaiting. With its softer tip and powerful mid and butt sections it will swim stickbaits throughout its weight range with ease, and has some serious stopping power when required. Perfectly matched to a reel around the 8000 size range and will tackle most topwater kings around the country.
