The COOKAI was developed to bring long distance castability to another dimension and offer a heretofore unseen level of sensitivity to transmit subtle changes at the end of your line and manipulate lures with greater precision.
This degree of intuitive performance would not have been possible without 34 years of tireless innovation and founder Yuki Ito’s philosophy of “Form follows Emotion,” providing a roadmap for the COOKAI’s ability to make the angler feel as if their sensory pathways have been expanded.
Like many surf rods, COOKAI’s shore game series are constructed for long-distance casting; however, that is where the similarity ends. 5D blank construction delivers outsized power, surprising lightness, and a refined balance point that enables high-performance rod work to maximize lure action potential. This direct feel creates a sense of unity between equipment and angler, enabling intuitive performance at all levels of surfcasting.
COOKAI delivers a new level of equipment integration and performance to the world of surfcasting.
