The Dragon Express was made for big shads on the North Wales coast in the Autumn... Probably! This rod revolutionised bass fishing in the UK , paving the way for modern Japanese lure rods designed for punching decent sized lures out in big seas and strong winds. When you need a rod that will tame the biggest of Bass over the roughest ground, stopping them in their tracks on demand, this is the rod to turn to.

This fast actioned, seriously powerful rod is perfect for big soft plastics on heavy articulated jig heads, and if you are using big hard surface lures it is an absolute dream. This new "Evo" version is still the original classic Red Dragon Express blank, but has been brought up to date with new Fuji K-Series Anti-Tangle Guides and beautifully shaped one piece foam butt grip.


Length: 2.9m (9ft 6in)
Casting Weight: 20-60g
Weight: 197g


Henry Gilbey:

"A lure fishing powerhouse of a rod. If you are after a rod that can properly deal with the bigger lures then you need to check this Red Dragon Express out, but as with all Tenryu rods it has a sublime tip that I reckon does very well on the lighter stuff as well. This was the rod that really woke me up to “proper” lure rods, in that this is an out and out lure rod, and not just some spinning rod that has been pressed into service. The red Tenryu rods are out and out class bits of kit."
