Vision - ONKI - 2017

ONKI

Our new full-scale rod series Onki (rod & line in Finnish) consists of 11 carefully created medium-fast rod models to cover most of the situations anglers face when fishing for freshwater species on rivers and various stillwater/reservoir locations.

Based on our long history with true classics like the 3Zone and the Nite range of rods, these four piece high quality rods have green olive blanks with graphite grey screen markings. The quality of high-modulus graphite is something you normally find only in more expensive rods and it enabled us to create a very light and sensitive rod. The handles have narrow rubber/cork reinforcements to make them more durable. With these rods your money is truly well spent.
