Product Range

Jigstar Katana Nano Light

The Jigstar Katana Nano is our Premium specification Jigging rod featuring Fuji PSS reel seat, Fuji MNSG guides and custom components to create a modern, high performance classic.  The real benefit of this rod is in the Blank which features Nano technology. Nano technology dramatically improves the Blank strength and resilience, while realizing a weight saving of up to 30% Katana Nano rods are part painted metallic black.

The rod action is a medium fast, parabolic design which is designed to easily jig in the Japanese style or what we call “Mechanical Jigging”.

The Katana Nano rod is for experienced jiggers seeking the best.  They will notice the classical, sophisticated looks and the high performance “feel” of the Katana when jigging and fighting aggressive fish.  These rods are very competitively priced amongst comparable performance rods on the international market.
