Supervised by Kozo Okubo, overseas expedition model
A rod for EXPEDITION (expedition) supervised by Kozo Okubo, known as Big Fish Hunter. Versatile model with a wide range of applications, designed to target the largest class of fish species, regardless of whether it is salt or fresh water.
Unlike rods that are simply stiff, this is a design that matches the fishing style of Okubo in recent years, with an exquisite balance between softness and stiffness and bringing fish into the landing in a short time.

Model: KOZ EXPEDITION KOZ.EX-C68M/2
Versatal length, Versatal power. I don't know what kind of target it takes, and I don't know what lure is effective. One that should be brought in under such circumstances. Of course, the high torque characteristics that can handle unexpected large fish are unique to KOZ Expedition.

Model: KOZ EXPEDITION KOZ.EX-C67TM
I want to catch fish on the surface at the top, and that feeling is true for any target in any field. This rod was developed in order to comfortably operate the plug "Vaprac" produced by Kozo Okubo. Finished with a moderate taper that uses low elasticity carbon as the main material for the blank, it is good at manipulating large pencil baits without playing.
[Target fish] Peacock bass, Barramundi, Red snakehead etc.
Model: KOZ EXPEDITION KOZ.EX-C65LH
C65LH transferred from the Magnum Husky KOZ series to the Expedition series. The true value of the Okubo school, which controls power games using bait tackles. The field of activity is also wide in Japan, and it is also suitable for ryo games with light covers and bus games using Big Bait.

A special model for challenging big targets with big baits. High operability is secured without losing the weight of Big Bait or Magnum Spoon. A model indispensable for Ranker Seabass Hunt in Buster Jerk, which Kozo Okubo is good at. It is also recommended for aiming at rock fish using a 1 to 2 oz heavy sinker.
[Overseas target fish]
Snakehead, Pike, Salmon, Aliment, Grouper etc.
Model: KOZ EXPEDITION KOZ.EX-C67TH/2
Based on the KOZ.EX-C67TM, this model was converted to 2pcs for better storage. More torque from the belly to the butt section. It can be used for a wide range of top water plug sizes, starting with catfish top water game. All guides are made of titanium frame SiC-S.
We started developing this rod as a topwater rod for catching Biwako catfish. 7ft 9in rod was requested, but it ended up as 6ft 7in rod for some reason. It was an accidental rod, but when I actually used it, I found that it was very good for targeting bass in weed areas, and its ride was outstanding when fishing for catfish. It also proved to be an ideal rod for the KOZ LURE Vaplax. It fulfills the requirement of being strong while bending firmly toward the tip" (Kozo Okubo)
[Target fish] Peacock bass, Barramundi, Red snakehead, Catfish, sea bass, bass, etc.
Model: KOZ EXPEDITION KOZ.EX-C68MH/2
Versatile length, versatile power. You don't know what kind of target fish you will catch, and you don't know what kind of lure will be effective. This is the one lure you should bring in under such circumstances where you can't narrow down your target. Based on C68M/2, we reviewed the blank from the beginning in order to handle a wider range of situations.
Based on the C510ML, this rod was developed in response to requests for a longer length. We aimed to create a rod that can be used with a wide range of lures, from lightweight to heavyweight lures, while still being able to catch large fish. I (Okubo) use it for cranking bass, sea bass (vibration and jerking), barramundi, stripers, redfish up to medium size, and itou.
[Target fish] Jungle perch, Barramundi, Snakehead, Perch, Pike, Peacock bass, Seabass, bass, etc.
Model: KOZ EXPEDITION KOZ.EX-C77LH/2
Special model for tackling large targets with big baits. High maneuverability without losing the weight of big baits and magnum spoons. Based on the C77SLH, the blank was redesigned from scratch to accommodate a wider range of fishing situations.
The C77SLH was originally developed for targeting rockfish from the rocky shore or from a boat. The grip length was set to be easy to handle, but still long enough to be cast from the shore. Since Bekko zoi are often fished in seaweed, we sought for a rod hard enough to hook the lure firmly even when it is bitten in the seaweed. The rod is designed to catch and fight the pull of fish trying to dive into reefs. This rod is not only stiff, but also can be bent to cast and fight, making it easy to use for big baits for sea bass and redfish. I have also caught pirarucu and tarpon with this rod.
[Target fish] Snakehead, Pike, Salmon, Aliment, Grouper, Seabass, Bass (big baits, magnum spoons), Rockfish, etc.
