“The One” is Power Tackle’s newest flagship rod and the most advanced rod we produced. This rod is the result of our working with Fuji on creating a new blank to suit our needs. We were looking for a true moderate, parabolic bend with the same power as our #1 selling rod for 15 years, the PG104.
With new advancements in materials and manufacturing process we have found a lighter, stronger, more sensitive blank. The advanced new materials that make up this blank enabled it to deadlift an average of 17.5lbs off the ground, versus the 7.5-8lbs our legacy products are capable of. Plus, “The One” sports a new carbon fiber grip and butt to keep the rod light, ergonomic, and looking great.
From Power Tackle Pro Ray Hanselman:
When we first started R&D testing with different blanks, Tim wanted to bring the action of a glass cranking rod (where the whole rod bows when fighting a fish) to a rod with enough back bone to be able to fish a TX rig on. In this way, Power Tackle definitely pioneered the parabolic bend multi-function blank.
We have used that 104 blank for almost every purpose and application, from TX rigs, to Carolina rig, Swimbaits, spinnerbaits even Flippin and weightless plastics.
The rods’ unmatched ability to fight and land more fish has been noticed throughout the fishing industry and companies have tried to copy it with no luck. They even used Power Tackle-coined descriptions like Parabolic Bend and Moderate Power.
Now, with the addition of a new line of application-specific rods (the Power Point Series) we were just missing one blank. It has taken several years to perfect the evolution of the PG104.
This evolved twin of the 104 is lighter, which means less stress on the body, and the lighter blank means increased sensitivity as well.The appearance of the rod is cutting edge with a carbon textured feel plus matching carbon textured grips.
The only name that fits this rod is THE ONE-04. In baseball, you have a Utility player– he is the ONE player who can go in at any position because of his versatility. This is how we feel about the New Power Point: THE ONE-04.
