Mankind is ever eager, ever evolving, and ever inventing.
Our manifold bridges shrink the world.
But our eyes are transfixed on the ever-changing present,
shifting shapes shroud the truth.
Lying beyond the complexity of our lives
is a powerful, frail,
and precious world,
pure and unshackled by language or technology.
In fact, the truth of this world
beyond ours lurks right before our eyes.
Getting to the truth means having deep insight.
Deep insight means peeling away the layers
and reaching the core within.
Truth lurks within complexcity
Products that eliminate their complexity and pursue the essence
to the extreme are blessed with beauty and utility in their forms.
This form is truth, and that is what ZENAQ strives to achieve.
NAKED is a beautiful fishing rod arising from a sense of truth.
This concept rod embodies the integrated thought process of ZENAQ - " to give form to essence. "
The concept movie [ BE NAKED ] contains the message, " In an ever complex world, what is it that truly matters ? "
A distinctive rod blank carries the ripple patterns of a katana blade, making its originality stand out.
The ZENAQ SUPER BLANK has a beautiful taper.
By wrapping carbon fiber to it continuously, we limited the rod deformation to the extreme and created maximum durability on the rod.
To attach guides, [carbon fiber] was used instead of conventional [thread].
In this innovative design concept, all the guides have been wrapped in 100% pure carbon fiber, integrating the main blank and guides into a single shape (patent pending).
We have actualized a solid and sharp feel that is completely different from thread guide wrapping.
This form that combines beauty and utility is out of this world.
Our newly developed reel seat (patent pending) firmly holds even large reels.
We extensively eliminated any uneven section of each part and covered the surface with rubber to fit naturally into the angler’s hand for a firm grip.
The internal structure allows you to fixate the reel firmly.
In addition, rubber is used for the section where the reel foot is placed for cushioning effect, allowing you to concentrate on your toughest fishing.
Furthermore, like the hexagon grip, the body of the seat has a hexagon shape to contain “left to right movements of the reel.”
It transmits power without any loss and improves the success rate of catching fish.
The titanium blue color symbolizes NAKED.
Pure titanium spacer parts were carefully heated one by one to produce natural and beautiful heat gradations.
This symbolic color of NAKED makes its originality and presence stand out, which can never be reproduced in mass-produced products.
