Okuma Barbarian Rod for Light Surf & Rock Fishing

The Okuma Barbarian fishing rod is designed specifically for bait fishers who relish the feeling of a bite. This rod is perfect for use in estuaries and open beaches and promises to unlock your potential with light tackle.

These specialty rods combine enhanced sensitivity with smooth casting performance, allowing you to achieve a hookset consistently. With the Okuma Barbarian, you'll have everything you need to turn bites into successful hookups.

Master the Bite

Thanks to Okuma’s patented UFR nibble tip technology, Barbarian fishing rod blanks transfer the slightest ticks and touches straight to your fingertips, lighting up to clearly telegraph subtle bites.

White-coloured rod tips enhance visibility for heightened awareness in all conditions, especially low light. Respond instantly when finicky bream barely breathe on your bait or whiting taste test your prawns with feather-light sucks.

Smooth Casting, Solid Power

The smooth medium-light action of the Barbarian rod loads up beautifully to launch baits into the strike zone effortlessly. When it’s time to land a fish Barbarian butts generate impressive lifting strength for such a light tackle rod.

UFR Tech for Superior Strength

Okuma’s uni-directional fibre reinforcement technology infuses the tip area with next-level toughness and durability compared to traditional glass tips. UFR rods are more durable and reliable for fishing challenging conditions. They're less prone to snapping under pressure, making them ideal for beach and rock applications where extra strength provides peace of mind if you hook a salmon or tailor.

Okuma Barbarian Fishing Rod FAQs

What types of bait fishing is the Barbarian rod designed for?

The Barbarian excels for light surf fishing applications where feeling subtle bites is important. Ideal for tossing lightly weighted worms, prawns, pipis or beach worms to sight-feeding fish like whiting and bream. It also handles fresh baits like prawns and squid strips for flathead species.

What Size Reel should I pair to an Okuma Barbarian rod?

As the Barbarian rods are built for lightweight bait fishing applications, we recommend spinning reels in the 5000 to 6000 size range. Matching this mid-size class of reel balances nicely with 10ft, 10’6” and 11’6” models.

What breaking strain should I match the Barbarian with?

With recommended line ratings from 2-6kg, spool your reel with appropriate braid or mono from 4-12lb matched with leader material adjusted for target species. A fluorocarbon leader helps fool wary flathead and bream, while a heavier mono shock leader copes with species that target bait near abrasive structures.

What fish species can I catch with the Okuma Barbarian rod?

The medium-light power of the Barbarian makes it a versatile option for popular inshore species like bream, whiting, flathead, tailor and salmon when bait fishing.

Can I lure fish with the Okuma Barbarian Fishing Rod?

While it is possible to flick certain lures like soft plastic worms, the Okuma Barbarian fishing rod is best suited to fishing with live or fresh baits.
