Tsurinoya’s lineup of the top-rated Dragon series of finesse rods has grown with the addition of the all-new Dragon II rods. Designed for bait finesse fishing in creeks, streams, rivers, lakes, and ponds, the Dragon II Rod Series offers a refined experience for the avid multispecies angler.

Built using TSU’s Spiral X Core design, the new blanks of the Dragon II are lighter and more sensitive than the original Dragon rod series. Featuring a true fast action, the Dragon II has enough power through the mid-section and into the butt end to fight aggressive fish in the flowing currents of mountain streams and rivers. The crisp action allows for precise lure control and movements and the ability to place your lure with pinpoint accuracy using various casting techniques.

The Dragon II series also introduces TSU’s all-new custom reel seat, designed to balance comfort and sensitivity. The Dragon II rod series uses Tsurinoya’s stainless steel guides with SiC guide inserts, providing durability, smooth casting performance, and heat dissipation. Finished with a high-quality cork handle that allows for excellent grip even when wet and stylish looks. The light power 6’6″ model features a split grip design, while the ultra-light models have a shortened full grip that provides excellent one-handed operability.

    I NEVER write reviews on ANYTHING! That being said, I just purchased the Tsurinoya 6ft 6 inch casting rod. I can’t believe how well made this rod is. The action is exactly as described, it’s beautiful, and my first fish was a 3.14 oz largemouth bass. WOW, what a fight, astonishing! The power in the lower 1/3rd of the rod iS amazing. Paired it with a Kast King zephyr bait caster, what a combo. Capt Jim White

    If you are looking for a nice looking and light sensitive rod. This is the rod for you. The quality of this rod for it only being priced at around $70-$80 dollars is incredible. Highly recommended!

    Bought the 7′ for Bass, awesome rod, great quality, plenty of backbone to set the hook on plastics, sensitive to feel everything. I’d definitely buy another from BFE.

    After fishing 6 ft UL with braid and fluoro I find the rod to be plenty sensitive for the price. It has a good action and decent power. Best feature of the rod is that it is aesthetically pleasing. Mine has no blemishes in the thread-work and finish. Usually Ali Express rods have threads with gaps and bubbles in the finish.
    Only con – should have had one more running guide to keep the line off the blank when under load. But this will not massively impact rod performance.

    For the price these rods are really hard to beat

    Overall, I like the rod. It casts well, is very light, well-balanced, and sensitive. One issue/question I had… when putting the 2 pieces of the rod together, I have about a 1/2 – 5/8 inch gap that remains at the ferrule. I contacted BFS Empire and was advised that this is part of the design, which seems odd. However, I am unable to find anything online to confirm or deny that this is the case. It doesn’t affect the performance, and the sections fit securely, so….

    I bought this Tsurinoya Dragon as a second bfs set up and I must say it’s beautiful like a piece of fine art. I got the chance to do some fishing today with it and it performed like any one of my higher end rods for a fraction of the price. Really love the Tsurinoya products already.

    I bought the Dragon II 5’3″UL mainly because I wanted a two piece BFS rod for trout and bass. The fit and finish is quite good and all the guides lined up unlike some other sticks. The tip is a little stiffer than expected but the tapper is very smooth even through the ferrel to the grip. Got it paired with a Diawa Salamandura AIR TW spooled with Verivas HG PE x4 (.6 Goh) to PLine CXX 4lb leader. I primarily throw 1.75g to 3.5g jigs (total weight) and the stick can do it, if I also do my part. For the price I believe it’s a great purchase and I highly recommend!
