Recently, I met up with Boghy (Alan Tani's website member) on a fishing reel. Then I showed him this rod. At first, he was not really impressed by the way he looked at this rod. Until he put this rod on a 35lb and 55lb plus testing, he was very impressed after his testing.
This rod will be available around coming July.
This rod is rated 450g to 650g (40 lbs to 100 lbs). The blank was tested up to 47kg (around 103lbs) strength.
This rod's specification is following:
1.) Length: 6'0"
2.) Spiral Wrapped with all Fuji HN series with Silicone Nitride ring (http://anglersresource.net/HeavyDuty...ingGuides.aspx
3.) Fuji DPSS reel seat.
4.) PAC Bay silver gimbal.
5.) 100% Japanese carbon fiber.
6.) Super light weight.
7.) In silver with blue line wrapping.
8.) Available for right or left hand (guides turn left for right hand and guides turn right for left hand).
9.) Made in Taiwan.
Here is the video link that Boghy was testing the blank.http://s1103.photobucket.com/albums/g478/boghy2010/Jigging%20rod%20tests/?action=viewĄt=MOV06141.mp4
