High-elastic rods are also highly breakable
High elasticity makes a rod extremely breakable. Lately there are many high-elastic rods designed for lure control, but their poor durability means they do not provide the peace of mind you need when fighting to land a fish. The true purpose of a rod is to provide perfect lure control and bend in a supple manner to follow the movements of the fish you are fighting. In addition, the butt must be extremely bendy so it can lift up the fish.
We began developing a blank to resolve this inescapable issue. The IKARI Blank—offering high levels of both elasticity and durability—is the answer we discovered after many long years by exploring various production techniques and material combinations.
