B3-70  < To search wider range precisely >

Length: 7'0" / Lure: 1/4-1oz / Line: MAX 18lbs
This is a special rod for using vibration, deep crank, heavy fast-moving lure. We put our big effort on weight saving and shortening grip length as much as possible. Because of that, even though it’s a 7feet rod, casting ability is increased more than usual 7 feet rod, and its reduced rod weight raises handling and usability as if its shorter than 7 feet. Its casting ability will be a big advantage in the open area and from the shore to capture the breaks. Best match with 3/8-1/2oz class metal vibration, Texas-rig, Carolina-rig, chatterbait, swimbait, spinnerbait, etc.

B4-69  < Technical controllability of Heavy jig >

Length: 6'9" / Lure: 3/8- 1 1/2oz / Line: MAX 25lbs
Its tip section is not too soft, the reason is to make very precise lure control with 1/2oz jigs in between standing trees or rocky area. If the tip is too soft, the rod cannot make a very delicate action in units of millimeter. B4-69 captures heavy cover area with rubber jig and Texas rig with surprisingly precise cast control. And, it’s also very good to use heavy Carolina rig. These heavy lures can be controlled as if you are using light rigs.

S63 Fort  < Maximum softness of tubular tip >

Length: 6'3" / Lure: 1/64-1/8oz / Line: MAX 5lbs

Since we use a special material and make blanks extra thin, rod would be affected by a condition such as temperature, humidity, etc.. Without breaking its real potential, we manufactures S63 Fort as a quantity limited production. Thank you for understanding.
