<Design of blank>
  • Made from graphite composite (extremely low resin content) to drastically improve sensitivity
  • Discontinuing painting and sanding the blank surface to reduce the rod weight, which also prevents lines from sticking on the rod
<Action ideal for “Tip-run Eging”>
  • Special model made from three different elastic modulus of graphite material
    • Tip section: lower-modulus graphite material (ensuring sensitive and accurate casting)
    • Rod’s middle section: middle-modulus graphite material (ensuring lively action of the squid lure)
    • Butt section: higher-modulus graphite material (withstanding power of giant squid)
  • Off-centered joint ferrule and semi-parabolic action, making anglers unnoticeable about the rod weight even after placing reel on it
<Thread’s color for improving visibility>
  • Optic orange threads used at three points of tip guides to ensure easy seeing of squid’s touching squid lure
<Special guides ensuring stress-free fishing>
  • Ensuring stress-free fishing even with ultra-light class PE line by having the following guides of ultra small diameter:
    • LG tip-top guide

Tip Run Eging

“Tip Run Eging” is the squid fishing method, where anglers realize the fishing line loosening (with delicate rod tip) at a moment when squid touches the squid lure, and then they pull the line right after the squid’s hit. It has become possible to feel the subtlest touch of squids that angles have ever felt.
Anglers can search for wide area riding on a fishing boat, and seek for a squid only with squid lure itself until 50m deep sea area by using ultra light-class PE line. Therefore, this rod helps anglers to fish squids at fresh fishing spots.
  1. After the cast squid lure reaches to the sea bottom, jerk several times.
  2. Pause for a while after jerking, and wait for a fish catching lure with stretching fishing line.
  3. Move your lure to the target squid when feeling it hits the lure enough to move the rod tip back to its original position.
    If you do not feel anything touching the lure, start jerking with the lure reaching to the sea bottom and repeat that action.

Cautionary notes

  • Using ultra-light class PE line (Size: #0.3-#0.6) gives more sensitivity, helping to enjoy more direct tip run.
  • Best size of squid lure: #3.5
  • Best size of additional sinker: #1-#5(3.5~30g)
  • Better to cast slightly when a boat moves slowly due to slow current and moderate wind
  • Please enjoy fishing by underhand cast because this rod has an ultra delicate tip.
