In the pursuit to develop the Early for Rock, we asked ourselves “What is the rock-fish game?”. The blanks not only have strength and lightness but also have a highly efficient ability to restore its original form. In other words, the bent blank will flex back to its straight form, peeling the fish off the bottom and other structures efficiently.
The stiff yet delicate tips are highly sensitive to any changes in sea conditions while being versatile, enabling anglers to utilize various types of rigs and style of fishing.
The rock fish game is changing and evolving every day and the various different species of rock fish inhabiting different parts of Japan and the seas around the world all have unique characteristics. You cannot simply expect to catch these rock fish flat from the bottom. There are various tackle settings, different methods and rigs anglers endlessly try. This is probably the reason why so many anglers are captivated by these species.
Early for Rock 104H long length high powered model was designed for casting distance and sensitivity. The “soft” aspect of the blank can be attributed to the line settings (PE#1), while the “hard” can be felt in its ability to take the load of heavy weight rigs and max drag settings. Anglers will be able to reach those grounds where others have yet to reach. You will be able to utilize various rigs ranging from soft plastics, swim baits, metal jigs and even minnows above 14cm to go head to head with monstrous rock fish and other blue-runners that you may randomly encounter.
