Long Cast Popping Combo
here are some pictures of my 20k fa and the tuna sniper.

Next rod will be the Smith WGJ-S56H Wonder Glass Jigging Series

Purchase date - Mid May 09

1. New material WG21 (wonder - glass 21)

The blank material of the WGJ, evolved from UD glass (single directivity glass) which is called 20 century last super lightweight glass materials. Smith has used this material with special manufacturing method, increasing strength by 60% and lightening to an average 12% reduction in comparison with the rod which was made purely from UD glass material as a single unit.
Regrettable it is not possible presently to release the details.

2. The endurance which is proven with the field test, resistance strength characteristic

The actual test is done mainly with the heavy class rod, in New Zealand on king fish over 20kg. In addition catching a sail fish of 70kg, fighting time 7 minutes.


Sniper Sword Delight!

Sitting in my living room are two tuna sniper rods. TJ was in Indonesia so Rou sent me a new one. Included in the package was a Size L OTI white longsleve shirt!
I guess they really wanted me to send the rod back asap. haha

Anyhow, before monday I'll have time with two tuna snipers and one stella 20k fa.
TY Hampton from 360tuna asked me to meet up and bend some rods so I might just bring the sniper over to his place and show him what these things are about.
This rod may end up being named the Tuna Sword.

So currently I have two Tuna Swords in my arsenal.

Next up? ...Seven Seas fighting belt!

Forgot about last years pain in my lower back membrane! What a way to fight a tuna for and hour and have it get away!
