Hot's One Pitch Slider - A New Member of the Family !!

Unleash power into your jigging game!
Welcome the newest weapon in my arsenal.
The Hot's One Pitch Slider of Japan. This rod has a beautiful parabolic bend right through the handle. Also known as:


5 foot 6 inches of pure lifting power.
1UP to this rod for battling my first bluefin tuna out of Cape Cod last Thursday. This rod beat the 70" beast in less than 15 minutes!

  • Longer, Stronger, and Lighter then any rod in its class range. This rod is described by owner, Minami, of Hot's as the new power for big bluefin tuna in the NE of United States.

  • This rod is lighter then my fluke rod. Kilsong mentioned it was weighted at under 9 ounces!
  • Notice the spiral line wrap up from the neck section to the tip. Atteniton to detail much like my Smith wgj-56h.

Jig weight at 420g

Line rated: PE-6 to PE-10 (1UP)

This rod seriously feels like a 500g rod. I really enjoyed the length of the butt section making the actual exposed rod section shorter and putting the Stella and her handle knob at the right length for my arms.

A more adequate rod for big bluefin tuna then the predecessor hero Wei World 48xxh & 52xh (for kingfish). The new 2009 Magalog places these two rods on the same fold and indicating the heroics of each design. Certain attention is put onto this rod as to its extended length setting a higher tier for its expectations & performance.

Man in the Blue Suit!

So we charted one out on the islands.

Caught on the troll, and of course off a ballyhoo! The fight was done by a gentleman on his honey moon named Dan. His beautiful wife was there to accompany him.
Seems like everywhere in the world catches on the hoos...
