DARK MATTER KG-00 4-760MH
Masaki Ohnaka Produced model
A rod that realizes what Masaki Ohnaka, a guide of Lake Biwa, wants in the operation of moving lures at a high level.
For Ohnaka, who floats on the lake for more than 250 days a year, the first thing he was particular about was not getting tired. Reducing fatigue for people while casting all day long. Therefore, the balance is adjusted after a long test period. It is finished in an exquisite rod balance that does not make you feel the length of 7.6ft. Of course, it has the tough butt power peculiar to Killers 00 that can fight with monster bass, as well as the operability that overturns the image of heavy and dull that is often found in long rods. The ultimate Lake Biwa Versatile Rod has been completed.

DEAD SWORD KG-00 6-710EXH
The DEAD SWORD is designed specifically to be used with Jointed Claw178. Normally with rods designed to cast big baits focus only on the ability to cast these heavy lures without thought on the rods ability to maintain hooking ability and the ability to get the most out of the lures action. The softer tapers of these other rods kill the swimming action of JOINTED CLAW, however, DEAD SWORD has a unique inertia in its taper by using high elastic carbon materials. This original taper action maximizes the width of the S swimming action the JOINTED CLAW is best known for. Angler need a variety of rod actions such as twitching, jerking and staying on the bottom to entice a fish strike. DEAD SWORD is easily used to make these actions by subtle use of the sensitive tip of the rod.
Using JOINTED CLAW requires maximum power that comes from the entire length of the rod to ensure strong hooking. All of these factors needed for using JOINTED CLAW are equipped in the purpose built DEAD SWORD.

DEAD SWORD Shaku-ONE KGB-00 9-800SEXH
"Dead Sword Shaku-ONE" was designed as a rod exclusively for the giant bait "Jointed Claw 303 Shaku-ONE", which is one of the largest in the series. It is a "super monster" rod that combines super-dreadnought rod power and giant bait operability. When using the Jointed Claw 303 Shaku-ONE, the existing rod cannot be operated or even cast due to lack of power, and the potential of the Joined Claw 303 Shaku-ONE cannot be fully demonstrated. This dead sword scale-ONE emphasizes "power," "operability," and "good maneuverability." In order to make it easy to produce various actions such as "winding", "stopping", "flowing", and "jerk", which are important for operating the joined claw as well as the cast, we have carefully finished the details of the rod such as the grip length and reel seat. It was. It is the ultimate one for manipulating the "overwhelming presence" of the Joined Claw 303 shaku-ONE, assuming cast, action, and landing.

DEAD SWORD MAGNUM (KG-00 9-760EXH)
"DEAD SWORD MAGNUM" is a rod newly designed as a dedicated rod for joined claw magnum.
Like the original Jointed Claw, the Joined Claw Magnum can get more bytes by adding action to the chased bass in a timely manner. In such a situation, reliable hooking is indispensable, but it was difficult to take action with existing rods due to lack of power, and even to bring it to solid hooking.
Therefore, by combining carefully selected materials with "DEAD SWORD MAGNUM", we have given sufficient rod power.
In addition, the original first taper action using a highly elastic material with tension maximizes the S-shaped potential of the joined claw magnum.
No compromises are allowed in other settings, and attention is paid to details such as the length of the grip and the reel seat, and it is designed to be easy to handle when operating the joined claw magnum

Ground Trick (KG-00 5.5-670EXH)
Yoshida Shoot GEKIZO-like next-generation rod that supports everything from big bait, including rod
jointed claws, which he produced for the first time, to shooting fishing such as rubber jigs.
Ground tricks, which are good at close-range combat, are effective even in small places, and can accurately shoot pin spots such as behind cover. A 6.7ft length suitable for repeating casts with good rhythm and turning back and manipulating lures well. The playfulness of Yoshida is packed in the details, and each part is also GEKIZO specification to satisfy the sense of ownership. For Yoshida, who mainly uses Okappari, the rod embodies his desire to "reduce the number of rods when fishing as much as possible" and "to throw various lures with a single rod." Drop the lure accurately against the structure and snipe the point. That's the ground trick.
