Unchanged essence. Unwavering performance. 1999. The Sidewinder appeared in an era when light rigs were the mainstream when lighter and more sensitive rods were pursued. While ultra-high elasticity rods are appearing one after another, as if going against the times, the torqueful long rod with super-class power posed the question, "What on earth are you fishing with this rod?" was taken. But our answer was clear. "It's a rod for catching big bass," he said. In the heyday of tournaments, big bass hunting was only a style of some core anglers, but the Sidewinder series, which started with only three models, "Slap Shot", "Super Border", and "Outcross", is such a core angler. It was a rod that was born only for big bass hunters. That specialized spec was the only one that could handle strong styles such as slow rolling heavy spinnerbait, rubber jig swimming, and big bait, which are now standard. For over a dozen years since then, although there have been minor cosmetic changes, the basic performance has not changed at all, and that is why the rod has been loved. In 2011, without modifying the long-loved blank, the New Sidewinder was brushed up with sharpness and high rigidity that you can tell just by holding it in your hand. firmly inherited.

It contributes to ensuring strong reel mounting and sensitivity by hard touch. ■ Guide setting In order to maximize the performance of the blank, the guide setting that makes the line follow the bent curve more tightly contributes to sharpness and weight reduction that you can not think of the same blank. With the adoption of the "T-LNSG" guide, which is lighter than the previous "T-NSG" made by fuji, the number of guides, guide positions, and guide diameters have been determined more precisely. And it realizes a highly sensitive feeling. ■ Haika cork grip end The grip end, which uses high-strength Haika cork, reduces slippage and slippage, and also has a balancer effect due to its moderate weight. The more you use it, the more it will give off a dull black luster. ■ Shaped EVA grip The EVA grip has a shape that is easy to grip and does not cause fatigue even when used for a long time. ■ Dedicated setting / foregrip The front grip of the Boa Constrictor HGC-77XS/GP and Constrictor HGC-64XS/GP is equipped with EVA support, and special settings reduce the burden on the fingertips during hard jerk and continuous twitch action frequently used in moving lures. applied.

A super long 9ft 6inch super long rod that has never been seen in the bass fishing world, developed for punching and flipping.

It makes it possible to drag out the confronting bus from above. When the cover on the water surface is used as the fulcrum, the angle of incidence increases, which greatly reduces the burden on the line, and the sensitivity transmitted to the hand is not blocked, and the power loss of hooking is suppressed, making it possible to handle more directly. In addition, the long length of 9ft 6inch extends the distance to the point, it does not give unnecessary pressure, and it enables you to capture the point that you could not attack until now.
