Lagoon Fighter is a member of our Boat Casting Game rod series, besides targeting Giant Trevally, we have models specially designed for targeting Hiramasa (Kingfish). In Boat Casting Game's standard today, giant Hiramasa is said to be one of the most challenging Sport Game Fishing targets. It is a big hit throughout Japan and is one of the major three Sport Fishing Casting Game items in New Zealand.
Hiramasa rod series often use fish shape Swim Bait lures, sensitivity of the tip of rod blank is essential. When performing SwimBait actions, flexibility and narrowness of the middle section helps action dexterity and subtle creation of dash bubbles. Paying attention to the toughness and the explosive power of the middle section which serves double duties is important as well. During the fight, mid-section strength helps to provide return force to slow down fish escape and helps to control its direction. When operating the rod at 45 degrees, steady and smooth rebound helps to turn the paused fish quickly towards the angler and let him retrieve immediately, this can decrease the physical power consumption effectively. Such rod blanks can only be made by materials combining new types of carbon fibre structures. With the improved qualities of toughness and durability, the latest rod blank inner wall is thicker and almost 30% lighter than those in the past. These new rod blanks are state of the art products from famous Japan factories and 100% made in Japan.
Besides the rod blanks produced by famous Japan factories, we are honoured to cooperate with a renowned professional workshop in the industry to assemble our rods entirely in Japan. Owner of this workshop is a veteran custom rods maker with experience in managing production for big brand names, every tiny detail is well handled to produce our rods like art pieces. Specially formulated thick lacquer is evenly coated to improve toughness and durability which ensures our hand-made lure rod series satisfying high specifications and becoming powerful weapons for expert anglers to pursue their dreams.
In 2018, we started to test at the islands of Goto for Hiramasa of 10kg grade. The valuable data which we have collected from numerous Hiramasa fights has given us directions and horizons to improve the rod blanks performance. All of these led to the latter development of Lagoon Fighter models with higher performance that complement each other to give anglers greater satisfaction when facing different environments and opponents. "LF Seven Miles SP 82/8MH Plus" is one of the advanced models added to achieve better control while enjoying the fight with big size Hiramasa at Seven Miles of Genkai-nada area. We are looking forward to encountering even bigger Hiramasa, hopefully we can go to New Zealand in the near future and collect more data for our new models. Currently two members of Lagoon Fighter - HIRAMASA family with different power levels have been launched. They are the best among the Casting Game Hiramasa series and more developments for different fishing situations are coming!
