High sensitivity and shake width. The future of finesse changed by SMT
Line break at Finesse. Where is that principle?

“The angler hadn’t noticed that the rig was being carried deep into his mouth.”

Naoto Kawaguchi, a skill to participate in the top 50 series in Japan. He cites “bus lips” as the cause. If an extremely thin line is sandwiched between the top and bottom of a rugged lip, the result is easy to imagine. The Finesse rod developed by Daiwa with Kawaguchi is “Fast Hawk 6011UL / LXS-SMT”. “SMT” at the end of the count means the super-elastic titanium alloy “Super Metal Top” deployed on the tip. This material realizes “ultra-high sensitivity at a different dimension” that was impossible in the past due to the extremely strong transmission characteristics unique to metal materials.

“The moment when the fish is added is clearly transmitted at hand. I notice again that the traditional Atari was transmitted after the fish flipped.”

The new structure that hooks through the upper jaw of all fish and securely secures it will be passed on to the next model “Firehawk 631UL / LFS-SMT”. After repeated tests, it was designed to extend 2 inches and from XF to F taper. Kawaguchi who knows the site of the toughest peak game, knows that the difference in shake width is directly linked to the difference that determines the victory. The high-density SVF carbon blank, which is connected from the tensioned SMT tip to the tubular section with X45 without power loss, allows operation from micro pitch to large pitch shake. At the same time, he acquired long-throw performance and accuracy. Watch out for the second SMT created by Kawaguchi’s extraordinary commitment.

It also works well with various light rigs such as down shots and jig heads using the skinny series, and the small rubber jig SS. Also recommended in combination with an igist.
Kawaguchi knows that the difference in shake width is the difference in bytes.We have used various small pitches and small swings, and have achieved many good results. The strength of this model is that it enables both depending on the operation.
■ Sensitivity area design system “ESS = Expert Sense Simulation” When the
rod is bent, energy (restoring force) is generated that tends to occur in the opposite direction.This is the “strain energy” that a deformed (strained) blank tends to recover, and is a very important factor that affects the performance of the crucible. “ESS” is Daiwa’s unique system that analyzes and designs this invisible “strain energy”. As well as clearly grasping “Who is better” and “Which is missing” numerically, it has become possible to analyze and digitize the area called expert’s sensibility and reflect it in the rod.
■ SMT (Super Metal Top)
Super elastic titanium alloy “SMT” is supple and sensitive. He / she conveys atari well for vision (eye sensitivity) and tactile sense (hand sensitivity). The super-titanium alloy, which is flexible and has excellent properties to transmit vibration for a long time, is hybridized with carbon and glass materials to achieve optimal tone and weight reduction for each application.
■ Super high density SVF carbon
High-density HVF carbon is produced by reducing the amount of resin compared to normal graphite and increasing carbon fiber. Blanks revolutionized lightness and power, but ultra-high-density SVF carbon was developed with the aim of further improvement. By injecting carbon fiber at a higher density than HVF, we created tension, lightness, sensitivity and power that surpassed HVF. Therefore, it has absolute strength in fishing such as jigs and Texas. However, it also features moderate softness and is also surprised by the all-round performance of scrolls. The tension, lightness, and sensitivity are the top priorities, but a little mild hidden taste is also required. The best material for such a rod.

The relationship between the orientation angle of X45 carbon fiber and the elastic modulus is very special, and even if the angle of the carbon fiber deviates even at 1 °, the elastic modulus decreases greatly. When considering the performance of the kite, the ideal structure is 0 ° / 45 ° / 90 °. The elasticity of “twist” and “slip” is reduced compared to “”. Also, in order to exert the same power as the “X45” at an intermediate angle, considerable weight increase is required. The X45, which employs the three angles with the highest elastic modulus, is the optimal structure for preventing twisting that has been scientifically backed up, resulting in high operability and improved power.

A super-shaking titanium alloy tip “SMT (Super Metal Top)” equipped with a viking shake compatible fast hawk. Fire Hawk has a taper that vents neatly without making an extreme taper, compared to Fasthawk, which enables vivid shake by docking a tubular with a strong berry that does not shake during the shake on the delicate SMT tip. If you shake with a relatively large pitch width, you can shake the tip with the berry as a fulcrum and shake without lifting the rig. Furthermore, by making the tip of the “SMT” tip different from the Fasthawk tip, it transmits vibration to the underwater rig without shaking the tip of the tip during shaking, a very unique characteristic of super elastic metal material Realized ultra-high sensitivity that can clearly grasp bottom information and bytes that could only be vaguely captured by strong vibration characteristics. In addition, even with headwinds, the SMT head with its own weight at the tip makes the tubular blank larger when casting the swing, and the X45 mounted ultra-high density carbon SVF blank without power loss due to twisting makes it a spot aimed sharply at the light rig Enable to send in. Furthermore, a unique rod that converges sharply emitted lines and enables long throwing by adopting a large diameter former guide.
