The basic form of bait finesse sought by Toshifumi Kikumoto.


Wollesia that has realized a comfortable feeling of use for the bait finesse rod that Toshifumi Kikumoto has sought. In addition to the accuracy of pitching and side handcasting with C-4 jig and bow worm neck rig, and stress-free, it provides a long-throw performance.

In the Hercules series, a low-elasticity carbon material is used to provide a comfortable cast feel that can bend smoothly and carry a light lure. You should be able to feel the effect of adopting the double foot guide that uses the weight when casting.

In addition, the balance design boasts high sensitivity despite the high elasticity of Pakipaki, and succeeded in drastically reducing misbytes in combination with the tip that does not play small bites and eats them. Its ease of casting and biting performance are also powerful in light plugging.

Bait Finesse Versatile. This is one of Kikumoto’s slimmings that show great power in both “shooting” and “winding” light rigs and plugs.


By adopting a carbon material with a low elastic modulus, even a light lure can be firmly placed on the bag, realizing a comfortable cast feel. The bat part is reinforced with a Hercules cloth manufacturing method that adds carbon fiber in 2 vertical directions, 2 diagonal directions, and 4 additional directions. Blanks with uniform strength in all directions are completed by adding torsional rigidity that is obliquely crossed to vertical bending rigidity and horizontal compression rigidity.

Thread design
In Hercules Casting series, thread color is set for each rod. Gold and silver threads are used for the wallesia.

Guide system
A double foot guide with a normal diameter is used instead of a small diameter. A choice of Fuji titanium frame SiC ring guide on the butt side, Fuji stainless frame SiC ring guide on the tip side, and the rod is bent using the weight of the guide, making it easy to cast lightweight rigs and lightweight plugs .

Reel seat design
Adopts a Fuji ACS reel seat with a blank touch method with improved offset gripping support such as main trigger and second trigger.

Grip design
A separate type that can be cast from all directions and pursues operability and weight reduction. The grip end is fitted with a combination color ring with Heracles’ initial H as a motif and a Hercules original end plate showing quality.
