A heavy action and another dimension for light weight lures.

Hercules LTS

Racing model Hercules LTS that factory-tuned Hercules Hercules, the right arm of Toshifumi Kikumoto . Extends Hercules 4-axis reinforcement. Guide setting change. Fore grip-less. By adopting a separate grip to eliminate all kinds of extravagant, the light weight lure has a higher level of adaptability.

For LTS models, 7g is the basic weight for worm fishing. Light Texas, Zerodan, 1 / 4-3 / 8oz CC round , 3 / 8-1 / 2oz football jig . The recommended line is 12-16 pounds. 14 pounds is the basic line. Its swing-out and incredible lightness brings dramatic advantages to the style of shooting one after another.

The tip section, which is more agile and more straightforward due to the semi-micro guide specification, has drastically reduced misbytes. In addition, the blanks performance is fully pulled out by the original guide setting, and the torque that the whole rod can endure is increased.

For example, a rod that chooses a user who needs delicate handling opposite to heavy-duty super-explosion because it is a delicate guide . However, the best weapon if it is used well. That is why it is a racing model of Hercules LTS.

4-axis reinforcement is extended from the original guide to the guide one level higher than the original Hercules blank. We further refined the strong bat power.

Guide system
Adopts a unique semi-micro guide setting (all Fuji titanium frame SiC ring guides) with the former guide in front. This setting reduces the loss of bat power and makes full use of the potential of blanks. At the same time, lighter weight and higher sensitivity are realized with the smaller guide diameter.

Grip & reel seat
EVA separate grip pursuing light weight & operability & durability. The foregrip has a simple structure with a 4-axis carbon sleeve for direct touch feeling and light weight. The reel seat adopts Fuji ACS with an offset design with improved gripping support such as main trigger and second trigger. 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.
