Tough. Real torque. A dedicated power game machine by Toshifumi Kikumoto.


Actaeon, a heavy tank that continues to keep countless decabus as a big bait dedicated machine by Toshifumi Kikumoto. Not to mention the big baits such as Timber Flush and Royal Flush, we put a heavy swim bait of 4 oz.

In addition, the blanks with extremely little twist by the 4-axis Hercules cloth manufacturing method makes it possible to freely control the big bait to the pin spot.

Actaeon’s powerful and torqueful performance is perfect for heavy jigs, heavy texas, heavy carolina and heavy drop shots to capture a super-big bass. It also shows a wide range of abilities such as frogs with super heavy covers and slow rolls of heavy spinner baits.

This lightness with this toughness. A rod born to catch a big bass. That is Hercules “Actaeon”.

  • Blanks
    Low resin pure carbon is used as the main material. By increasing the butt diameter and increasing the taper in the tip direction and making the carbon sheet thinner, it achieves overwhelming strength and light weight at the same time. In addition, the bat part is reinforced with a Hercules cloth manufacturing method that adds carbon fiber in 2 vertical and 2 horizontal directions, and 4 diagonal 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. The return speed is fast, and at the same time, it is easy to swing through, can be cast from all directions, increase accuracy, improve flight distance, hooking response, and improve operability and sensitivity by weight reduction. It was.
  • Thread design
    In Hercules Casting series, thread color is set for each rod. Actaeon uses metallic brown and silver threads.
  • Guide system
    Equipped with Fuji titanium frame SiC ring double foot guide with lightness and flexible performance that does not interfere with the performance of blanks, plus the strength to withstand hard use.
  • Reel seat design
    “The shape follows the function”. Original reel seat, EG Super Bus Seat Slim, developed by Evergreen, a tacticalist. A simple and functional form that balances various operations required for bass fishing. The slim body of the original shape enhances casting accuracy and balances all fingers in palming to reduce hand pain and fatigue. In addition, the unprecedented length and shape of the seat end can be gripped firmly with your little finger. Equipped with Hercules original reel seat emblem on a delicate black polish paint.
  • Grip design
    The widening design that supports the foregrip power game is a testament to the strongest monster hunting rod. The rear grip uses a simple and easy-to-handle EVA straight grip. Rigid EVA is used for the grip end where force is applied when casting, and combined with its original shape, it achieves outstanding grip. In addition, a combination color ring with Heracles ‘initial H as a motif and Hercules’ original end plate showing quality are installed. Grip removable.
