In order to handle lightweight lures, this lightweight versatile model has been thoroughly brushed up for all kinds of fishing scenes such as okay fishing and boating.
The guide setting and taper design that maximizes accuracy and operability have been thoroughly investigated, and it is possible to draw a supple arc and cast a lightweight lure as you wish. Moreover, in order to secure the torque to float the big bass when fighting, the length was 6ft10in, which is long in the class.
It is a lineup of bait models with sidewinders specialized for lightweight lures so that the big bass can be stopped even with small and thin hooks of lightweight lures. In addition to the top guide, a torzite ring that is lightweight and easy to swing is used.
Sidewinders appeared in the days when light rigs were the mainstream, where lighter and more sensitive rods were being pursued.
With ultra-high elasticity rods appearing one after another, as if going backwards in time, a torque-rich long rod with de-class power at that time cast the question, “What are you going to catch with this rod?” Was done. But our answer was clear.
“It’s a rod for catching big bass” …
In the heyday of the tournament, big bass hunting was only a style of some core anglers, but the sidewinder series that started with only three models of “slap shot”, “super border” and “outcross” is such a core. It was a rod that was created just for the Big Bus Hunter.
This specialized spec was because it was the only one that can handle the strong styles such as slow rolling of heavy spinner baits, rubber jig swimming, and big baits that are now standard.
For more than ten years since then, although there have been slight minor changes in cosmetics, the basic performance has not changed at all, so the rod has been loved.
In 2011, the new sidewinder, which was brushed up with sharpness and high rigidity that you can easily grasp without modifying the long-loved blank, also has a pedigree as the second generation sidewinder carrying the subname of Great Performer. Is firmly inherited.
