Dual swords: power bait finesse and control hard bait.
67ML Plus that penetrates into two different areas.


A full size jig + 20lb line won’t bite. You can’t catch it with small bait finesse. This is the ultimate choice to let the tough bass hiding in the deepest part of the cover use their mouths without any discomfort, and to reliably draw them out. That’s Lightning Strike. For example, with a cover creeper 5.8g & antlion 3.3 inch + 14lb line, skillfully slide it to the deepest part of the cover and carefully invite it. Then, he hooks it firmly and does not break it or cut it, sometimes even by force. In addition to cover, it is suitable for situations where power is required with bait-like worm-type rigs such as light Texas rigs and light zero-dan rigs.
Another aspect of Lightning Strike is that it is a hard bait rod with a light feel. For example, for twitching and jerking jerkbaits and topwaters. Or for metal vibration lift and fall. While supporting long rod action with its lightness and good balance, the blank’s characteristic of sucking in and placing bites without repelling them is not only suitable for reaction bites of control baits, but also for fishing with compact spinner baits and shallow cranks. Respond at a higher level.
A lightning strike with a lightweight, high-balance design with a regular taper in which Trading Card T1100G runs through the entire body from the tip to the butt, and combines firm flexibility with sharp repulsion that returns quickly. The first thing that stands out among its characteristics is low trajectory pitching and skipping that digs into the deepest part of the cover with a compact jig. Castability allows you to carry even jerk baits that are easily affected by the wind on the rod and carry them sharply and far.
Furthermore, it has the sensitivity to tell whether it is a branch or a fish when the line is rubbing against the cover. The sense of discomfort during a suspended pose, or the subtle disturbance in the lure’s movement when the hook is covered with dry grass. In addition, it is easy to use from delicate shaking to sharp action at the right moment. A light feeling that allows you to comfortably perform crisp jerking and continuous dog walks.
The substance derived from the main characteristics in actual battles, such as hooking through the cover, sucking the reaction bite instead of repelling it, and hooking it through the cover…While it has the ability to respond to a variety of uses, it also has the power bait finesse. ” and “operational hard bait”, it is a dual-wielding tool that demonstrates outstanding performance.
How to use 67ML and 67M
The Orion series includes two models with similar specifications : “67ML Djeru” and “67M Cantata.” Although the length is 6 feet 7 inches, which is the most balanced length that combines long-distance casting, accuracy, operability, and power, the power setting of “67ML+” makes you wonder, “Why is it in such a narrow range?” be.
First of all, simply use different lure weights. Regarding lure weights used for ML to M, many anglers take it for granted that they adjust the sinker weight in 1 gram increments, especially when using worm rigs. No, I think there are some core anglers who make adjustments in comma units. Therefore, the interval between ML and M, which at first glance seems to be a narrow range, is much wider.For example, it is necessary to use ML, ML+, and M differently, just as you would use MH, H, and XH.
Next is the difference in usage. There is a way to use “67ML Djeru” and “67ML+ Lightning Strike” depending on the darkness of the cover. “67ML+” is set to bring out more bat power by increasing the blank power by nearly one rank compared to “67ML” and by placing the guide from the belly to butt section closer to the front than “67ML”. The grip is a short type that emphasizes maneuverability, just like the 67ML. It has the power to shoot into the deepest part of cover without hesitation while maintaining as much nimble operability as possible.
As for hard bait, use it properly with “67M Cantata”. “67M” focuses on single-hook winding that requires hooking power, and “67ML+” is a hard bait that can be operated using a rod. “67ML+” has a blank design with less belly tension than “67M,” and further emphasizes its mildness by widening the guide spacing between the belly and butt sections. It absorbs the power of jerking and makes it easier to release line slack, making it possible to perform sharp actions with a reduced travel distance without pulling too far forward. In addition, its mildness makes it suitable for winding compact spinnerbaits and shallow crankbaits that emphasize suction.
The 6-foot-7-inch lure weight range that is central to conquering the modern Japanese field with bait tackle – and therefore, it can be said that there are the most types of lures, rigs, and weights in that range on the market – is ML plus. Lightning Strike has a wide range of adaptability, and has two roles: a power bait finesse rod and an operating hard bait rod. This is an optimal solution created without sacrificing any of the abilities required for each.

  • Quattro woven cloth
    The bat section uses Quattro woven cloth, which has a higher lamination density and thicker weave than conventional Quattro (4-axis) cloth. Strongly suppresses twisting and cracking of blanks.
  • ■ Guide system
    Emphasizing the balance between weight reduction and strength, we have adopted a SiC ring and titanium frame guide that is neither too large nor too small.

    ●Top: SiC ring/titanium frame guide
    ●Tip to belly (4 pieces): SiC ring/titanium frame reinforced single foot guide
    ●Berry butt (4 pieces): SiC ring/titanium frame double foot guide
    Furthermore, (1) compared to the general setting, the lifting power is strengthened by placing the original guide on the grip side, which has more blank power. ② By widening the spacing between the guides from belly to butt, it is easier to create line slack, and it suppresses excessive line tension, which is a negative factor when operating lures.
  • ■ Grip design (fore)
    Foregripless design allows for lightweight and sharp operation. A design that eliminates thread winding between the blank and the grip, allowing for direct contact with the blank when palming.
  • ■ Grip design (reel seat)
    Emphasizing gripping performance, operability, and sensitivity, we have adopted a slender and lightweight blank-touch Fuji ECS reel seat.
  • ■ Grip design (center/rear)
    Separate type that supports casting from all directions and pursues operability and weight reduction.

    Both the center grip and rear grip are made of high-hardness EVA, achieving the excellent durability unique to EVA material and the direct feel of operation due to the hard material.
