Grand Cobra Limited (Black Series)

In addition to tournaments, Katsutaka Imae has always loved bass fishing in undeveloped mountain ponds as a hobby. Walking along the mountain path with numerous tackles was a tremendous stress and trouble for Imae, who was trying to explore the unexplored area of ​​the Amazon, where Okakari in Noike, which sometimes reached Togenkyo at the end of intense Yabukogi.

“Is it possible to combine the performance of several rods used in Okappari into one?”

Imae, who is ideal for active shore fishing, began to develop the concept of a grand cobra, the big plug, that is, Noike Big bait fishing was a big success.

However, in addition to the basic ability of Occupali that can handle Texas rigs, rubber jigs, spinner baits and braided jigs, it can handle big baits that are plugs and swim baits that can swim. It was extremely difficult to design a rod that satisfies such a wide range of conditions.

A rod that can handle light-sized lures lightly, of course, lacks power and strength, and even a big bait cast remains. On the other hand, the power up of the rod due to the support for the heavy weight lure naturally increases the weight, and the lightness and versatility of handling a general size lure is lost.

In order to clear the challenge, I want a regular regular slow low taper design that demonstrates the power of the entire rod, not the fast taper. However, if a general medium elastic carbon is rolled up thickly, the taper is loose, so the overall torque and stickiness will appear, but the feeling of tipping will not be halfway. Nonetheless, the high elasticity material reduces the range of weight used and the ability to handle rolls and rides due to the crisp feel.

In the face of Imae’s too high ideals and demands, he was driven to the point of abandoning this concept.

In the process of suffering, the newest carbon material “Torayca® T1100G”, which was quickly incorporated into the test, became the biggest key to breaking through this concept. It is a state-of-the-art, high-performance, 33-ton carbon material that has achieved both high strength and high elastic modulus, which have been considered to be technically difficult.

This lightweight, high-strength state-of-the-art high-performance carbon sheet is intentionally wound thickly, and it has a high elasticity and lightness. Blank design. And the whole body quattro cross (4-axis) armed to reinforce the main shaft that becomes the core. The groundbreaking state-of-the-art carbon is used as the main material, and all the technologies we have cultivated so far are poured into it. After three years of development, it is finally completed.

We are good at full casts and low ballistic casts with 3 oz class big baits on blanks, and at the same time, we have the ability to carry swim baits and bites that suck in scrolls comfortably. And while having the operability to handle the 5 gram Texas rig lightly, it has a strong and muscular rigidity that always takes the lead in heavy covers and glass areas. A single “universal dream bait rod” grand cobra to be brought to Okapari, which has both dexterity and bone thickness.

Ironically, the high degree of perfection can be seen from the fact that Imae is frequently used not only for Occupali coverage but also for boat fishing and tournaments. Whether casting or pitching, swim bait, big bait, crawler bait, football, slow roll, zig worm, snake caro, etc … This is absolute evidence supporting Imae’s confidence and confidence.

The Grand Cobra, developed for use on the GROUND, has grown greatly over the past three years and has become a snake that descends to the ground as GRAND COBRA.

  • blank
    ■ Torayca® “T1100G” & “Nanoalloy® Technology” A
    low taper blank with a carbon prepreg that uses “Nanoalloy® Technology” applied to a high-strength, high-modulus carbon fiber “Torayca®“ T1100G ””. Lightweight and slim, while providing a sharp feeling of operation, it demonstrates amazing tenacity and power. It can be used for various purposes due to the conflicting property of “bending despite tension”.Furthermore, all the layers from the tip to the bat are rolled up with the TORAYCA® “T1100G”, creating a stagnation bend curve and, in turn, an extraordinary follow-up capability for a wide range of weight lures.

  • ■ Kaleido Super Quattro Cloth The
    entire body is reinforced with Super Quattro Cloth (4-axis seat) to prevent twisting without making it harder and harder than necessary. Hybrid full wrapping specification with ± 45 ° manufacturing method from top to former guide, and ± 30 ° manufacturing method with high density of diagonal reinforcement and higher power from the original guide to the lower bat part. This setting maximizes the light and strong characteristics of the “Torayca® T1100G” blank.

  • Guide system
    All guides are double foot guides (Fuji titanium frame / torzite ring) that emphasize strength. By doubling the area of ​​the guide foot and the thread, it is reinforced against bending and twisting, and toughness and torque are increased.

    Realized the lightness and center of gravity of the blank itself using the high-strength, high-modulus carbon fiber “Treca®“ T1100G ”” in the thick low taper + all-double foot guide, which is generally said to give a sense of weight. Guide choice that enables the blank thickness design in the grip.

  • Fore grip
    Eliminating the fore grip and realizing further weight reduction. In addition to the winding check of the sharp design, the minimum 4-axis carbon sleeve nut greatly contributes to weight reduction and high sensitivity.

    In the Inspire series, only the black series Grand Cobra uses aurora-colored winding checks.

  • Reel seat design
    The reel seat is a thin and lightweight Fuji ECS reel seat with a blank touch method that emphasizes ease of grip and sensitivity. The black series has a black mica color that matches the EVA grip, creating the texture of the finest model.
  • Sign
    As a proof of Katsutaka Imae’s production, the black series reel sheet was signed in Chinese characters.
  • Grip design
    Uses a separate grip that emphasizes operability and weight reduction. The black series uses EVA as the material for the center and rear grips. EVA has a gradual kickback to the wrist when casting, so it has an advantage in continuous casting of heavy lures and moving lures.

    In addition, because of its high shape durability, it also has the feature that it does not fade or crack even after long-term use. The grip end is fitted with an original end plate with a kaleidoscope motif.

  • Blank in grip
    By using 30 tons of carbon and winding it to the wall thickness, it achieves an appropriate weight balance in addition to rigidity. In addition, a blank in the grip with a dedicated design that eliminates twisting by reinforcing with 4 axes of ± 30 °.

    Prevents power loss due to bending, creates a feeling of rigidity when casting and hooking, and eliminates the feeling of weight by distributing the center of gravity in a balanced manner on the hand side while being a thick low taper + all double foot guide.
