RIPPLE FISHER GTX EXP 81M
Ripplefisher’s 3 piece pack rod, “GTXpedition” model has been reborn. When considering recent traveling limitations, the collapsed length has been set to 887mm for the two PE6 and PE8 class rods. These models are not only suitable for your GT fishing in exotic locations but also trips targeting massive kingfish. By combining these rods with the Aquila EX models, anglers will have a wider range to choose from depending on the sea conditions, lure size and target size.
By reviewing the bending of the new GTXpedition models, we were able to perfect it as a 3 piece rod. With its lightness, outstanding balance, sharpness and appropriate bending curve, you will not believe it to be a multi piece rod.
We hope you can first handedly experience the ever improving technology at Ripplefisher.
Although the GTX series were developed as a 3 piece model for fishing trips overseas, they are also ideal for not only domestic GT, but also the casting game for Kingfish. The difference from the PE6 class Aquila EX is the sharp stiffness during the casting, whereas the Aquila EX is more suited for technical small maneuvers of the lure. In addition, the stiffness and strength of the regular tapered GTX series have made it easy to perform long jerks of the lure at a consistent pace.
OCEANVOYAGER GTXPEDITION 81M
This is a PE6 class multi piece model to target GT and Kingfish domestically or internationally. It is ideal for use with diving pencils and small mouthed poppers. The seamless bending curve pleasantly surprise you as it will not feel like a 3 piece blank. Anglers will be able to cast into strong head winds with its added sharpness and the blank will assist anglers to maintain balance during the fight and efficiently lift the fish. We are proud to present you this rod with the potential to go head to head against 30~40kg class GT while being a PE6 class light and sharp rod.
