Time is flying. GT trip with Ed of No Boundaries starts from Sept 28.
Ed, who became a pro staff of Black Hole rods asked me to develop heavier than 8' Black Hole Cape Cod Special Graphite rods. He likes the rods and landed several GT upto 64kg with them, but he said the rods are good for upto 180g lures and he feel heavier rods are needed to use 200g - 250g lures for GT.
Unfortunately Black Hole can not make prototype rods in time for my trip as they are extremely busy.
As soon as the prototype rods are ready, I'll ship them to Ed of No Boundaries for testing.
Tsurusaki San of FCL Labo joins the trip. He was the guy who introduced GT popping to Japan when he worked for Yozuri in Australia 25 years ago.
