We had good meetings with Black Hole for 2014 projects.
1. one-piece inshore/offshore rods
We are launching Black Hole one-piece inshore/offshore rods in 2014.
They are like original GLoomis with the characteristics of precise, thin, stiff and sensitivity.
The lengths are in 7' - 7'11" range.
There are two different sets of models: one is high-end model and the other is economic version
Models of line ratings are 12 lb, 20 lb, 30 lb, 40 lb, 50 lb and 60 lb.
The price ranges for high-end models with Fuji SCI guides are $300 - $400 while $150 - $200 for
economic version models.
2. slow jigging rods
Slow pitch jigging is pretty new to US fishermen, but slow jigging with light tackle has became extremely popular in Japan, Asia as well as Australia.
We plan to introduce Black Hole slow jigging rods with two different sets of rods: one is high-end and the other is
economic version. Black Hole Magic Eye rods are good for slow jigging, but the new rods have a little stiffer tip than Magic Eye models.
The high-end slow jigging rods will have Fuji SIC guides with three different models covering PE1 - PE3 lines.
The economic version models maintain super strength and right action, but it will be a little thicker than the high-end
3. Black Hole Blanks available from Mud Hole
Black Hole Blanks will be available from Mud Hole from 2014.
