MORETHAN BRANZINO AGS

Rods you cannot match !

Morethan Branzino AGS rods are once again pushing the very limits of lightness and sensitivity. They are without a shadow of a doubt the most sensitive and accurate rods available to the modern lure angler. Inspired by the Italian name for Mediterranean sea bass, the Branzinos have been developed for bass hunting in Japan. Our rods have been exclusively adjusted to the demands of European bass fishing according to the specifications we sent to the Daiwa factory in Tokyo. This is the story behind these exceptional rods which boast cutting-edge technologies such as SVF Compile-X carbon, which blends several resins to improve the hold between fibres. Daiwa uses Toray nanotechnology and pushes it to the optimum with our own manufacturing process for a nanometric adjustment of the resins! This technique produces ultra-high-density, super-sensitive rods that are both lighter and stronger than any predecessor. To push this range to the very limit of excellence, new carbon AGS guides were trialled and developed: they are now 30% lighter. Their carbon mount is the same thickness but has a new, finer coating that covers a new silver coloured ring in cobalt oxide. These mounts are also 35 % smaller, allowing you to achieve greater distance on the cast thanks to the minimised tip vibration. Daiwa Japan engineers have used ESS technology to digitally interpret the effort of the blank on the cast and under tension with microscopic precision.
