It's like tying a line to a willow branch."
At first, the Jet Setter was designed for throwing small plugs and lightweight lures with light line. If anything, the model was designed to play with trout tribe. Small fish in general, to play with light.
The blanks used for Jet Setter are basically supple and sticky. Casting is done with the weight of the lure firmly on the rod, and when a fish is hooked, you can enjoy the bend of the rod, and the bend will draw the fish in and follow the irregular movement as far as it goes.
Light line, in terms of PE, is under No. 1. With monofilament (nylon or fluorocarbon) line, you can fight with 6 pounds or less. Just as a spinning reel has drag performance, the rod is designed to dampen and decelerate large forces. Just as a spinning reel has drag performance, a rod is designed to dampen and decelerate large forces, just as a spinning reel has drag performance. We wanted to create a rod like a lightweight sports car with good suspension and dampers.
As for the line, as mentioned above, we used PE of 1 or less, and monofilament line of up to 6 pounds. The reel would be small, lightweight, and fun enough to use with a smooth drag. No limit of fish to target. Anglers should think about this rod in their hands. Trout family, largemouth, smallmouth, small fish in the creek, the fish that will play with you if you go to the sea are endless. Mebaru, scorpionfish, lingcod, chinook, sea bass, small squids, horse mackerel, mackerel... You want to bend it anytime, you want to cast it like you draw a bow, so we always want to have it with us, which is why it became a compact and mobile pack rod.
Oh, yes, we have adopted American-made microwave guides for the first time in this rod. After using both the Japanese-made guides and the Microwave guides, we found that they had their advantages and disadvantages. The Microwave guide gave a slightly longer casting distance, and although it depends on the guide setting, we felt it was more enjoyable. So we decided to go with the more enjoyable one, just like JetSetter.
