It has a length that can be carried by a source-oriented angler without stress. SS4-Custom thoroughly eliminates the decrease in action due to the increase in the number of connections. We set a test period of three years and verified the power zone of each model many times.
Allwood reel seat
The Fuji ACS seat used in BST and BST-EXS is excellent in terms of functionality and matching with low profile type bait reels. However, in recent years, specialized bait finesse machines have become available, and in some cases round reels and classical taste reels have been used. In the midst of this widespread taste spread, SS-4Custom has adopted a wood reel seat that is excellent for matching with any reel.
However, Mr. Motoyama, who had pointed out the drawback of wood reel seats using metal triggers for some time, sought an all-wood reel seat with SS4-Custom.
At the time of development, "If high price setting is allowed, I want to commercialize it by my own self. If it is not commercialized, I would like to work on only the test model", made for Allwood for about two seasons Test the reel seat. It has become the current shape after undergoing a durability test and reviewing the shape to improve its usability.
