Product Testing Report - April 09-12, 2012

Location: Nagasaki, Japan

Target: Hiramasa (Yellowtail Kingfish)

Source: Carpenter Japan


Hiramasa 24kg on BLC 80/40R-PM SC prototype rod + BF 100

Fighting time around 1 minute. This rod gives angler a great control for large fish and really see fish is giving up during fight.

We are hoping to move this model to production in near future.


I kept casting Pandora 155+30 for a few hours and finally caught two Hiramasa.

It was during time they didn't take jigs and I see great potential of Pandora for Hiramasa.

20kg over Kingfish was caught on Pandora in New Zealand.


Endless Passion + BF 120

I recently started spending long hours for jigging on testing trip. This is for further testing to completing my Pandora theory and I surprise how often I find something very interesting that I maybe able to use for top water lures.


We had good progress on testing plan.
