I haven't seen any prices yet.
I have heard that these have adjustable handles, guessing like those ABUs from a few years ago, kind of gimmicky if you ask me.

Thanks. Can't say I've ever got the point of an adjustable handle. I've never been fishing and thought I wish I could shorten this handle.

Whatever the handle may do, I think those look pretty sweet. I like Eva and a split grip now and again and I'm glad that new reel seat has not completely taken over. I especially like the lock nut assembly. I'm not a fan of everything starting to look plastic on everything and this rod looks pretty mad max metal. I'd like to know more about the blank.

Found this video of grip adjustment. Hope it works. Might need to scroll down to video.

Here they are. Priced like premium rods. You can fish em with handle closed/full grip style.

Love the looks of these! Unfortunately, only one casting rod in the entire lineup is fast action. :doh:
(I've gotten to where I want a fast action for everything, including treble/moving baits. I just get a better hook up ratio(especially at long range) & higher landing percentage with a fast rod, plus I prefer the 'snap' hookset to 'sweep'. Anywho.)
But I bet that 76xxh with the handle shorted(closed) would make for an outstanding lunker punker rod!

I remember getting a Veritas or whatever they're called. The Adjustable crap broke before it got on the water :mrgreen: . On Abu it was trash, but on MB im sure it'll be great. Short handle for jerkbaits and a longer one for spinnerbaits on a Medium powered rod could be nice.

From what I'm hearing, these rods are all a 40% glass 60% graphite blended blank with a "power" concept. As soon as I have more info, I'll post it up on the site and take orders if anyone wants to try these out...

So JDM only, I assume?
Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.

Better buy updated Orochi line up than those...
Handles look terrible.
