These rods are the culmination of years of fishing rod development and the latest in Daiwa Rod Technologies. A Complete Renewal of the Classic Black Label line, the rods are designed and constructed with 2 Different concepts in mind, sensitive and limber. The SG or Sensitive Graphite models are well suited for worms, jigs and dropshot. Techniques that demand sensitivity, feel and a quicker action. The LG or Limber Graphite models are designed for crank baits, soft jerk baits and stick baits. The limber bend utilizes a blank formulation that has the properties and strength of fiberglass without the traditional size and weight. This Nanoplus HVF Carbon Technology reinforces the blank through a micro-level arrangement of material in the plastic resin. This creates a smaller, lighter, more rigid blank. The 3DX Honeycomb Structure of the blank enhances compression with a high recovering force balanced in 360°. The X-45 Bias Construction has greater strength and prevents twisting for more precise casting. No expense is spared with the Fuji SIC Guides, state of the art in the industry. The Brand New Shaped Reel Seat is streamlined and holds the reel fast and secure. The Quality Natural Cork Handle provides a firm, solid grip on the rod. If you want to see the best rod that Daiwa engineers can produce, than put the newly redesigned BLX® JDM BASS RODS in your hand. You may not want to let go.
