Whenever I see Japanese jigging/popping video, I are using fighting belt way high even fighting big fish. It looks their fighting position akward as they use long butt. I have a bad back and I can not fight big tuna more than 15 minutes wih such a position. Apparently many guys take it as granted and use them wihout any complaint. Do I miss something ? They use fighting belts for two purposes : for jigging/popping and for fighting fish. I think the lower position of fighting belt is easier for jigging/popping too. When I saw Jigging Master's fighting belt, I was shocked as it was the first fighting belt I've ever seen for Japanese jigging/popping which has drop down belt. How do you guys think ? Is there any benefit to use fighting belts high ? Bret fighting a nice bluefin on JM fighting belt. It looks more natural and comfortable.
