    Matstutani-san has been preparing his own business since he left Sevenseas and now he introduced new jigs under his new Patriot-Design company.
    It is obvious his new jigs are very similar to Sevenseas Hooker jigs as you see in the picture below. But it is natural as he also developed Hooker jigs also.
    Hooker jigs are one of my favorite tuna jigs and I have no doubt new Patriot-Design jigs are going to be tuna killer too.

    Kil, can we assume Anglers-proshop will carry these
    or will U.S. distribution be more widespread?
    very nice, I want some

    I got the impression that Patriot-Design products are available to US distributions as I got the information from Tuna Fish Tackle - Offshore and Inshore Premium Fishing Tackle which is located in Long Island, NY. They say they are going to carry those jigs soon.
    I also assume that Anglers Proshop will be the main source of providing Patriot-Design products considering Randy and Matsutani's relationship.

    I have several but put them away after losing 2 Hookers. Haven't caught anything on it yet - in safe keeping for now. Nice jigs...go for it.
