I got informed that the rod company needs field testing of the new carbon rods with 100 lbs lifting power before they make productions and ask me to find field testers as they can provide the jigging rods for $280 plus $20 shipping within the US with limited numbers.

250g, 350g and 450g are available with the lengh of 5', 5'2" and 5'4".
You have a choice of aluminum gimbla or robber gimbal and choice of regular Fuji reel seat with trigger or without trigger.
You also have a choice of conventional and spinning.
All guides are Fuji SIC and Fuji real seats are used.

All you have to do in return is to give you honest opinions and recommendations.

Please contact you if you like to join the program.

Kil - I'd like to demo a 450g in the longer length, even if factory would consider that weight in a 5'8" / 6'0" that would be ideal. I think my new favorite jigging rod is now the 450g 6' J/M and second the 400g OTI 6', I like the added length not for speed jigging but for yo yo style I feel that I can move the jig more with less effort.

I plan to go to P/V for Roosterfishing and Snapper jigging so this might idea. Also would try using it to pitch baits if all else fails I like to take google eyes out with me in P/V as backup plan.

450g longest length
Fuji Soft Touch reel seat NO trigger
Casting guides ICMNSG ?
Fuji Nylon Reel Seat
Matagi Silver Locking Nut ?

Kil, do you have a sample of their 450g blank right now? or just the 250g rod? I'm wondering if you think the 450g is stronger than the Wei World :)

I'm going jigging with BIGSWORDY at the end of December (leaving the 30th) off of Stuart, FL. 12 miles off, 700ft deep for a couple of days and I'd love to take one or two of these rods with me. Especially the 450g at least for the deep drop :) Reply back to my PM Kil. Lemme know what's up and if I can be a tester.

When I asked, they didn't object to sell blanks after they complete rods/blanks.

Abuse the rods as much as you can. :)
