    Many thanks! It was an awesome trip for Sami and I and hopefully we can do it again! Just a very long way to travel but well worth it! Especially all the new products and toys we saw and ordered!

    Hi john, Totally agree, We were walking around Osaka at night with no worries and we would leave all our tackle, luggage etc out at Fukui-sans house at night plus on the boat. I asked several times are they sure its safe and they laughed at me and said yes with 100% conviction! As for the Japanese Products unfortunately there is not much comparison as they have been doing it for so long and also quality control is unreal what I saw at the Carpenter Factory but unfortunately it is expensive as quality costs.

    Hi Mark! Hope you're well! I now Sami is getting or already has the 56H and 56XH but the 52 will take another month or two to complete production. As soon as it is ready I'll make sure he gives you a shout.

    Cheers,
    Nick

    Hi Hany, many thanks! Was great trip! I still think the Musandam GTs are the strongest I have hooked up due to deep water and strong current. The Japanese GT is strong the the fish are a lot shorter and rounder. But they were very difficult to land in the rough weather! End of the day a GT is a GT!

    Hi Tom, Maybe next year in NC we can give the Chicken sashimi a go!! Just very happy nothing happened!

    Cheers,
    Nick
