XOS GT'n'Doggie Slow Pitch / Fast punch jig rods back in stock PE1-3 & 2-4 , be quick before they sell out again!

These are the best performance jig rod Hamachi have ever built 

Slow Pitch / Fast Punch
Most Japanese domestic market rods for slow pitch jigging are designed for use from a spankered boat, a powerboat with a tail sail rarely seen outside of Japan that provides near perfect vertical jigging, both constant contact with the jig and no line belly.
To achieve this without a spankered boat anglers find themselves using jigs up to 150% of the rod’s rating, greatly reducing the rods ability to impart the real to life action into the jig. The XOS GT’n’Doggie Expedition™ slow jig rods have been designed for semi vertical to vertical drift jigging; the boat is slowed for vertical jigging with a combination of power and sea anchor. The rods are capable of both fast pitch or punch jigging as well as traditional slow pitch/fall jigging.
When using the crank and jerk slow pitch technique, the rod tip is designed to load up to the weight of the jig and slowly spring back up, pitching the jig in a manner very true to nature of a scared or injured baitfish. Using the fast pitch jigs ratings, the lighter jigs enable the rod to quickly spring back creating an energetic fleeing baitfish with the jig.
