2020 Hamachi XOS GT'n'DOGGIE Expedition™ Series SLOW PITCH/FAST PUNCH JIG Rod (SP/FP)
Whats new in Hamachi's 2020 models? In short all our 2020 models have updated nano carbon blanks meaning, higher tensile, longer casts, more sensitivity and even more pulling power and always comes with a lifetime warranty.
The XOS GT’n’Doggie Expedition™ Jig rods' raise the bar for jig rod capabilities, building on the popularity of the original XOS GT'n'Doggie jig rods.
The Hamachi Expedition series jigging rods are available both in slow pitch (slow fall)/Fast punch and traditional high-speed jig. Our Expedition jig rods have semi parabolic thin diameter blanks in either a butt joint 2 piece or seamless curve 2 piece with serious grunt.
Slow Pitch / Fast Punch (SP/FP)
Most Japanese domestic market (JDM) rods for slow pitch jigging are designed to be 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 lure rating, greatly reducing the ability to give their jig a natural and life like action. Our XOS GT’n’Doggie Expedition™ SP/FP jig rods' have been designed for semi vertical and vertical drift jigging, when vertical jigging a combination of engine power and sea anchor should be used to achieve the best results. The SP/FP are built for both, fast pitch, fast punch and slow pitch/fall jigging.
When you're 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.
All Hamachi rods' come with a rod bag divided into sections for each piece of the rod.
